Textar Expands Lock Line for Emergency Brakes


Source: Textar announcement

Cleckheaton, U.K. Textar has expanded its aftermarket product range with the addition of expanding locks to ensure reliable emergency-brake function.

Damage to expanding locks is common in certain drum brake designs as the condition of the emergency can only be determined when the brake discs are removed.

Most manufacturers recommend replacing expanding locks every four years. Textar has recognized this as a key area when it comes to brake replacement and wants to ensure workshops are always supplied with premium quality aftermarket parts.

Utilizing cutting-edge technology, Textar products are precision engineered to offer maximum safety, performance and comfort. This uncompromising approach to product excellence has been the ethos of the brand for more than 100 years and has led to Textar being a trusted partner to the world’s leading vehicle manufacturers.

Textar, a subsidiary of TMD Friction, covers 99.9 percent of the United Kingdom automotive market and includes pads, discs, accessories and brake fluid available for next day delivery.

As a global premium brand offering a selection of OE and aftermarket products, Textar has a renowned reputation for high quality, performance and endurance. This makes it the brand of choice for factors and garages.
