Yaw Brakes


Over last few years we have particularly followed up the production of brake pads for yaw brakes on wind mills. Our pads give extremely high quality to our costumers, not only because of friction coefficient and resistance to extreme conditions but also reliability of the bonding. Our friction materials give high friction coefficient in static and high compression resistance on the pads. As usual, Frenos Sauleda collaborates in the design of projects to find tailor-made solutions.
