BrakeMate reduces injury risk,
while saving time and money

The brake disc assembly on heavy commercial vehicles, coaches and buses can weigh up to 70kg, much higher than the 25kg limit recommended by HSE.

Lifting such weights can often lead to injuries which are not only painful to the employee but also financially painful to employers through lost time and compensation claims which can range from £10,000 to £30,000.

BrakeMate has been designed as an elevated service platform for servicing heavy vehicle brake disc assemblies. It eliminates the majority of manual lifting during the disc brake maintenance process and substantially reduces service time, leading to a saving in both time and money.

It also enables a single user to complete the whole process, rather than being a two-person job. This enables other jobs to be completed more efficiently, meaning further time savings.
