ECB, We Will Never Detract From Any features of Your Vehicle
Available now from East Coast Bullbars is the ‘first to market’ release of frontal protection to suit the new MY19 SsangYong Musso.
When the new MY19 SsangYong Musso entered our R&D facility we were faced with a variety of challenges. The vehicle design incorporated a crumple zone in the front to work in conjunction with an airbag release to lessen the impact in the event of a crash. ECB’s R&D department was challenged with securely mounting the standard 8mm steel mount to the vehicle yet allow crumple zones to remain as effective with the addition of frontal protection being installed. We incorporated an expansion area in the crumple zones on the 8mm steel mounts, this design will not detract from the vehicle’s safety features. Our steel mount is tied back to the chassis and triangulated to the lower radiator support for maximum strength.
The tow point on the Musso when evaluated was found to be insufficient for a majority of towing. ECB technicians decided to develop a stronger tow point directly off the 8mm steel mount with tow points now being added to both sides of the mount. This allows for ease of access for attaching a tow strap or tie down to the vehicle.
ECB identified a weakness on the bottom of the lower radiator mounts that could risk the hardware shearing off the vehicle, thus exposing radiator and A/C condenser. ECB designed a full-length lower bash plate to protect these sensitive parts, made from high tensile 6mm alloy. This bash plate tied in the lower suspension mount and offers increased protection with directional air vents to aid in cooling the engine, and wing protection plates to strengthen the inner wheel guards. This is what ECB means by never detracting from a vehicle. So, when you leave the bitumen you know your vehicle has the level of protection intended.
ECB has over 48 years of Frontal Protection Products and we design and manufacture bullbars that are suited for purpose and will never detract from any features of the vehicle. Everything ECB manufactures is Australian Made, is ADR Compliant, and airbag compatible. This is why we can offer a lifetime warranty.*
