S+S Roof Bar
A big moment for us here at S+S and a fair few years in the pipeline, a product that we are proud to release not only due its physical form but also the journey it's taken us on, an opportunity to delve into ethical and sustainable production. While not necessarily being the most cost effective production method this is something we have deliberately put into action as we become more aware of how we consume, produce and track our carbon footprint. It is our duty to you to stand true to our founding principles. Producing innovative products with a keen eye on our environment. We are proud to be working within these parameters while producing our very own roof bar kit. We took away rather than added, and worked closer to home in all senses. The result; a light, strong, low slung, yet functional product with a long life expectancy and a guilt free production process.
A nod to the traditional commercial van, where functionality over fashion prevails, our vision did away with the longitudinal rails and utilised a simple bracket and bar setup. Strong textured steel for the legs and extruded aluminium for the bars. Hardy and raw yet low-key and elegant. The bolts and hardware come from the marine industry, where they'd more commonly be found fastening hardware to the deck of the boat for a harsh life at sea, all marine grade stainless and all designed to pass the test of time.
We have designed this product to naturally work in harmony with all our other products, sitting directly over our awning C channels and fitting with our roof bar pads and other roof related accessories. While we have designed this kit and numerous other products around the T5 / T6 platform we do consider this, along with our other products fairly universal. If you don't have a T5 chassis and the roof of your vehicle isn't very 'domed' and has a thread insert for a bolt there is a good chance this kit will fit. If in doubt probably best to shoot a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
We're stoked to be throwing in our purpose built Aero pads too. Essential for hauling oversized accessories that don't quite fit inside the van. More aerodynamic than traditional pads and with our High Density foam, these Aero pads are a whole lot more thought out than traditional pads. Transport your surfboards, Sups, Kayaks and anything else that you can't squeeze in the van with these 18-inch wide rack pads with upper padding and a sleek, oversized hook-and-loop closure holding them snuggly in place. Enhanced economy and significantly reduced windage and noise.
