Spring Brakes

Spring Brakes, also called Maxi Brakes, have two chambers - one that acts the same as a standard brake chamber, and a second chamber that contains a very powerful mechanical spring that acts as a fail-safe should the air brake system lost air pressure. The Spring Brake also serves as a mechanical parking brake to prevent a trailer from rolling when parked on inclined surfaces.
