Is an aluminum bar strong enough to protect from wildlife collisions?
Our bumpers will protect you and your truck from wildlife. While strength provides rigidity, our product’s effectiveness is achieved by engineering the proper absorption and disbursement of energy.
Why do you use aluminum?
Aluminum is an ideal metal for this application. It allows us to build a strong product and keep the weight to a minimum. Aluminum is also elastic, which means that under extreme strain, such as striking an animal at high speed, it tends to absorb the shock and bend as opposed to breaking. The result is a crush zone in front of your truck, protecting the vital engine components housed inches away.
How can an aluminum bar work so well?
There are three major factors, which make our protection bar so effective; patent pending designs, highest quality materials, and quality workmanship.
