Here’s Why Western Australian Drivers Need Bullbars
A bullbar is installed on the front end of your vehicle to protect it from collision damage. Surveys commissioned by councils and industry peak-bodies conclude that fitting frontal protection equipment to your vehicle can significantly heighten the safety of passengers in the case of animal collision. So, let’s take a look at why all WA drivers need bullbars.
Protection Against Animal Collisions
It’s not uncommon to have a close call with a kangaroo or other wild animal when you’re driving in Western Australia. If the worst happens, and you do hit an animal, the impact can leave your vehicle damaged. It may also disable your car, resulting in you and your passengers being stranded in the middle of nowhere. This is where a bullbar comes into its own. It protects the front portion of your vehicle so that the chances of damage are minimized.
Rough roads are a fact of life when you live in WA. You know the type – sticks and rocks everywhere. It’s an unfortunate fact that all these pieces of debris have the uncanny knack of working their way into strange places on or in your vehicle. When you have a robust bullbar fitted, it helps give you the peace of mind that your car will be more protected when you’re driving.
Other reasons for fitting a bull bar include as a winch mounting platform, for other vehicle recovery, to mount auxiliary lighting and for communication equipment mounting.
The key to a great bullbar is its strength. Here, at Irvin Bullbars we design and manufacture only the strongest bullbars, nudge bars and roo bars to provide lasting protection to your vehicle. Our bullbars are created with continuous sections of alloy tubing and channel. Less welding means more strength which means greater protection for you and your passengers. All our bullbars benefit from additional central pipes to prevent radiator damage and to minimize animal penetration.
