15 Years of Continual Growth

Based in Warrington, in the United Kingdom, the company specialises in the wholesale and distribution of air brake components on both a national and international level. Since commencing trading in March 2007 by Ian Harrison and Alex Fruish, FGH Air Brake has rapidly expanded to become one of the UK's premier stockists of genuine commercial air brake equipment.

Our Aim

The business philosophy of FGH is simple - we aim to provide an unparalleled service to our customers. The parts we supply are only of the highest quality. Predominately genuine, we only offer generic products that have been tried and tested in the UK, and have been quality checked by our technical engineer. By supplying these parts at competitive prices, we are also able to provide our customers with a significant trading advantage in the marketplace, when faced with competition from main agents. Since availability of product is one of the most important considerations for our customers, we offer a next day delivery by a selection of couriers to all our UK and Eire customers. And a same day van delivery service to those customers who are situated within range of our main distribution depot.

Our Products

The company carries an extensive range of stock, mainly covering genuine Wabco, Knorr-Bremse and Haldex, together with a fast-growing selection of generic components. A substantial range of FGH own brand slack adjusters are also available. All popular vehicle applications can be serviced from stock, including Daf, Volvo, Man, Iveco, and Mercedes to name but a few.

The most popular truck and trailer braking systems are covered, including ABS, EBS, MGX, Modal, Modular, Wabco Trailer Electronic Braking System (TEBS) TEBS E versions E0 to E6, Haldex EB+ GEN3 and EB+ 4.0 systems, Knorr Bremse TEBS G 2, G 2.1 and G 2.2
We also stock a vast range of power steering pumps, AdBlue pumps and NOx sensors.

Mechanical, hydraulic and air system components are held in stock, allowing the company to continue to supply parts for older vehicles, but with increasing demand for electronic braking system components, many electronic parts are also now held in stock.

Kongsberg

Disc-style brakes began in England in the 1890s; the first ever automobile disc brakes were patented by Frederick William Lanchester in his Birmingham factory in 1902, though it took another half century for his innovation to be widely adopted.

These brakes offer better stopping performance than comparable drum brakes, including resistance to "brake fade" caused by the overheating of brake components, and are able to recover quickly from immersion. Unlike a drum brake, the disc brake has no self-servo effect and the braking force is always proportional to the pressure placed on the braking pedal or lever.

Many early implementations for automobiles located the brakes on the inboard side of the driveshaft, near the differential, but most brakes today are located inside the wheels. (An inboard location reduces the unsprung weight and eliminates a source of heat transfer to the tires).

The brake caliper is the assembly which houses the brake pads and pistons. The pistons are usually made of aluminum or chrome-plated steel. There are two types of calipers: floating or fixed. A fixed caliper does not move relative to the disc. It uses one or more pairs of opposing pistons to clamp from each side of the disc, and is more complex and expensive than a floating caliper. A floating caliper (also called a "sliding caliper") moves with respect to the disc, along a line parallel to the axis of rotation of the disc; a piston on one side of the disc pushes the inner brake pad until it makes contact with the braking surface, then pulls the caliper body with the outer brake pad so pressure is applied to both sides of the disc.

Floating caliper (single piston) designs are subject to failure due to sticking which can occur due to dirt or corrosion if the vehicle is not operated regularly. This can cause the pad attached to the caliper to rub on the disc when the brake is released. This can reduce fuel effiency and cause excessive wear on the affected pad. Additional heat generated by the constantly rubbing pad can also lead to warping of the disc.
