Avoid Bull Bars in TUV300 Top Model - Here is the reason.

Postby maddykarthik090 » 20 Jan 2017, 20:06

Are you Planning to put Bull Bar in Front of Vehicle to Prevent Bumper. Avoid as its more a harm than Safety Feature

BullBars - Myth for Safety. Avoid Bull Bars

Bullbar in Layman Language is a Metal Protection Bar sheet fitted in Front of Passenger Car to

» Protect Front Bumper, Engine, Radiator, Lights, AC Compressor etc in event of Frontal Collision

» Looks Macho and make Vehicle look Aggressive and Stylish to some

» Also comes with Myth that Bullbar are Safety Device

Here - we are Focusing on Safety Aspect -- which is rather the most important factor

Attaching a bull-bar to the front of a vehicle rather than providing Protection may infact be dangerous and fatal for Car Passengers in a Catastrophe Situation. There are 2 reasons

» Force Impact Passed on to Passengers: This is due to the fact of Science that a Bumper is designed with Crumple zone, which absorbs in mitigating the force impact to car passengers, while Bull Bars are Solid Rigid Metal and they transmit in the impact with rather much higher speed to the car passengers - causing a life threatening incident in case of Cars fitted with Bullbar

» Lead to Distortion of Data sent to ECU for Deployment of Airbags: If the Car Equipped with Airbags, then as a basic safety know how how Airbags Works. The Sensors Collect Data basis - Speed, Force Collision Impact, Angle, and Seat Belt Indicator to decode and sent to ECU which is then passed on to Airbag Inflator Unit in less than less than 1/5th of a Second and thus triggers the Airbag if required.

Having a Bull-Bar may alter in the data sensitivity w.r.t Force Collision Impact and Angle and thus may end up with a likely possibility of Non Deployment of Airbags - which were most needed in a Catstrophe Frontal Accident Collision.
When Should you attach Bull Bar in your Car

Unless the Car comes with Factory Fitted and Manufacturer approved BullBar - which is presumed to be introduced after thorough R&D including Top Notch Grade Quality and works in Sync with the Safety System of Car - for deployment of Airbags and absorbing the impact - then only you may consider choosing same -

Rest in all other cases - its a Total No - No to choose in After market Bull Bar or Universal Bull Bar Fitment for your Car. Think once more - Safety of Car Radiator or Bumper is more Important or Safety of Car Passengers ?

Read through in one of the article. Thanks for reading.
