Field Tests - Braking Systems

 E J Allen & Associates have the ability and facilities to conduct brake testing on wet   and dry surfaces on all types of vehicles. We can measure brake efficiency with “Brake Meter” and chalk gun and kinetic analyser equipment.

 

 

The following are examples of cases we have dealt with:

 

 

Fire Engine Appliance brake testing on wet surface. This work was carried out about the time of introduction of anti lock braking.

Vehicle transporter -   Brake testing on a vehicle transporter on a fully wetted surface

Fitting of the pneumatic gun to determine exactly when brakes applied.   Chalk pellet fired onto road surface and thus enabling measurement of stopping distance

 

Flooding the test track in preparation for brake testing using a water bowser we hired.
