Mechanical Disc Brakes

Disc brakes are used for applications where resistance to corrosion is paramount. The open nature of disc brakes makes washing after salt water immersion a simple task. Disc brakes also allow quicker cooling during brake applications and therefore the disc brake system is less prone to brake fade.

AL-KO mechanical disc brake calipers are hot dip galvanised for maximum salt water corrosion resistance. The bushes, springs and bolts etc are made from stainless steel adding to the excellent capacity of this product to continue to function after exposure to corrosive environments.

The mechanical caliper comes in two configurations, forward pull and centre pull as shown in the photos below.

Forward pull is used on beam axles whilst centre pull is used when the AL-KO Independent Rubber Suspension (I.R.S.) is used. The simple cable actuation of these calipers and their uncomplicated design makes servicing a task that can be carried out by the “handyman”, saving on servicing cost. AL-KO mechanical calipers are suitable for disc hubs and rotors of thicknesses from 12mm to 15mm
