TRAILER DISC BRAKE PARTS FROM KODIAK, DEEMAXX, TIE DOWN ENGINEERING, TITAN & DICO and UFP.
Trailer surge disc brakes consist of a hydraulic coupler or ACTUATOR, hydraulic BRAKE TUBING, ROTORS and CALIPERS. Disc brakes are a more marine friendly alternative to drum & shoe systems. Some of the leading manufacturers are KODIAK, DEEMAXX, TIE DOWN ENGINEERING and UFP and they all sell a variety of different coatings and/or materials.
DISC BRAKES are available in sizes compatible with axles rated from 2,000 lbs (with brake flange) up to 10,000 lbs and vary in size classes from 8" rotor up to 13.1" rotor. The two most common sizes for general applications are 10" class and 12" class brakes, which fit 3,500 lb and 5,200-7,000 lb axles. Trailer Disc brakes provide superior braking power over drum brakes. A reverse lockout solenoid or ball valve should be installed at the actuator before installation of disc brakes. A specially designed Disc Brake Actuator is also available from TIE DOWN ENGINEERING, DEMCO, UFP, or TITAN to allow for easy installation.
When selecting trailer disc brake components for your trailer, consider the weight of trailer fully loaded with all cargo and equipment. For multi-axle trailers, consider how many axles will be equipped with brakes to meet your stopping requirements. Also, to get the most benefit from your brake system, follow the instructions for care and maintenance in the installation and service manual included with each actuator, foundation brake, and brake tubing kit.
