The Irvin Difference #1
Superior Strength

Irvin Bullbars prides itself on the strength of the products we design and manufacture. Strength is important because in the event of an accident or collision, strength could be the difference between life or death.

Unlike many inferior overseas knock-offs, All our bullbars, roo bars and nudge bars are built to last and protect your vehicle.

The superior strength of the Irvin Bullbar products is derived from the:

  • Continuous sections of channel and tubing.  This means less welding is required which gives the VFPS greater strength.
  • High Density extruded channel and tubing used in manufacturing.
  • Increased thickness of the aluminium.
  • Additional central pipes to restrict animal penetration and prevent radiator damage.

The Irvin Difference #4
Safety Testing / Airbag Compatibility

Each of our VFPS’s undergoes rigorous airbag safety checks formulated by specialist engineers at Monash University and are tested at an independent Automotive Safety Engineering company to ensure all our products:

  • Have airbag compatibility through impact testing.
  • Are all within the maximum allowable crumpling deceleration for a frontal protection bar.
  • Where relevant, truck VFPS are fitted with Frontal underrun protection to improve the safety of other vehicles if involved in a collision.

Where applicable, Irvin Bullbar nudgebars, roobars and bullbars are tested to comply with the Australian Driving Regulation 69 (ADR69) vehicle occupant safety rule to ensure they do NOT affect the deployment timing of airbags.

Although the ADR69 makes no mention of frontal protection bars. A draft standard has been proposed in relation to occupant safety, but as a responsible manufacturer, we design our products so that they will not affect the correct operation of the airbag or the vehicle manufacturers preset crumple rate.
