Thick brake disc?

Hello everyone, I'm looking for a brake disc which has more than 2mm thickness. Do you know any products like that? Also, I'm looking for its caliper. I have been searching for it for days but I couldn't find. Thanks for your help.

Do up a drawing and contact a machine shop to get what you want. It can be done - it just hasn't yet.

End goal? Better stopping power? Go bigger. Tried motorcycle/moped stuff?

super discs

Personally I would go to a bigger diameter standard disc. But the new Electric bikes have quite a bit stouter discs owing to their greater weight. You could look into those.
