MILFORD’S CARGO BARRIERS SAVE LIVES
Dividing the passenger and cargo areas of a vehicle, Milford’s Cargo Barriers shield occupants from unrestrained items and absorb the impact of loose items
When loaded in the rear of the vehicle, everyday 4×4 items such as eskies, tents and luggage can potentially cause significant damage if the vehicle is involved in sudden braking, an accident or a roll over.
Loads do not need to be large and heavy to be hazardous, as rapid deceleration can increase the effective mass of an object by up to 20 times its actual weight.
This means that a suitcase weighing 23kg, packed hard up against the seat, can strike with the force of a large motorcycle.
Those behind the Milford Cargo Barrier say it is the most effective way to protect occupants from these dangers and that it has been proven to save lives over and over again.
Dividing the passenger and cargo areas of a vehicle, Milford’s Cargo Barriers shield occupants from unrestrained items and absorb the impact of loose items.
To maximise your protection, it is also critical that items are packed into the vehicle correctly.
Milford Auto suggests you ensure large heavy items are placed as close to the floor as possible and right up against the cargo barrier, leaving room up higher and further back for lighter, smaller items. This will help reduce the collision mass of each item in the event of an accident, it says.
Each and every Milford Cargo Barrier is a vehicle specific solution; tested and rated to the Australian/New Zealand Standards AS/NZS 4034.1, which is considered to be the most stringent restraint Standard worldwide.
Featuring superior strength reinforcements, a heavy duty mesh construction and patented load absorption mounting straps, Milford’s Cargo Barriers are available in both single and dual position and are securely held in place using Milford’s hand operated Milbolts. All Milford Cargo Barriers are covered by an industry leading Lifetime Warranty.
