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.

Relined the clutch plate for my 1948 Flying Standard 12. Courier there, stripped down painted and relined, returned within a week. Very good value as well. Will definitely get the brake shoes done at CBH Ltd when they need it. Would definitely recommend them. Thanks Pete

Currently restoring a TVR Cerbera and unfortunately couldn't source a new clutch without getting the flywheel and bell housing machined. Posted my old clutch upto them, 1 week later it's back after a full rebuild looking like new. Very pleased.

Took these guys some obsolete drum brake shoes from my old cherry picker, when trying to replace them everyone was saying "no chance". I dropped them off in the afternoon & they rang the next morning saying they were ready!!! Best service ever+++++
