Splash Stop is fitted permanently if using a non lockable cap, with lockable caps the Splash Stop requires to be removed.

Truck & Trailer Brake Testing With An Infra Red Gun

March 22nd, 2017 Comments off

For Christmas 2016 aide automotive are offering a GIVE AWAY deal!

We have 4 Infra Red Temperature Guns to Give Away via a simple question.
Firstly though; Why An Infra Red Temp Gun??
Infra Red Temperature guns are a excellent Brake Tester for checking individual wheel disks or drums to determine brake activation.
We have heard that the DVSA often recommend the use of Infra Red Temperature Guns and see them as good practice in any Commercial Vehicle Fleet or Truck Workshop.
With the ease of just pointing the Infra Red Light at the wheel hub from the outer edge of a trailer or truck and without removing wheels, an infra Red Temp Gun can indicate if a wheel is not braking efficiently as compared to the other wheels on the vehicle.
We have reports of one Truck Driver stating “Been stopped about 10 times in my driving career over 30 years, the last time, he pointed a thermometer at my wheel hubs & explained to me that one was running cool, meaning that is wasn’t doing its job, I was amazed by the technology, didn’t realise that you could get a temperature reading with a laser/infrared light without even touching the hub. Got the workshop to adjust the brakes when I got back to the yard”
So if you want an early Christmas pressie, email us on with the answer to this question.
The DVSA Now recommend 4 Commercial Vehicle Brake tests per year using an RBT or decelerometer; whats does RBT stand for?

aide automotive‘s TrailerCheck 4 Vans has many advantages over DIY trailer light testers, one such advantage is the “Remote Hand Held Air Brake Activator”.
