Our Industries / Brake Application Types

Utility

At Knott we understand the market requirements for your utility, recreational or turf care vehicles. Markets such as these need low cost effective solutions for parking applications which we offer in our compact drum brake configurations.

Service brake applications may be best suited for a disc brake. Knott offers mechanical calipers where expensive hydraulic systems are not required and hydraulic calipers when they are. Don’t discount the drum brake for a low cost service solution with parking easily integrated.

Material Handling

Material handling encompasses a wide-range different disciplines. Starting from the warehousing technology of classical fork lifts to container reach stackers weighing countless tons. A diverse industry needs diverse solutions; here is where Knott has the advantage. With the most complete brake line in the industry Knott can offer solutions for many applications. From spring applied- hydraulic released floating caliper systems in container stackers to hydro-servo drum brakes in IC engine fork lifts to multi-disc brake technology in electric fork lifts, we have your solution.

Agricultural

At Knott we work hand in hand with our customers to develop the desired solution for the application. We have brakes of all types for these applications including highly effective wet and dry multi-disc brakes; heavy duty calipers and well tested and proven drum brake solutions.

With pressures on the farming, forestry and construction industries to be efficient, it makes sense that some of today’s machines are faster, bigger, more powerful and more maneuverable. Braking technology for the mega-machines of today and tomorrow needs to be equally efficient, low-maintenance, convenient and economical.

Defense

Knott Brake offers solutions from our own development and production for defense and military applications. No matter the mission, area of use, environmental conditions, or weight conditions, we work closely with you to identify the optimal brake type and design for your vehicles. All of our designs can be used as both service or parking brakes.

Axle & Trailer

Knott Offers a wide range of trailer products for the European market. Some exporters, sending trailers into Europe, hire someone in Europe to retrofit them with CE approved components for road licensing.

In turn the under running gear that was purchased to get the trailers to Europe is not usable and discarded as shipping them back is not economical. With Knott’s complete line of trailer products available this costly process can be eliminated. We can supply everything you need for European trailers all CE approved with necessary documentation. We have worked hand in hand with local approval authorities so that trailers exported to Europe easily pass the licensing regulations for any European country.
