You’ve been testing brakes for years, but what do you find with a road test? If the vehicle’s braking distance is 2 metres longer than it should be, what happens in an emergency? Side to side and front to rear brake balance are crucial to stop a car in the shortest distance. Do you really know the brake balance when you road test?

The research has been done for you. As the leader in Australian brake testing, SafeTstop is proud to be a co-sponsor of a study comparing the 4 methods of testing brakes in Australia. The Commonwealth government supported this research, done by the University of Adelaide Centre for Automotive Safety Research.

This study is the first of its kind, worldwide, in more than 30 years. Yes, that’s right. There hasn’t been academic research into the effectiveness of brake tests since before we had ABS. We’re still using the same technology to test brakes that we used before we had traction control, or mobile phones, or GPS.

This study compared the decelerometer, the roller tester, the plate brake tester and the stopping distance test, to see what brake faults were detected by each system. Common brake faults were replicated: seized calipers, blocked hoses, faulty proportioning valves, air in the system and master cylinder problems. The results of the study will be released in a few weeks.

The SafeTstop plate brake tester was the system the researchers used as an example of this type of testing, which is the only one designed and manufactured in Australia. The results it generates are very impressive – just ask a SafeTstop workshop

SafeTstop – we’ve done the research – so you don’t have to.

    Fantastic product, and great... after-sales support. The platetronic tester gives our customers security in knowing that their vehicles are being tested at a high level for brake imbalance, forces, and for steering geometry readings. Highly recommended.read more

    I did not realise the value... of Safe T Stop until we invested in one and had it installed. This piece of equipment would be number 1 as the most productive tool in the workshop as well as being accurate in its testing and diagnosis. Safe T Stop makes diagnosing and testing brakes and suspension easy and simplified with pin point accuracy. Highly recomend it for any workshop.read more

    We at DRC AUTOMOTIVE had a... safetstop installed at our workshop and think it’s a great piece of equipment, every car that is serviced in our shop is driven over the safetstop to check and know it’s leaving with all brakes working as they should. We never realised how important this equipment is and what we have found when using it. Also the team at safetstop have always been great and would highly recommend to any other workshops Dion Clayton/ DRC Automotiveread more
