TRP Brake Shoe Kits pass US test­ing

Big Rigs - - ADVERTORIAL -

QUAL­ITY as­sur­ance tests re­cently car­ried out by Link Man­u­fac­tur­ing in the US demon­strate TRP brake Shoe kits can con­fi­dently com­pete against peers in the af­ter-mar­ket brake shoe mar­ket.

PACCAR Parts is de­lighted to an­nounce that its TRP brand Brake Shoe Kits passed the North Amer­i­can Fed­eral Mo­tor Ve­hi­cle Safety Stan­dard (FMVSS 121), which is an in­dus­try recog­nised test. Aus­tralian De­sign Rules standards cur­rently only cover the com­plete dressed axle and do not ap­ply to the in­di­vid­ual parts like the brake shoe. Us­ing an in­dus­try recog­nised stan­dard like FMVSS 121 demon­strates that TRP Brake Shoe Kits can with­stand the de­mand­ing con­di­tions that trucks and trail­ers face on Aus­tralian roads.

Brake shoes are one of the most im­por­tant parts on any truck or trailer. Us­ing in­fe­rior lin­ings can mean pre­ma­ture wear and over­heat­ing which can cause brake fad­ing, dam­age to brake com­po­nents, costly re­pairs and, as Aus­tralia has seen in re­cent years, health haz­ards as­so­ci­ated to ques­tion­able lin­ing con­tent.

TRP is a brand of PACCAR Parts, an Aus­tralian based dis­trib­u­tor of truck and trailer parts de­signed for all makes of heavy trucks and trail­ers in­clud­ing Amer­i­can driv­e­lines and Euro­pean trucks. TRP Parts is one of Aus­tralia’s fastest grow­ing truck and trailer parts busi­nesses, of­fer­ing an ex­ten­sive and con­stantly ex­pand­ing range of af­ford­able, re­li­able and high qual­ity parts. TRP brake shoes of­fer value for money while never com­pro­mis­ing on qual­ity or per­for­mance, and are also backed with a 12-month un­lim­ited kilo­me­tre war­ranty.

The TRP Parts brake shoes which in­clude the Stan­dard 21K Gross Axle Weight Rating (21K GAWR) and Pre­mium (23K GAWR) brake shoes were specif­i­cally de­signed to re­main sta­ble through­out a wide op­er­at­ing tem­per­a­ture, pro­vide safe and se­cure heavy ve­hi­cle brak­ing.

The com­po­nents must also be able to stand up against any af­ter­mar­ket brake shoe in the mar­ket in terms of qual­ity, dura­bil­ity and per­for­mance.

“Test­ing the TRP brake shoes to the North Amer­i­can FMVSS 121 stan­dard means that the brake shoe lin­ings were put through an in­dus­try recog­nised test,” said Mar­cus Dunn, Se­nior Prod­uct Man­ager at PACCAR Parts Aus­tralia.

Mar­cus says: “Our brake shoes, which in­clude the TRP stan­dard and pre­mium brake lin­ings, were sub­jected to the FMVSS 121 tests to demon­strate to Aus­tralian truck and trailer op­er­a­tors that TRP Parts lives up to its prom­ise of of­fer­ing high qual­ity, yet rea­son­ably priced parts to its cus­tomers.”
