Machined in our UK factory from Aerospace grade aluminium for strength and durability, the Girling calipers are silver anodised to prevent corrosion.
The pistons and brake pad pins are made from high grade Stainless Steel to prevent corrosion and ensure a long life of faultless operation.
High quality, modern Caparo fluid and dust seals complete the assembly.
The calipers are fastened together with Holokrome Geomet bolts certified to grade 12.9. These special bolts are imported from the USA to avoid the issues of hydrogen embrittlement (Standard 10.9 or 12.9 bolts can be susceptible to hydrogen embrittlement and fail in service - not a nice experience!).
Our kits are supplied with Copper/Nickel Alloy hard lines with Brass fittings.
Standard Girling or Mintex pads are supplied with the kit, which can be upgraded to 1144 compound for fast road use if desired.
Every caliper is tested individually for leaks and a test certificate is produced upon completion. We can trace each caliper all the way through assembly and production back to the initial material production.
We carry out extensive testing of our calipers using 3d modelling techniques, destructive testing and on-car performance testing to ensure optimal performance.

Our calipers are designed to be a straight bolt-on replacement for your existing brakes with no modification to your vehicle. However please bear in mind that car production decades ago was far less consistent than today’s standards and minor differences are often found in classic vehicles.
