TSE Brakes' new partnership with FleetPride allows TSE to further develop and cultivate relationships in the aftermarket via a strong distribution partner, while strengthening FleetPride's supplier lineup.

TSE Brakes' premium quality spring brake, UltraLife is the ultimate brake for performance and durability, delivering the industry's longest service life. With an innovative and patented design, UltraLife features a recessed pressure plate for a shorter and more compact chamber and to help prevent power spring drift, as well as an inverted bottom housing that reduces both spring coil-to-coil contact and spring coil-to-spring housing contact. UltraLife brakes receive a pretreating and e-coating process to provide the industry's best corrosion protection.
OmniBrake offers a genuine OEM quality design for standard S-Cam drum brakes. Featuring TSE Brakes' patented welded spring housing and center sealed assembly, the OmniBrake has an all-steel housing and center section with double sealed or clamped service side options for easy-to-install serviceability. OmniBrakes undergo TSE's in-house full immersion e-coating, guaranteeing 100% coating and consistent mil thickness for excellent corrosion protection.
UltraLife and OmniBrake spring brakes are available with the enhanced TSE Severe Duty design, which features an accordion style boot cover as well as stainless steel clevis pin for increased durability and resistance to environmental concerns. ALL TSE brakes come with complete in-house testing and multi-year warranties for added quality assurance.
