Zimmermann brake discs – 50 years of OEM-quality products
The brake disc contributes to the impeccable functioning of the brake system in the car, together with the brake pads safely reducing speed and if necessary halting the car. Nowadays, modern cars are equipped with disc brakes instead of drum brakes. The pressure of the brake pads on the disc, enabling the driver to reduce speed in a safe manner, generates plenty of heat. This mechanical procedure puts the brake disc under permanent strain. Therefore, a regular check of these safety-relevant components is absolutely necessary. As they are subject to natural wear, brake discs need timely replacement, depending on driving style and strain.

The high standards required of the material and its composition as well as innovative technology and production processes form the basis for the outstanding quality standard giving the company with its base in Beelitz in East Germany (close to Potsdam) its excellent reputation. Those who prefer a sporty driving style can choose for Zimmermann's perforated brake discs. These sport brake discs reliably and safely drain moist and brake dust and effectively prevent the dreaded fading.
