The Tapley meter is the most recognised international standard decelerometer,
and as such is trusted by many leading government authorities around the world
to set local brake testing standards. Results of Tapley meter tests are accepted
as evidence of braking efficiency in Courts of Law throughout the world.
For new customers we recommend that the Bowmonk Brakemeter / Dynometer is
ordered instead, but for existing customers the Tapley Brake Test Meter is still
available to order with a scale reading in either Metric or Imperial for stopping
distance. G force is always shown in %G. The vehicle being tested must be driven
at a speed of at least 15 mph (20 mph recommended).
The Tapley meter is very robust and has low maintenance costs.
Readily transportable weighing only 10kg complete with its protective casing.
Simple to operate and needs very little operator training.
The recommended recertification interval for a Tapley meter is every two years and this is carried out at low cost by us, the manufacturers.
The Tapley meter has been a recognized international standard decelerometer for almost 100 years and is certified to a standard agreed by the National Physical Laboratory in the U.K.
Results of Tapley meter tests are accepted as evidence of braking efficiency in Courts of Law throughout the world.
