High-Quality Replacement Electric Brake Magnets

Browse Brake Magnets for Trailer/Caravan Backing Plates

Electric brake magnets are crucial components in the braking systems of caravans, responsible for providing the necessary friction to slow down or stop the caravan when towing.

When it comes to these magnets, there are two main categories: standard and off-road, available in 10″ and 12″ sizes.

What are Standard Brake Magnets?

Standard electric brake magnets are designed for use on paved roads and highways. They are suitable for conventional caravans that will primarily travel on smooth surfaces.

These magnets provide reliable stopping power and are built to withstand the wear and tear of standard road conditions. They are the go-to choice for most caravan owners due to their efficiency and affordability.

What are Off-Road Brake Magnets?

In contrast, off-road electric brake magnets are specifically engineered for rugged and uneven terrains. Caravans used for off-road adventures require superior brake performance, as they often encounter dirt tracks, gravel roads, and uneven surfaces. Off-road magnets offer enhanced durability, heat resistance, and superior braking power, ensuring safe and reliable stops even in challenging conditions.

Do I Need 10″ or 12″ Brake Magnets?

The choice between a 10″ and 12″ electric brake magnet depends on the size of your backing plate and drum. Smaller caravans may suffice with 10″ magnets for a 10″ backing plate.

Ensuring that you select the appropriate size is critical for safe towing, as it directly impacts braking efficiency and overall safety.

Couplemate™ Superior Brake Quality

In conclusion, electric brake magnets are vital for caravan safety, and the choice between standard and off-road models, as well as the size (10″ or 12″), should be based on your specific towing needs and the types of terrain you’ll encounter.

Proper selection will help ensure a smooth and secure journey while towing your caravan.
