An Introduction to Trailparts™ Braking Systems & Parts

It is important to consider what trailer braking system you require for your build. Trailparts have a full range or trailer braking systems both Indirect and Direct depending on your requirements / application.

Indirect Systems

Indirect service brakes are those that operate without input directly from the driver of the tow vehicle. They are usually inertia-activated systems and this is the most commonly used system under 2500 kg. Systems that comply with ECER13 up to 3500kg (Hygo mkII) are an indirect system also.

Direct Systems

Direct service brakes are those that operate as a direct result of braking input from the driver of the tow vehicle. They are load-adjustable and incorporate an emergency override function which operates the trailer brakes independently of the tow vehicle from the driver’s seat. See our Credo Wireless Brake Controller for a direct braking system with no in-cab wiring.
