Brake Hoses are the latest addition to DBA’s comprehensive range of STREET SERIES hydraulic brake products.
As part of DBA’s commitment to maintaining its leadership in braking technology, the company is further expanding its range of OE-replacement and upgrade brake components under its STREET SERIES label. The latest release consists of a series of brake hoses. Initially featuring nearly 500 part numbers covering a multiple of applications, DBA is continuing to roll out additional items over the coming months and into the future.
Having led the market in rotor technology for many decades, DBA’s transition to a premium ‘one stop shop’ for anything wheel end is on full display this year, resulting in complete braking solution offers for the customer. Known for accurate and comprehensive parts cataloguing, DBA has applied the same stringent approach to its new brake hose range by linking it to all major Australian and international industry database formats.
Brake hoses are a critical component within a vehicle’s braking system, responsible for carrying the fluid pressure from the brake pedal to the brake cylinder. DBA believes there must be no compromise in quality and performance when it comes to safety relevant vehicle components. So, whilst intended as OE replacement products, DBA brake hoses come with a range of technological and quality features that set them apart from other brands.
DBA brake hoses are made from extra durable EPDM rubber. All end fittings are made from high-grade steel and electroplated with a zinc coating, delivering superior corrosion and rust resistance. Banjo end fittings are supplied with copper washers for better sealing properties.
The brake hose manufacturing process culminates in extensive quality and durability testing. Interesting to note that DBA’s test criteria by far exceed those of other brands in the market! DBA products surpass SAE International standards for durability by up to 400% (nominally up to 200 hours). They are tested to ensure a burst pressure rating of 10,000psi (against most competitor products at 4,000psi), and a tensile strength of 560lb.
The hose volumetric expansion is approx. 60% lower than SAE International requirements (DBA 0.36 – 0.54cc/m vs. 1.08 – 1.38cc/m at equal test pressures). Lower volumetric expansion aids the speed of fluid transfer when braking, hence reducing braking distance.
As a result of DBA’s advanced manufacturing processes and its product quality, the hoses far exceed standards set by the Department of Transport (DOT), the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS 106) and SAE J1401 standards as well as those of many competitors, giving the customer the extra peace of mind at a competitive cost.
Each DBA brake hose, where applicable, is supplied with brackets, moulded plastic guards, and wire clips for ease of installation. All DBA brake hoses come in easy-to-store, straight plastic sleeves, to eliminate material fatigue from rubber being bent inside the packaging. All hoses feature the DBA logo imprinted on the rubber part for easy identification.
