From food and clothing, fuel and livestock, trucks are the lifeblood of regional and metro stock and goods movement in Australia. In 2017-18, Australian freight vehicles moved 214,789,000,000 tonne-kilometres of goods according to the ABS. In both good times and in times of crisis alike, if trucks weren’t on the road, we would never get the essential goods we all rely on. Cross country and regional truckies are a vital part of the Australian economy; basically, the importance of our truck drivers is immeasurable.
Our truckies keep Australia moving! It’s a tough job but they always manage to get things done. Contending with long periods of loneliness on the road as well as navigating difficult terrain, mechanical breakdowns and the risk of animal strikes are just some of the difficulties that are faced. At Irvin Bullbars we understand the risks of animal strikes truck drivers face when they’re travelling vast distances across this great country of ours, so we have consulted with truckies and designed, tested and manufactured strong truck bars that keep the trucks moving and the goods delivered.
Irvin Bullbars has been setting the standard with our superior quality truck bars, bull bars, roo bars and nudge bars Perth customers have come to rely on since 1976. Our truck bars are designed to comply with the frontal underrun protection criteria in mind that reduces the chance of a vehicle from going under the truck if the worst happens, so you can drive with confidence at any time of the day or night. We think you’ll be very impressed with the specifications too:
