Wheel Clamps

Johnson Wheel Clamps and Wheel Brakes act directly on the wheel side flanges of rail mounted equipment. They can be fail safe, spring applied, or pressure applied. Wheel clamps are intended for emergency stopping and holding, and have hardened serrated shoes. Wheel brakes are similar to caliper brakes and are used for dynamic stopping and holding. A toggle linkage compensates for lining wear to provide constant braking force.
