Roof Rackfor any application

This professional roof rack system meets the challenge for any task

State-of-the-Art Roof Rack Basket

The AluRack is customised for all types of vehicles, ranging from normal vans with a short or long wheelbase, standard or high roof, pickups, trucks and other commercial vehicles.
The aerodynamic aluminium roof rack offers increased efficiency and safety by perfectly adapting to the shape of the roof, also giving the vehicle a dynamic look. Crossbars are available in two variants: Standard, and a heavy duty edition to carry even heavier loads without generating driving noise. The AluRack also offers a wide range of useful accessories.

Ergonomically the best solution for mounting ladders on roof racks

Multifunctional accessories for every purpose

Environmentally friendly: 100% recyclable materials

Corrosion-free anodised surface - resists all weather conditions

Modern design, creating a dynamic look. Uses pre existing mounting points

Very light with a dead weight of less than 20 to 30 kg (depending on vehicle), it is about 30 % lighter than a comparable steel rack

The aerodynamic shape reduces fuel consumption, wear and tear and generates hardly any driving noise.

The aluminium construction (maximum 35 % of the permissible roof load) allows a higher payload to be carried on the carrier

The loading tube and the S-Clamp quick-locking system allow quick and safe transport of ladders and equipment

Mounting

The AluRack is mounted on the roof to pre-existing mounting points. Additional adapter rails can be used optionally to withstand higher impact forces. Ideal for leasing fleets.

AluRack Crash Test

The AluRack has successfully completed a dynamic city crash test (according to ISO 11154, Annex E) at TÜV SÜD in the Czech Republic. The roof rack was mounted on the roof of a van and loaded with the maximum permissible load of 181 kg (dead weight of the roof rack 19 kg). At a speed of 18 km/h, a frontal impact occurred with the test sled. The load and the roof rack remained unchanged in their positions on the roof during this impact – proofing the high safety standards.

AluRack Durability Test

As part of a test by Flanders' Drive, the durability of the AluRack (width 1650 mm) was tested at time-lapse speed on a hydraulic test rig with uniaxially applied force. The test consisted of two parts: In the first part, a transporter with accelerometers was driven over a test track. In the second part, the result of the vibrations measured in the test was converted into signals that controlled a hydraulic test unit on which the AluRack was mounted. The function of the Alu-Rack with a distributed payload of 150 kg was maintained during the entire duration of the durability test.

AluRack Construction

Heavy Duty Edition

While maintaining the aerodynamic shape, the load capacity is increased by even stronger cross beams. The low weight in combination with the structural stability makes it possible to use, or even exceed, the maximum roof load of the vehicles, while also reducing driving noise.

AluRack Pickup

die flexibelste Dachträgerlösung für Pickups auf dem Markt

The patented construction is mounted on the tail lift, no drilling work required. The lightweight yet robust design optimises the load capacity of any pickup.

  1. Lightweight aluminium construction - saves fuel consumption
  2. Wide range of optional accessories to help with loading and unloading
  3. No drilling work required
  4. Load stops can be easily moved and are equipped with a hook to serve as lashing points
  5. Non-slip rubber surface crossbars
  6. Mounting kits for pickups with an installed canopy are available

The Essential Roof Rack Solution

The AluBar roof rack consists of two crossbars, rails and mounting material. Available for all types of vehicles, size and application. Depending on the vehicle length, additional crossbars can be mounted on the rails. A variety of add-ons are offered, to fit specific requirements.

AluBar Features

  1. Rails follow the roofs contour and are mounted on pre existing mounting points
  2. Adjustable mounting system for perfect positioning
  3. Rubber surfaces and load stops keep the load in a fixed position (additional lashing belts required)
  4. Lashing straps or belts are required to ensure safe transportation of the loaded cargo

Loading tube mounting brackets to attach to the crossbars

Rear loading rollerEasy to mount on the rear end of the roof rack, the loading roller makes loading and unloading of long objects much easier

Aluminium loading tubeLockable loading tube on both sides (2-5 m long, 125 mm cross-section)

Platform panelsRibbed aluminium profiles that can be mounted to the cross bars to form a loading platform

Padlockto protect accessories like a ladder from theft

S-Clampunique roof ladder holder

Load stopsLoad stops are used to secure the payload quickly and safely onto the roof. They are attached to the rail with slot nuts.

S-Clamp

The S-Clamp enables easy and efficient transport of lightweight stepladders and extension ladders on vehicles with low roofs. Reducing the duration of loading and unloading a ladder from an average of 240 seconds (4 minutes) to 20 seconds, i.e. by 80 %.

The ladder is secured with a gas spring-assisted hook. The front hook helps the user to position the ladder on the roof rack. By operating the handle, the rear hook sets up and fixes the ladder securely for transport. No straps or lashing straps are required. The ladder can be secured with a padlock if necessary.
