When it comes to towing your trailer there is nothing as important as your safety; having the appropriate braking system fitted to your trailer is vital. When buying a trailer you must consider not just the weight of what is going on/in the trailer but the total weight of both the trailer and its load. This combined total weight assists in determining what type of braking system is required.

For Trailers under 750kg no braking system is required

For trailers 750kg-2000kg an simple single axle system is required this can be either mechanical, hydraulic or electric drum

For trailers 2000kg and over a braking system on all wheels is required and also a brake away device, this can be done in the form of electric drums, or an electric hydraulic system such as a Hydrstar unit or Sensa-Brake.
