Failsafe emergency brake options
How Our Technology Works
Our products are designed to operate in the toughest conditions on the planet. SIBS® Technology provides a safer operating environment for vehicles from underground mining, to high speed on the open road, to towing heavy loads.
Being fully sealed has the additional benefit of producing no harmful emissions, making SIBS® brakes environmentally sustainable.
How our Technology works?
The brake caliper, providing the braking force, is extended to enclose the disc. This makes up the housing. The housing is split around the disc into inner and outer portions. The inner housing is mounted to the axle end. The pads, disc, and hub are installed and the outer housing is fitted to complete the assembly and enclose the brake components. At this point, our patented cooling fluid is added to the housing. Our cooling fluid is a specially selected oil that provides a path to conduct the heat from the brake disc to the housing. This enables the heat to then be rejected from the housing to the surrounding air, controlling the operating temperature of the system.
Our technology covers both service and park brakes and can be applied to a wide range of advanced brake system to suit the diverse conditions you operate in.
