Four wheel drives are practical and a lot of fun! Whether you work in a rural setting, intend on touring the sights of the outback or you are a committed off-roader, it is crucial for you to have some added protection on your 4X4 in the form of a bullbar.

A bullbar is a vehicle frontal protection system that reduces the risk of damage to a vehicle and injury to its occupants. The preferred manufactured metal set up is specifically designed to provide protection to the vehicles radiator and engine components, keeping the vehicle mobile in the unfortunate event of an animal strike.

Irvin bullbars are made using an extruded one piece alloy channel section as the platform to build the bar on and all tubing is a one piece extruded hollow section. The metal tubular form is inherently strong and efficient providing a better strength to weight ratio and are used in the aerospace, boating, hydraulic and bullbar industries.  Hollow materials absorb shock more efficiently under impact as opposed to solid ones that will likely just stay in the same form causing considerable ‘transferable’ damage and possible injury.  The Irvin Bullbars superior strength bars have an industry-leading wall tubing thickness of 4.5mm

All Irvin bullbars have up to 40 hours of research and development into every type of bar manufactured, so you can be assured of their safety and strength as well as barwork being airbag compatible and ADR compliant. A 16-step quality and safety check is carried out throughout the manufacturing and fitting process on all our bars.
