BULL BAR ENGINEERING

Engineering a bull bar requires careful consideration of a number of factors to ensure it properly serves its purpose. Factors such as vehicle design, crush rate, air bag deployment, approach angles, accessory fitment, strength, weight and aesthetics are incorporated into every ARB bar before it enters production.

AIR BAG COMPATIBILITY

ARB has invested heavily in vehicle crash barrier tests to validate the performance and compliance of its air bag compatible bull bars. To ensure compatibility, ARB assesses each vehicle’s frontal crush characteristics and replicates the crush rate in the design of each air bag compatible bull bar and mounting system.

AESTHETICS & FINISH

Each ARB bull bar is specifically designed to complement the unique contours of individual vehicle models. This ensures the best possible fit, look and functionality for a particular vehicle.

All ARB bars are finished in a durable powder coat with the option to colour code.

MORE ON ARB BULL BARS

The all new Summit bar continues the ARB tradition of pioneering innovation and our relentless pursuit on quality. Summit is a modern interpretation of the renowned ARB Deluxe bar, styled to complement modern dual cab and wagon vehicles through a fresh, contemporary design language.

Building upon our proven air bag compatible bull bar mounting architecture, the Summit bar incorporates unique design features such as a 30mm edge radius on the wings and centre pan, wider press formed cover straps, 60.3mm top tubing, two piece polyethylene buffers and redesigned fog light surrounds (option for LED or halogen lights); resulting in the most visually impressive frontal protection system on the market.

Sharing many of the strength related features of a Summit bar, including ARB’s five fold upswept and tapered wing profile, the Summit Sahara bar offers a different look without sacrificing practicality.

Like the Summit bar, the Summit Sahara bar also provides a solid platform for adding other accessories such as winches, driving lights and CB antennas.

Available either with or without the polished centre tube, as well as indicators and optional fog lights (LED or halogen), the Summit Sahara bar offers owners greater flexibility in creating their desired look.

ARB commercial bull bars and winch bars are a cost effective alternative to deluxe bull bars, offering a comparable level of vehicle protection.

Incorporating many of the strength related features of a deluxe bull bar, commercial bars provide considerable frontal protection but achieve cost savings through a simplified manufacturing process.

Commercial bars are frequently specified by government and fleet operators – organisations that demand strong and functional equipment but are willing to go without some of the aesthetic characteristics.

ARB’s deluxe bull bar selection is our most extensive, with bull bar and winch bar options available for most models.

Loaded with features aimed at making remote area travel safer, whilst providing a solid base on which to add other touring essentials such as driving lights, winches and CB antennas, no other bull bar offers the same degree of vehicle integration, protection and functionality.

Features you can expect to find throughout the deluxe bull bar range include all steel construction, split pan design to facilitate airflow, fully engineered mounting systems and compatibility with modern vehicle safety features such as collision avoidance systems, parking sensors and adaptive cruise control, with fog lights optional (LED or halogen).

Sharing many of the strength related features of a Deluxe bar, including ARB’s five fold upswept and tapered wing profile, the Sahara bar offers a different look without sacrificing practicality.

Like the Deluxe bar, the Sahara bar also provides a solid platform for adding other accessories such as winches, driving lights and CB antennas.

Available either with or without the polished centre tube (on most newer models), as well as indicators and optional fog lights (LED or halogen), the Sahara bar offers owners greater flexibility in creating their desired look.

ARB’s all new Alloy bar is providing owners with a greater choice of frontal protection options for their vehicle. With styling cues designed to complement modern four wheel drive models, the Alloy bar sets the standard in protection and functionality.

The Alloy bar utilises ARB’s renowned manufacturing processes throughout, ensuring maximum strength and the highest level of aesthetic finish. Press forming further exemplifies this attention to detail, with smooth edges resulting in a bull bar that integrates with the vehicle flawlessly.

An optional winch provision allows the Alloy bar to accommodate a range of Warn, Magnum, Bushranger and Smittybilt winches, up to 10,000lbs.
