Roof racks and roof bars are essential accessories for a vehicle, especially one that is used for touring and adventure trips. If you are an outdoors person and love adventure sports some of those trips that you so enjoy would not have been possible. Outfitting your vehicle with roof racks and roof bars ensures that your sporting gear is safely stowed away on the roof of your 4×4 leaving the interior space free for the passengers.
Steel and aluminium roof racks and roof bars are manufactured to suit a number of vehicle types. A roof rack is a set of bars attached to the roof of the vehicle and allows you to carry bulky items like bicycles, boats, skis, surf boards, etc. Roof bars and racks are versatile – they can be used by tradesmen and service contractors to carry items like ladders and other bulky items in their work vehicles.
A roof rack system consists of side rails, towers that attach to the rails and mounts used to secure the items to the rack. Older vehicles had gutters surrounding the roof area and the roof rack system was directly mounted onto the gutter. Modern vehicles however, no longer have gutters. So, if you decide to outfit your vehicle with roof racks and roof bars, it must be done by attaching hooks to the door frame.
Some modern vehicles come with reinforced lugs and fittings on the roof which can be used to attach a roof rack system. The latest models of SUV’s and 4x4s have a factory installed roof rack system which makes them very convenient vehicles for long distance road trips.
