Someone who likes to pick up off-road trips would have heard about bull bars. They are an important addition to your vehicle, as it adds a protective layer to your vehicle. Although they are an important addition to the vehicle, there are certain apprehensions surrounding usability. In certain cases, these bars have proven to be fatal.

In this blog, we try to answer all the questions related to bull bars and their installation.

What Is A Bull Bar?

A bull bar is attached at the front of the vehicle to prevent any accidental collision. It is considered an integral piece of safety equipment, and hence most Australian motorists prefer it for their vehicles.  These are made from plastic, steel, or aluminum based on the car and the requirement. Of these, aluminum and steel are considered to be the sturdiest of the options. Steel bull bars put a huge extra load on the suspension and front axle. Motorists then start looking for other alternatives, like the aluminum bull bars. The latter were light in weight and are sturdy and hence is a popular choice now.

Key Points To Consider When Installing Bull Bars

  • The first thing that you need to consider is whether or not you need these bars. If you regularly travel to areas where animals strike or you are planning an off-road trip, then you must install these.
  • Choose an environment-friendly bull bar rather than choosing an aggressively designed bull bar. This should not disturb the environment around by emitting substances.
  • It’s always good to use a lightweight material rather than the ones that put extra load on your vehicle. You need to choose a sturdy material as lightweight ones are also strong.
  • The mounting points decide the strength of the bull bar on the vehicle where it is added.
  • You also need to stick to the legal compliances with the bull bar installation.
  • Make sure that when you are buying a bull bar, it should be certified and should not clash with the Australian Design Rules and vehicle standards. Also, you can find manufacturers who provide a certificate that assures that the bull bar won’t impact the crashworthiness.
  • Beware of the dealers who sell car accessories that are not approved. Hence, you must always check the accreditation and license of the car accessories seller.

Legal Requirements For Bull Bars

As we have mentioned above, there are certain legal implications that one needs to adhere to if they want to install a bull bar. You cannot neglect those terms.

Here are a few of them:

  • The design of the bull bar should be such that it doesn’t impact the safety of the vehicle.
  • The vehicles that are manufactured to comply with Australian Design Rules 69 and/or 73, the bull bars should.
  • 4WD vehicles have a limited front axle load capacity, and so when you add a bar, the load should not exceed the legal axle loading. This becomes especially important if you are installing a heavily constructed bull bar.
  • The bull bar manufacturer should show that it doesn’t affect the critical airbag timing, or it should not adversely affect the ADRs’ compliance.
  • It should not hinder the vision of the driver or the viewing angles of lights. In case the lights get affected, then additional lights must be added.
  • The bull bar must be fitted securely and should not protect further from the front of the vehicle than the required attachment.
  • It should be designed to reduce the probability of injury to the pedestrians, and external protrusion should not be sharp.
