Plate brake testing PROVEN by rigorous Australian research. Test brakes for safety and performance; inform yourself and your customer with a graphic printed report of every test. Test wheel alignment and suspension, too; integrated weighbridge function.
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.
“My very experienced wheel alignment technician tells me … the reading (on the aligner) is EXACTLY as found by the SafeTstop. Now THAT impressed me.”
