Utilising advanced design and manufacturing techniques the bar has been completely remodelled to incorporate proven new technologies. The most visible changes featured are LED lights, gas strut assistance to carrier arms and advanced finishing techniques.
Under the surface, accurate laser cutting of components and modern industrial robotic welding machines, zincing and powder coating process guarantee superb shaping, assembly and finishing.
LED signal lights bring the expected long life and low power benefits of LED technology but also incorporate bright white reversing lights on both sides of the bar. The lights are fully sealed against both weather and dust and highly resistant to damage from vibration.
Less obvious to the eye, though a fabulous innovation, is the addition of gas struts to assist the opening and holding open of the carrier arms when loaded with heavy spare wheels or full jerry cans. Once fully open the carrier is held open by the gas struts. A manual lock can be engaged if on very steep ground.
And to improve both safety and comfort the carrier arm locking handles are rubber dipped to give an overall non-slip finish and give un-gloved hands protection from cold, heat and uncomfortable handle edges.
Finished with zinc electroplating for corrosion protection and powder coated in black the bar matches in with the styling of the Discovery and will make a valuable investment for the lifetime of the vehicle.
Accessories available include – UHF/HF Aerial bracket, Hi lift Jack Bracket, Telescopic Work Light Bracket, Jerry Can and Spare Wheel carriers.
