The Old Mechanical Brake Tester Tapley Now Retired As DVSA Say A Print Out Required

For almost 100 years Tapley brake testers have been the market leading portable brake testing equipment.

Results of Tapley Brake meter tests have been accepted as evidence of braking efficiency in Courts of Law throughout the world.

But now it seems the Tapley Brake Tester may well be retired in the UK, recent guidance from the DVSA now says a brake test must be printed for inspection records.

Decelerometers have moved on significantly from the old mechanical brake testers such as Tapley Decelerometer. Being electronic BrakeCheck has a much higher accuracy and additional information such as average deceleration, a left/right pull measurement, speed at braking and stopping distance. All tests are time and date stamped.

Pallet Lock Prevents Damage

Heygates Makes Truck Lock Lee Lock A Standard Fit To All New Trailers

DVSA (VOSA) & the Health & Safety Executive are pressing hard to prevent trailer unsecured loads.

Although most operators think of the goods within the trailer, the Pallet Truck could be classed as an Unsecured Load. Here at aide automotive ltd we have a simple lock for the pallet truck that will stop goods and curtain

The Pallet Truck Lock, Lee Lock has been installed in the Heygates Ltd ‘s trailer fleet, Stuart Lobley commented “With today’s high standards of road safety we have installed the Lock for a few years now, a simple but effective product.”

Make sure your load is safe

Ask yourself if:

· the load can slide or topple forward or back?

· the load can slide or topple off the side?

· the load is unstable?

· the load securing equipment is in good condition?

· there is anything loose that might fall off the load or vehicle?

· the load security or stability presents an immediate risk of injury?
Pallet Truck Lock Lee Lock is designed to lock the pallet truck in place at all times, hence reducing any chance of the truck slamming into other pallets, slashing the curtain side and as the pallet truck slots into the lock there’s no chance of moving or falling from a trailer.
