Brake Heat Shields
Hard Brakes provides several different series of brake heat shield technologies to meet every racer's needs, from the budget-conscious casual racer up to the top tier race teams. Not every series is available for every application.
Ventilated Titanium Series (Model # TS-V-xxxx)
Ventilated Titanium Series heat shields are our revolutionary new patent-pending technology that uses a multilayer design with overlapping cross ventilation channels to provide air flows to the critical boundary between the brake pad and caliper piston. The unique multi-layer air channel design allows excessive heat to be vented away from the boundary even under high pressure hard braking. It also allows cooling air to flow quickly into the boundary when the brakes are released, so that you get more effective cooling between braking zones. The result is that your ventilated heat shields act as a heat pump, using the heat generated by the friction of your brakes to force out hot air and draw in cooler air. This design is particularly effective when used in conjuction with brake cooling ducts that direct air into the caliper system, as they allow the cooling air to go straight into the area of the caliper piston that most needs it. Our Ventilated Titanium Series heat shields are made from top grade 6AL-4V titanium alloy.
Titanium Series (Model # TS-T-xxxx)
Titanium Series heat shields provide excellent thermal protection in a thin, solid format that will usually fit even with new pads or rotors. They are made from top grade 6AL-4V titanium alloy to provide the best resistance to heat transfer, several times better than stainless steel, 6 times better than regular steel, and 30 times better than aluminum. Hard Brakes offers Titanium Series heat shields in a range of thicknesses to meet your individual requirements.
Stainless Steel Series (Model # TS-S-xxxx)
Stainless Steel Series heat shields provide superior thermal protection in a slightly thicker format than our Titanium Series, but at a lower cost. Our Stainless Steel Series heat shields are made from 304 Grade SS to provide excellent low thermal conductivity. Roughly speaking, a 1.0mm Stainless Series heat shield provides the same thermal protection as a 0.5mm Titanium Series heat shield, but at a lower cost. For some applications, we also offer a much thicker (3-4mm) version of this shield that also works as a spacer when pads become severely worn. This model is popular with budget racers, and for races where the use of titanium components is not allowed by the organizers.
