Research commissioned by the HSE into the safety of Agricultural trailed vehicles revealed a significant deficit in braking efficiency among the majority of vehicles tested. The Agricultural industry recognised the test equipment and procedure utilised in this research and it became the approved brake efficiency test.
We hold the certification and equipment required to conduct brake efficiency testing utilising the BAGMA BRAKESAFE system. Should your requirements exceed that of inspection, please speak with us regarding a calibrated and industry recognised test.
Experts have found that brake testing and making relatively low-cost improvements are extremely valuable in preventing accidents while also helping to reduce overall servicing costs.
