STRENGTH MEETS STYLE

Fully-welded from extruded aluminium with a cross beam design, the BASE Rack has no requirement for a supporting subframe and exerts no flex under load. Each internal and perimeter beam is constructed from a single seamless extruded aluminium box piece with internal bracing for added strength.

The superior strength properties is what has allowed such close mounting to the vehicle’s roofline.

STRONG

The BASE Rack is manufactured from extruded aluminium beams. To further increase each beam’s rigidity, an additional aluminium bracing has been introduced which runs the entire length of each and every perimeter and internal cross-section.

Unique in design, the BASE Rack runs its beams horizontally instead of laterally, resulting in maximum strength and rigidity. Its strength omits the need of a sub-framing allowing the rack to sit lower for a sleeker finish.

WHAT ABOUT WIND NOISE?

Not only is it a strong rack, it’s a quiet one!

During the design process, the ARB’s team of engineers undertook extensive testing when it came to the concept of running the internal beams perpendicular to the vehicle. This has taken away concern of increased wind noise, as it was found that not only is the BASE rack nice and strong – it’s also quiet!

The wind noise testing revealed that the majority of cabin noise from roof racks comes from only the very front perimeter cross-section, and this was very easily overcome with a formed wind-deflector which mounts on the underside of the rack on wagons with blade mounts.

The result? A very comfortable and quiet roof rack experience!

LOW-PROFILE

A one-piece, fully welded platform rack fitted to a range of low-profile blade mounts, the BASE Rack provides improved access into low clearance areas, all the while looking sleek on the roof of your pride and joy!

UNIQUE DOVETAIL DESIGN

By incorporating a dovetail extrusion around both the full perimeter and along each edge of the internal beams, the BASE Rack provides endless mounting and attachment options.

Side mounting also frees up more uninterrupted cargo space along the top of each internal and external beam.

CABLES BE GONE

Nothing ruins the sleek look like metres of electrical cable. Yet another advantage of the aluminium extruded beam design is that electrical cabling can be fed in either through the removable corner caps or via the capped access points available on the inner surface of the side perimeter beams. Additional holes can easily be introduced along the perimeter beams wherever you are mounting your work or driving lights.
