Brake Pads And Shoes

Finding the correct new brake pads for your car can be a bit of a nightmare.

You visit your local car spares accessories shop, with all the information concerning your vehicle....Registration, Log Book, Chassis Number, even the colour.

You hand all the information to the helpful shop assistant, and with a few clicks of their ever active mouse, you get told.

"Sorry, there are four choices of pads for your vehicle. Do you know what they look like?"

But that should never be a problem when you use Pound Lane Auto Discounts, the number one stockist and supplier of brake pads, discs and brake shoes in Essex.

How Do Brake Pads And Shoes Work Then?

Brake pads are the parts of a car's braking system that actually take the brunt of the frictional force necessary to stop the car.

In a disc brake system, the brake pedal activates a hydraulic line which squeezes the brake calipers against the rotors of the car's tires.

Brake pads are positioned between the calipers and the rotors to absorb the energy and heat, then provide enough grip to stop the car.

A good analogy for understanding disc brakes is a ten speed bicycle.

The handgrip under the rider's hand is like the brake pedal of a car.

As the rider squeezes this grip, cables pull two hinged pieces called calipers together.

The calipers themselves do not contact the rim of the tire, but two rubber pieces do.

These rubber shoes work much like automotive brake pads.

The metallic rim of the tire is essentially a rotor.

The friction between the brake pads and rotor is the key to stopping in a disc brake system.

Eventually, however, the rubber shoes of a bicycle and the brake pads of a car will wear down and severely compromise the operator's safety.
