After 40 years of experience behind us and a constant industrial and product development that has taken us to the European aftermarket leadership, Road House now associates technologically with the largest Asian disc brake manufacturer to offer you a range of discs with le highest quality expected from a company with our position and able to meet the expectations of the European market and drivers. Following five years joining development and evolution we meet 99% of European market with a fully tested product able to have been approved under KBA homologation (Federal Motor Transport Authority) in the German TUV:
– ABE 61209 approval for ventilated discs.
– ABE 61210 approval for solid discs.
Just as we did with our brake pads, our discs raw material is selected keeping in mind the highest European Standards. Road House discs are built in grey iron smelting with very high laminar graphite content in a perlitic matrix which exceeds the EN-GJL200 grade and the GG20 standard tensile strength, requiring a minimum resistance of 200 N/mm, so that it meets as well DIN EN 1561 standard rule usually required by car manufacturers. Flatness and parallelism are basic essentials for the correct braking operation. We specify our own minimum safety margins and tolerances comparing them with the competitors and O.E., overwhelming favorable results in both DTV, run out and warping avoiding annoying vibrations, noise, judder in brake pads and pernicious effects in driving. Road House R&D division checks each manufactured serie by registering samples of the smelting and verifying it under metallographic analysis. Dynamometer crack tests are performed as well to check the resistance of the disc until the cracks coming to the surface.
Both AK Master testing program in our R&D centers and fleet tests performed on road and circuit make a total over 25000 hours and 2 million kms of global R&D testing work a year. That means a guarantee for the quality of our brake pads and discs. Producing over 40 million discs a year requires top level industrial Company, well developed with quality culture and fully aimed to be a World Wide leader in the brake disc industry. Of course that would be impossible if the goal were only based in the volume but in the quality as well meeting or exceeding all the European standard tests performed by the main car producers.
