Brownings Garage

Brownings Garage

Brownings Garage in Angel, Islington was started in 1910 by Cyril Browning who was a metal worker by trade. The business initially repaired motorbike frames that were all trellis designs and the tubes and joints were prone to kinking and cracking in crashes. The bikes were stripped, the frame tubes were straightened with sand, a plank with a hole in it and a small fire. The joints were then re-welded and the bikes reassembled.

Henry Brown was a young mechanic for Mr. Browning and was sent to Leyland to build tanks for the war effort. By the time the war was over Cyril Browning had cancer and Henry took over the garage in around 1947. It is now run by the third generation of the Brown family.

The move to car repair started in the 1920’s and a single home made ramp was installed. The garage has grown to 5 bays with a major refurbishment happening in  2009/10. The nature of the car park and the type of power units and electronics have changed enormously in a short time and the garage will be inside the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) in 2020

Political will and technical development into hybrid, electric and ultra lean burn petrol engines will be major factors into which areas of ongoing tooling and training are undertaken in the medium term.  Long term the transportation in London will be cleaner, faster and probably more automated.

Brownings Garage are ready for the challenge, we can see that specialization will play a larger part in the survival of independent workshops in the future.

The Offer

 Air Conditioning / Climate Control

 

Most modern vehicles come with Air Conditioning / Climate Control as standard. A good system will lose 10-15% of its refrigerant every year, (manufacturers release new cars only 75-80% filled to reduce costs).

Service intervals for AC are recommended every 3 years as ‘compressibles’ including water vapor enter the system, this reduces the efficiency and slowly corrodes the delicate valves, contaminates the receiver dryer and evaporator and destroys the clean environment that allows the system to operate up to around 15 bar pressure. (An average tyre runs around 2 bar).

Our AC service uses Nitrogen (OFN) to test for system leaks after refrigerant (R134a) recovery and if there are no external leaks found the correct amount of PAG oil, leak detection dye and refrigerant is then added. High and low side pressures are checked to confirm adequate cooling of the condenser is present and the compressor is working correctly.
