Brake Relining for Overhead Cranes and Elevators.

We understand that valuable downtime cost money and as a result to minimise downtime and cost, Custom Brakes and Hydraulics Ltd offer a 24-hour / 365 days reline service for the overhead crane and elevator service industry.

All modern friction materials we use are Asbestos Free, however, the brake relining materials we strip off brake bands and brake shoes may still contain old Asbestos based materials, due to this all our stripping work is carried out in a controlled environment, using dust extractors. Furthermore, old brake linings are safely disposed of in a sealed container . For safety reasons, many crane manufacturing and service providers require certification of Asbestos lining disposal , we can provide all required documentation and certification at your request.

Our modern workshop located in the heart of Sheffield and our skilled machinists enable us to carry out all types of relining and bonding services that you may require.

With over 40 years of experience, we are proud to offer a combination of high-quality workmanship, excellent customer service and competitive prices that you will not find elsewhere.

What a great place to recline your classic brake linings, older vehicles arnt that well served for parts anymore and it's a case of repair rather than replacement. A 24 hour turnaround can be better than waiting for the parts to arrive as well, it's also well priced to boot
