- Consistent stopping distance thanks to reliable performance
COUNT ON BERAL® STAY AHEAD OF THE COMPETITION
At BERAL®, we continuously develop new innovations to maintain powerful coverage of the CV market. From lab to real-life situations, BERAL® braking parts are specially designed to last longer, be more effective and most reliable. All so you can limit downtime, repair costs and ensure safety on the road at all times. As our tests show*, BERAL brake pads & discs can not only compete with current OE standards, but they also outperform competitors in the CV market. From leading-edge stopping distance to optimal wear resistance.
Copper free commercial vehicles brake pads
- A: This product meets the requirements for cadmium, chromium, lead, mercury and asbestos.
- B: This product meets the requirements for all level “A” metals as well as copper, brought down to under 5% of its content by weight.
- N: This product meets the “Zero- Copper” requirement with less than 0.5% of its weight made up of copper.
BERAL® is copper free. We were among the first manufacturers to offer copper free brake pads to customers for commercial vehicles. These copper free brake pads have achieved the N-leaf mark, indicating they contain less than 0.5% copper. By introducing the N-leaf mark into our commercial vehicles, we have achieved the best technologies and are in line with the strictest regulations. As such, BERAL is compliant with both US laws that as of January 2021 requires level B (less than 5% copper) and as of January 2025 requires level N (less than 0.5% copper).

When it comes to commercial vehicles, the safety of drivers and their cargo is a top priority. Even though brakes are arguably the most safety-critical component on any vehicle, they are also vulnerable to faults resulting from improper fitment. That is why BERAL® brings to market the innovative pad retaining system ProTec S® that Knorr-Bremse® has developed in conjunction with the foremost European commercial vehicle manufacturers. This clever technology ensures a permanent, welded connection between the spring and the brake pad backplate.
