Air brakes or compressed air brake systems are traditionally fitted to large commercial vehicles. These vehicles come in many different configurations. Some systems are exclusively air operated and others use a combination of air and hydraulic systems. Air brakes are used instead of hydraulic brakes which are regularly used on light commercial vehicles and passenger vehicles. Air brakes are preferred for use on heavy commercial vehicles due to their high level of reliability. There are many advantages with using air brakes which makes them preferable for heavy commercial vehicles including increased safety, air brakes are less likely to fail when leaks occur.
