Air brake systems

Solutions for agricultural and construction machinery

In modern agriculture, forestry and construction, tractor units are used in combination with one or more trailers to transport goods and products. In addition, increasingly heavy implements are transported to fields and construction sites on wheels.

The speed and high loading possibilities of the tractor/trailer combinations demand the highest level of operational and road safety. Here, air brake systems ensure the safe and efficient braking of the trailer.

Compliance with Regulations (EU) 167/2013 and (EU) 2015/68 from the Tractor Mother Regulation is now standard for many vehicle manufacturers. Tietjen naturally offers this standard in over 5,000 variants of air brake systems for almost all renowned manufacturers.
