RPB

Due to the rear overhang and vehicle body shape obstructing visibility for many Vans and 4×4 wagons and dual cab utes, rear quarter panels and factory bumper bars are very susceptible to damage, particularly when manoeuvring in the close confines of urban environments.

There’s no better way to protect the rear of your vehicle than with SmartBar’s Rear Protection Bar (RPB). Like the rest of our range, our rear protection equipment is manufactured in South Australia to extremely high standards and is recognised to provide all the same levels of vehicle, occupant and pedestrian safety.

Hollow, Single Body Construction

The extra strong, one-piece, hollow bodied bull bar has the unique ability to flex, absorb and disperse impact energy forces, then return back to the original shape. It minimises the risk of damage to panel work resulting from an impact, extending the expected life span of the product, regardless of conditions.

Parking Sensor Compatible

The original rear bumper / factory step parking sensors are relocated into the Rear Protection Bar, a Parking sensor compatible bar is required for this.

High rated safe working vertical load

Utilising advanced roto-moulding design and manufacturing practices, the RPB is inherently robust and incredibly strong. Undulating contours and ribbing enable a safe working vertical load rating of 200kg.

High Grip, moulded-in tread pattern

The top surface on the RPB features a high grip tread pattern which has been moulded into the part, assisting with foot friction and providing a safer stepping surface when entering the rear of the vehicle. Drainage channels have also been integrated to ensure the top surface will not catch or pool water.

Maintains vehicle onboard safety systems

The RPB has been purposefully designed to integrate all native vehicle sensors and accomodate the onboard safety systems so that they function as intended without inference. In vehicle testing of our RPB confirmed that it does not adversely effect these systems, while still functioning as a protective device.

Durable Materials

The characteristics of the specifically blended material combined with the manufacturing process results in a product with high levels of resistance to environmental factors such as salt, sun, stone chips and rust. The specially blended material used in its construction is also highly UV resistant; enabling it to be used in any environment.

SmartBar’s Rear Protection Bar is an over bumper bar which offers outstanding vehicle protection. It perfectly complements the design and shape of the vehicle, maintains all of the factory accessories and all the while helps protect vehicle panels in the event of reversing collisions.

More than just a rear bumper bar or a rear step, it has already won several design awards in recognition for the levels of innovation it exhibits and its superior demonstrable performance. Manufactured from the same flexible, durable polyethylene material as the rest of the SmartBar range it embodies all the same characteristics which provide the unparalleled levels of vehicle and occupant protection without compromising pedestrian safety. The protection provided by the RPB reduces expensive panel repairs and it does all this at a fraction of the weight of any factory step or metal based alternative.

The Rear Protection Bar combines SmartBar’s proven class leading design, engineering and cutting edge manufacturing without a compromise in approach to protection and performance. Read more about our safety standards and our most recent Design Award.
