Irvin Bullbars have found that each individual insurance company has a differing point of view on bullbars. We suggest contacting your own insurer to check that you will be covered in the event of an accident.
It reduces stagger welds. Stagger welds are a weak point in bullbar design. For example, by using a continuous section of 48 x 4.5mm tubing in our Stage 3 bullbar, the tubing runs the full width of the bar. We even cut holes in the upright to enable the tubing to run through. We get a better, stronger weld providing more strength to your bullbar.
There are many different products in the market that will suit your requirement. We believe there are different polishes available that will suit the condition of your barwork. It’s best to talk to us directly on this one.
The bumper or any parts that are removed by Irvin Bullbars during the fitting remain the property of the customer for 2 weeks from the fitting date.

Yes, for the same reasons we use continuous sections of tubing. Our full piece extruded channel sections are hand rolled to conform to the shape of the vehicle. An extruded section is also of a higher tensile and make a great launching platform to build the bullbar on.
Irvin Bullbars believe that together with our 2-post design and the correct materials chosen, which have been copied but never matched, our alloy bullbars are good, reliable, aesthetically pleasing and the way VFPS’s should be made. The 2-post design also complies with ADR’s as to pedestrian safety.
The elastic characteristic of alloy which has been correctly tempered absorbs the sudden force of impact that is loaded onto the vehicle in the unfortunate event of an animal strike. Steel bullbars transfer this impact straight to the chassis with limited absorption.
