New smart electric roll cover launched by EGR Group
EGR Group has launched the EGR RollTrac – a smart electric roll cover for dual cab utes.
EGR Group says the new EGR RollTrack is “described as the world’s best electric tonneau cover that fully integrates into a vehicle’s electrical system.”
The cover features a lightly textured black powder coat, is both water resistant and scratch resistant, and boasts a host of design features to keep cargo safe and secure from the harsh conditions in Australia.
EGR RollTrac has reportedly been tested in extreme conditions to OEM standards to deliver what EGR Group calls the best all-weather performance. It features an innovative aluminium interlocking slat system that prevents water from penetrating and is flush mounted to the tailgate panel to ensure any surface water is immediately displaced.
The same interlocking slat system design is also what gives the tonneau cover its “incredible” strength, preventing it from being slashed or cut.
EGR Group explains the cover also locks in the vehicle tailgate via claw hook style catches, affording users “the best security in the market” while an anti-pinch feature prevents anything from being caught between the cover and the tailgate.
EGR Group says this new product is the result of more than three years of Research and Development and has been built to the same exacting standards shared by leading automotive manufacturers.
It states the EGR RollTrac integrates with remote central locking, so a separate key is not required. Onboard buttons are neatly integrated into the rear corner on both side rails so that the cover can be opened/closed from either side of the vehicle.
The cover only works when the vehicle is unlocked, and a smart ECU-controlled operation is pre-programmed to the vehicle and includes onboard fail safes to prevent using valuable energy if the vehicle battery is running low. A manual override feature is included, and an automatic internal LED light provides visibility in the rear in poor lighting conditions.
EGR Group General Manager – Sales and Marketing, Noel O’Malley, believes the roll top tonneau cover is the world’s best.
“We’ve looked at all of the issues that dual cab owners have with ‘traditional’ tonneau covers and designed and innovated our way around them,” Noel said.
“We know drivers are principally concerned about safety/security and water ingress, and the costs of stolen tools or damaged equipment, and so our interlocking slat system addresses these issues and more.
“We know they need to be tough, but look good, and the black powder finish looks stylish enough to complement any vehicle.”
