Preparation at an early stage is crucial.

Preparation at an early stage is crucial.

Whats done now can save fortunes at a later date.

Buying a brake tester or Test Lane is always going to be one of the biggest investments in the workshop so choices made now will have an impact on the equipment's longevity in the future.

It’s going in the ground?
Yes, That's where the roller brake tester will be operating from.
Rainwater, snow, condensation or even workshop flooding are always a possibility so the steel support frame will could eventually rot?
To alleviate this issue all VLT equipments that are installed "in-ground" will be supplied with a fully galvanised chassis frame.
Note: This frame can be supplied direct to your builder prior to the equipment being sent to siteWhen installing this frame we
would always recommend installing an outlet storm drain.

Installation of the equipment.

Installation of the equipment.

Installation is carried out by factory trained engineers.

The time will arrive when the equipment has to be fitted.

Obviously this will cause downtime in the workshop, so planning is crucial?                                                         

We will liaise with the client or his builder, the date the equipment will be arriving, any lifting apparatus, any requirements for electrical supplies or isolators.

We will also arrange the date and time our engineers will be on-site to carry out the installation.

Its a known fact that lost time is lost money so we always want the installation to go as smoothly as possible.

All our engineers are fully factory trained in the installation and operation of the equipment, once the equipment is fully installed it will be tested and fully calibrated with necessary certification.

The equipment VLT16733 brake tester

The equipment VLT16733 brake tester

As installed in the UK's VOSA Test Lanes

The UK specification VLT16733 roller brake tester was specifically manufactured in conjunction with DVSA and is currently used in their Test Lanes today.

To meet the demands placed on them by such continual use the machines we supply are manufactured to extremely high standards and have a drive over weight of 20 tonnes, they are designed for the workshop environment in every respect and are exactly the same as the units we install for the DVSA.

The unit is supplied with license to use the DVSA database containing approximately 15,000 vehicles with PASS / FAIL results

During a standard brake test, following the test procedure on the screen, the unit will carry out weighing of each axle and brake force per wheel, foot-brake, handbrake, wheel lock etc. After the test is fully completed the software will display clear PASS/FAIL results with all the results recorded to the screen, in addition this data will be saved to the hard drive.

Printing out of these results is a simple operation, every vehicle which has passed over the rollers for test is recorded and a history of tests are logged and can be accessed at anytime.

Re-tests are simple as the vehicles data will not need to be changed or re-entered.
