AXN Heavy Duty selects Brake Safe by Spectra Products

AXN Heavy Duty announced it has selected the Spectra Products Brake Safe system as its preferred solution for visual brake stroke indicators for use in both the OEM and aftermarket channels.

Commercial vehicle solution provider AXN Heavy Duty announced it has selected the Spectra Products Brake Safe system as its preferred solution for visual brake stroke indicators for use in both the OEM and aftermarket channels.

According to the company, with greater awareness and need for easy and reliable pre-trip inspections, largely driven by CSA, visual stroke indicators are becoming more of the standard than the exception. The Brake Safe solution provides the industry’s most reliable method for operators to ensure that brakes are within proper adjustment limits before every trip, the maker added.

AXN Vice President of Sales Jeff Hyatt stated, “Brake inspection is a basic requirement before every trip. Without some type of indicator, operators cannot be confident of ensuring that all their brakes are within proper adjustment. The Brake Safe system is a widely accepted solution, and one that is available on new vehicles from the OEM, as well as through the aftermarket for retrofit.”

Additionally, the system offers a wide range of products to fit most air brake systems offered today for both trucks and trailers.
