  • Approvals & Compatibility Calculations. All braked trailers used within the European Community are subject to stringent approval regulations, these regulations cover

    everything from the material used in the manufacture of them to the way the work and how they perform whilst in

    operation. Basic descriptions of the regulations are as follows:

    71/320 Covers the mandatory use of hydraulically damped couplings and compatible braking systems, originally covered

    standard or none auto reversing brakes. Came into force on the 1st of October 1982.

    85/647 Updated 71/320 and made the use of Auto-reversing brakes mandatory, came into force on the 1st of April 1989.

    98/12 -- Superseded both of the above.

    94/20 Covers the structural ability of the products to withstand the forces applied during use.

    When requesting a trailer compatibility calculation to be carried out, please ensure the following information has been given.

    1. MAXIMUM LADEN WEIGHT OF THE TRAILER Includes the trailer weight and its load.

    2. COUPLING MAKE AND TYPE Usually marked on the top or side of the main coupling body.

    3. BRAKE SIZE AND TYPE Normally stamped into the rear of the brake assembly.

    4. TYRE SIZE, TYPE AND ROLLING RADIUS OF TYRE The size is moulded on but you may have to contact

    the Tyre or Trailer manufacturer for precise measurement

    5. NUMBER OF AXLES Usually single or twin axle or sometimes triple, it also helps if you can tell us how they are

    configured ie:

    Single 1 Axle, Twin / Triple close coupled 2 or 3 axles which are mounted within 1 metre of each other or Twin/

    Triple turntable steered 2 or 3 axles where the front axle is mounted on a turntable arrangement and the 1 / 2 rear

    axles are at the back of the trailer ( on Triple axle turntables the rear two are usually close coupled)

    6. TRAILER MANUFACTURERS NAME Usually marked on the top or side of the main coupling body.

    7. TRAILER MODEL TYPE Usually marked on the top or side of the main coupling body.

    8. BRAKE OPERATING SYSTEM CABLE or RODS?

    Is it 1 rod going back from the coupling which connects to two, four or six sheathed cables which lead to the brakes,

    note this system may incorporate further shorter rods within the system.

    Is it rods all the way through from coupling to axles?

    Is it wire cable all the way through?

    Is it wire cable back to a connecting plate or balance bar and the sheathed cables from there to the brakes?

    If your coupling is an Adjustable Height type it will contain other cables within the system, contact sales for advice.

    1. Dont use a Din eyeshaft with a non Din Towing jaw

    2. Fittings (e.g. tailgates, hatches etc.) these and any load on the trailer must

    be properly secured

    3. Tow on the pin, Brake on the jaw 4. If its not approved, its not covered! 5. Ensure your jockey wheel is

    tightened and lodged so as to allow

    6. When turning, allow more room when towing

    7. Reversing Use the opposite lock to direction required, DO NOT allow

    radley Doublelock Ltd is widely recognised by many as the leading U.K. designer and manufacturer of a specific range

    of trailer components for use in the light trailer & towing industry. Originally established by H & K Bradley in 1948, Cleckheaton West Yorkshire, Bradley quickly grew to become a generic name synonymous for quality within the trailer manufacturing fraternity and by end users alike. It is well recognised as an innovative designer and producer of reliable robust products, which have determined the benchmark for the poorly regulated U.K. market. The Bradley head office and works are based in Bingley, West Yorkshire, which is approximately six miles north of Bradford, well served by an extensive motorway network affording easy access

    to all U.K. Trailer Manufacturers and their 85 distributors in all parts of the country. It is also well placed to service export markets through the ports of Liverpool and Hull. Bradley Doublelock Eire located in Athlone County Roscommon is the Irish distribution centre for all Bradley products in Ireland, established to directly service the needs of a growing number of Trailer Manufacturers both in the North and South of Ireland and in support of a country wide distribution base.
