Safeline Brake Pads Products
E-Mark and SABS certified
Safeline is the only brake pad in South Africa to be both
E-Mark and SABS certified.
Selected Safeline part numbers include:

  • Wear sensors, which alert a driver when their brake pads need replacing
  • Accessory kits (shims/clips).
A friction layer on the surface of our brake pads, known as ‘Safetrac’, provides instant friction for faster bedding-in. When bedding-in your new Safeline brake pads, the Safetrac layer transfers onto the brake rotor which ensures smoother brake operation and improved braking power.
Safetrac benefits the bedding-in process which provides:

  • Enhanced and long-lasting braking performance
  • Reduced brake vibrations and squealing
  • Prevents metallic splinters during installation of new brake pads
Reasons why you should choose Safeline Brake Pads:

  • Lasts up to 2x Longer than competitor pads – saves you money
  • Stops up to 10m shorter than competitor pads
  • Reduces disc wear – helps prevent expensive replacement
  • Leaves less brake dust on rims – keeps your car looking its best
  • Enhanced stopping power – keeps you safer
  • Accessories and wear sensors (on certain part numbers)
  • Copper and asbestos-free


Safeline manufacture to the highest quality standards in an IATF 16949:2016 factory. Our brake pads are tested at an independent laboratory to SANS 20090:2010 standards.
On-going testing and monitoring ensures that we deliver quality brake pads.

Safeline Quality Assurance


Designed to the South African safety specification (VC8053), the inertia dynamometer simulates a vehicle’s gross mass and speed to conduct dynamic testing in three elements:

Safeline - Cold Performance

1) Cold Performance:

Determines the pressure sensitivity of the brake pad by measuring the rate of deceleration with incremental pressures (pedal force) from 1.5 MPa to 10 MPa at a constant speed of 80km/hr.

Safeline - Speed Sensitivity

2) Speed Sensitivity:

Measures how consistent the brake pad performs when braking from speeds of 75, 120 and 160 km/hr.

Safeline - Brake Fade

3) Brake Fade:

Measures the reduction in stopping power that occurs when the brake pad gets hot. When a brake pad temperate reaches around 450 C, deceleration must not be less than 3.5m/s2.

Safeline Brake Pads


Measures the strength of the bond between the backing plate and friction material to ensure that the brake pad friction material does not come loose from the backing plate during operation.


Measures the deflection of a brake pad under an axial load to ensure:

  • The brake pad is not too soft or spongy, giving the vehicle driver good pedal feedback.
  • The brake pad is not too hard and is elastic enough to ensure enough traction on the disc surface. Brake pads must not deflect more than 2% of their thickness at ambient temperature and not more than 5% at 400 degrees Celsius, as per the standard.


Safety is in the Safeline name, which is why our brake pads have been tested and proven to stop up to 10 metres shorter than other leading competitor brake pad brands, making Safeline your safe fitment choice. Safeline's Safetrac layer enhances the brake pad bedding-in process, ensuring that your vehicle stops quicker from the first application of your brakes, providing greater stopping power! READMORE
