Pailton, a drag link manufacturer that understands the needs of the commercial vehicle

The drag link is a major component in the steering system of all commercial vehicles, and as such needs to be reliable, robust and hard-wearing.  A worn drag link can severely affect the handling and steering of the vehicle. Therefore, a drag link manufacturer must ensure that their components are able to stand up to the particular challenges of each individual vehicle.

Many commercial vehicles, such as military and those used on building sites, will need to offer superb handling under whilst being driven on rough or difficult terrain.  By contrast a fire-engine or ambulance needs responsive and safe steering when driving at high speeds to an emergency.

We don’t just stop at producing a high quality steering component.  Before it is delivered to the customer, we make sure that it is rigorously tested so that we know that it is up to the job it was designed for. We put our components through tests that simulate 500,000 miles of driving in only 10 days.  Only when we are satisfied that the product is fit for purpose will it be delivered to the customer.
