Safety Brake Systems





Truck and Bus Safety Systems
  • Prevent accidents and reduce liabilities.

  • If a driver leaves the driver’s seat without first setting the parking brake, our systems will sound a warning and continue until the driver sets the parking brake or returns to the driver’s seat.

  • Set the parking brake or alert the driver that the brake is not set.

  • Replace manually setting and releasing of the parking brake button with the new SBS Easy Set System. Adding both ease and comfort to setting the parking brake as well as a high level of security and safety.

  • Whatever your needs may be in these areas, SBS will be glad to assist you in selection, design and installation. On-site installation training can also be arranged.

  • Personal injury, workman’s compensation claims, downtime, repairs, and other liabilities are not only costly but are time consuming as well. Call or E-Mail us today.

  • All SBS systems meet the requirements of NHTSA standard 121 and do not require brake re-certification. Parts are DOT approved and safety rated. All seat switches are manufactured using fire retardant foam and adhesives.


701

The SBS Kit 701D warning system can be quickly and easily installed on most vehicles and alerts the driver if the driver’s door is opened and the parking brake is not set. 701 Brake Alert Systems can be installed on all air and hydraulic brake equipped vehicles.

Four different 701 Brake Alert kits are available to choose from.

701D (Door Switch )

701S (Seat Switch )

701H (Hydraulic Brake)

701P (Proximity Switch )



701
The SBS 701P Parking Brake Warning System consists of an occupant sensor, an alarm mounted on a control module which contains a parking brake sensor and a super bright red blinking LED. A 5/32" tube is spliced into the parking brake air line using a slip fit tee, to determine if the parking brake is set or released.

The occupant sensor, when adjusted to detect the presence of the driver, will sound the alarm and blink the LED if the driver leaves the seat.

The system is activated only when the parking brake is released and does not draw any current when the brake is set.

This system is adaptable to any type of vehicle.
