Dexter Axle Launches Dexter Sway Control

ELKHART, INDIANA (July 28, 2014)

Dexter Axle, the U.S. based leading manufacturer of trailer axles and trailer brakes for over 50 years, is pleased to announce the addition of the Dexter Sway Control system. The Dexter Sway Control (DSC) system is a critical safety item to stabilize the sway of your trailer or RV by continuously monitoring trailer yaw: the side-to-side movement, left and right of the tow vehicle. The electronic system uses data collected in the event of sway to apply the brakes on the correct side of the trailer in a timely manner and with the proper braking level required based on sway conditions.

"Extensive testing comparing a trailer without a sway control device as well as with a mechanical anti-sway device to a trailer with our system, proves that Dexter Sway Control significantly reduces potentially dangerous sway," states Tim Meckstroth, VP of Engineering of Dexter Axle.

"The next generation technology detects trailer sway and applies either the left or right brakes dampening the sway much quicker than other systems that apply brakes on both sides at the same time," explains Bryan Thursby, VP of Sales and Marketing. "We are excited to offer this state-of-the-art system to our customers."

The Dexter Sway Control is available to manufacturers for installation on trailers or RVs with electric brakes. The system will also be available to Dexter’s distribution network to OEMs or for installation on pre-owned units at a service center by a qualified technician.
