A brake shoe is the part of a braking system which carries the brake lining in the drum brakes used on automobiles, or the brake block in train brakes and bicycle brakes.
The brake shoe carries the brake lining, which is riveted or glued to the shoe. When the brake is applied, the shoe moves and presses the lining against the inside of the drum. The friction between lining and drum provides the braking effort. Energy is dissipated as heat. Modern cars have disc brakes all round, or discs at the front and drums at the rear.
An advantage of discs is that they can dissipate heat more quickly than drums so there is less risk of overheating. The reason for retaining drums at the rear is that a drum is more effective than a disc as a parking brake.
Major advantages are:
3 & 4 Wheeler Brake Shoes
From the safety prospective nothing is more than a vehicle’s braking capability. This braking capability should hold out in a variety of operating conditions like heavy traffic in the city, express highway or hilly terrain driving, braking on roads that are strait or curved, dry or wet, smooth or rough and while pulling a trailer whether lightly or fully laden. Our Brake shoes meet these requirements with minimum fade, noise speed sensitivity and have exceptionally low wear characteristics with proven performance recorded on brake dynamometer and actual vehicles on test tracks.
