About Dual Disc Pneumatic Brakes

Dover pneumatic brakes are an integral part of a high-performance tension control unwind package.


All DFE pneumatic brakes feature a limited travel piston that never scratches the disc, ductile iron disc construction, and expanded disc surface for rapid heat dissipation.

Our asbestos-free friction pads are available in several coefficients of friction. No tools are required to change the friction pads, making brake maintenance quick and "hassle free".

DFE's dual disc brakes are covered by the industry's only 'No Squeal' warranty. If you've got a brake squeal issue, DFE will fix it fast, replace it, or we'll return your money.
