For Independent Workshops
For Heavy Vehicle Workshops
SafeTstop plate brake testers provide state-of the-art test data from a test performed in the workshop in less than a minute. Tests are performed at walking pace, in the safety of your work area. SafeTstop also allows you to test wheel alignment and suspension; and A weigh-bridge is integrated into the system.
European engineered and built to last, SafeTstop testers provide your workshop with state-of-the-art technology, working with data that will help you find brake faults which are difficult to find when road testing. These include seized callipers, brake hose problems, faults with proportioning valves, leaks, air in the system, and master cylinder problems. Roller brake testing and plate brake testing measure the brake force on each individual wheel (in N.) These measurements show brake imbalances which may lead to dangerous emergency braking problems.
In addition to brake testing, SafeTstop tests wheel alignment using side slip testing. Proof of excessive tyre wear is measured, and allows you to minimise drag so your customers can achieve improved fuel efficiency and reduced tyre wear. Suspension is checked for compression and rebound, with results shown in percentages. Shock absorber performance can therefore be assessed.
SafeTstop includes a weigh-bridge and allows corner weight measurement as well as axle weights and total vehicle weights to be assessed; useful for utilities and 4 wheel drives. Heavy vehicle plate brake testers measure weights up to 5 tonne per wheel.
Your SafeTstop plate brake tester can be installed indoors or out, and does not require concrete cutting (although a flush mounted system is available). The above ground models sit 50mm above the floor, so they take up no space in your work area. SafeTstop has proven itself over 25 years in dealerships, independent workshops and heavy vehicle workshops. Recent Chain of Responsibility updates in Australia have made this technology even more relevant to heavy vehicle operators such as Councils and transport contractors.
SafeTstop meets NMI Europe requirements and is RMS, VicRoads, Qld Transport, and NZ Transport Agency approved for brake testing. Other authorities are pending.
SafeTstop tests brakes, rather than just “checking” brakes – expect more!!
“wow factor with customers…picks up faulty brakes on cars that pass other tests”
“My very experienced wheel alignment technician tells me … the reading (on the aligner) is EXACTLY as found by the SafeTstop. Now THAT impressed me.”
– Andrew, prestige dealer
“This machine appears to be bullet proof!”
“Test EVERY vehicle … on the way to the hoist!”
– Kensell Holden, Tamworth, NSW
“The team at SafeTstop are committed … values mirror the Toyota commitment to quality and safety. When you combine these core values with the benefits of the technology and the business case, it’s a compelling proposition.”
– Toyota New Zealand
“In 8 weeks of use, we have identified over 12 brake faults which we would not have detected with our previous on-road brake test method”
“Using the weighbridge and suspension facility, we were able to show evidence of work required….2 x spring upgrades on light commercials”
– Bosch Milperra
“Return on our Investment took slightly less than 3 months” “A much better return than our wheel alignment machine”
– City Mazda, Melbourne
“Not just a technical brake performance test, alignment check, suspension test and weighbridge – it’s a whole profit-generating business plan.”
– Col Crawford Honda
