The rear protection bar is not only a subtle styling accessory but great at protecting the rear of the vehicle from supermarket and car park mishaps.
These bars are manufactured in Italy from a high quality 50mm stainless steel tubing which is then polished to give a mirror like shine.
You can use this bar on vehicles fitted with a rear parking sensor kit as it sits lower than the sensors on the rear bumper and is close enough not to disrupt the sensors.
Installation is simple as the bar is supplied complete with vehicle specific brackets and required fixings to mount the bar to the vehicle.
Also included are a full set of fitting instructions but you can download a copy of the instructions in pdf format using the link below.
Why do we use stainless steel?
We could use a cheap mild steel and then chrome plate it when manufacturing our bars but we don't.
Because after a year or so the bar would look unsightly when weeping rust stains appear.
In the iron/carbon mix chromium is also added that gives the steel its stainless qualities.
The chromium element stops the iron from oxidising and becoming rust (iron oxide).
Road salt used during European winters and sea salt, speed up rust formation and again gives us another good reason to use stainless steel here in the UK & in Europe where our products are sold.
Stainless steel can be exposed to the elements all year round and with a little polish now and again, can look as good as the day it came out of the packaging. This is the reason boat makers use stainless, and not mild steel.
Our stainless has a 3-year warranty, features a mirror polished chrome or black powder coated look (on some black finished items) but is in-fact more expensive, more durable, stainless steel.
Fit it once only!
