A word from Fred Gerling: New Bogie Brake Technology
Sunbury, Ohio, January 23rd, 2015
Fred Gerling here, I wanted to take a minute to announce that one of our favorite clients, Dome Productions of Canada, has contracted to have G&A integrate a bogie system on their new trailer, ordered from G&A to include Disk Breaks.
Some of you, who have depended upon disk brakes to get you out of trouble for over the past 20 years, may be asking, what is the big deal with this new system?
This has not been done before and although a topic of much discussion with our broadcast clients for the past 4 years, Dome finally elected to be first and go for it! This is a huge move to save weight and is quite an investment in this technology that controls an $8M Broadcast Trailer, should the worst happen.
These brakes will be on a pair of 22,500 GVWR axle sets, to be installed under the new Gerling and Associates Remote Television Production Trailer for Dome Productions.
