Carrier bars constitute the main system for the apparatus to be attached to the roof of the vehicle. All equipment such as roof racks, cross bars, roof rails, truck roor rack, car roof rack, bicycle carriers, ski and snowboard carriers are connected to the vehicle by means of carrier bars.

Carrier bars are specially produced for each vehicle. Some vehicles have side bars, while others have mounting points on the roof or between the door. And each of these is a different system. Carrier bars are the most important part and must hold the vehicle safely. Make sure that the product you will purchase is suitable for your vehicle (The vehicle model is specified in the package).

Can the carrier bars damage my vehicle?
Of course it is possible. Therefore, it must be specially produced for the vehicle. They should be produced by calculating the slope, width and keel in the vehicles and testing them over and over. The parts touching the vehicle should be covered with silicon so that friction and rust do not damage the vehicle. Therefore, the carrier bars should be chosen carefully.

Roof racks provide additional loading space in our vehicle. They are attached to the vehicle via carrier bars and provide additional storage from 300 liters to 600 liters. Thus, they save us from traveling with loads and getting stuck in the vehicle.

Carrier bars, not roof racks, are specific to the vehicle. However, if you attach a very long model to a small sedan, it will not look nice and aesthetic. A more suitable size model will also provide eye aesthetics.

Will the roof racks fly off my vehicle roof?
Here, the importance of quality brands emerges. We encounter customers who fly roof luggage while traveling at 60 km/h. And this error can cause fatal accidents. Staying away from untested products (wind, oscillation, rain, speed and durability) will be accurate for you and the vehicles coming behind you.

Should the roof rack be opened from the back or from the side?
The opening direction of roof racks is related to their size. In fact, it is very advantageous in terms of both security and loading. A rear-opening roof rack will be more resistant to wind as its hinges are at the front and will give the opportunity to load from both sides. However, it is possible to open doors up to a maximum length of 150 cm from behind. Longer roof racks are opened from the side and secured with a central locking system (locks from 2 or 3 points with a special mechanism when the key works from a single point).

Roof racks are made of ABS or PMMA plastic. It is ensured that it is not affected by hot and cold by adding Ultraviolet impermeability materials. If your roof rack changes color, it is lacking UV and very susceptible to breakage
