Trailer Stopping Distance

I just ran across this test and thought I would pass it on. It is very difficult to convey the difference disc brakes makes. Except to those who already have them.

1st test was no trailer and the truck empty.
2nd & 3rd test used a 16,000 lb. trailer, using electric brakes.
Canadian Standards Tests show the Titan Disc Brake System stopping a 15,500 lb. trailer in 179 ft. using trailer brakes only. No truck brakes were used in this test.

This 179 ft. is a 100 ft. shorter stopping distance than this test using truck and trailer electric brakes!

Titian Brakes has sold out to Dexter Axel.
Titian Brakes are now being redesigned to better "fit" Dexter's production.

So Dexter's redesign should make the fastest actuator on the market even better! The hard parts, rotors, calipers etc., It makes no difference what they do with them because you can buy Kodiak, Dexter, UFP or Titan and there will not be any performance difference between the brands.

It is not important what brand of Disc brake you install on your trailer, just do it. The stopping power of Disc Brakes on trailers is far superior to electric brakes.
