Our regular round-up of what’s new in the LCV and accessories world.
AUSTRALIAN VEHICLE SAFETY component manu-facturer Milford Industries has added Sealed Cargo Barriers to its occupant protection range sold in New Zealand.
The barriers have been tested and rated to meet the New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 4034.1.
Milford says they can withstand a of 48km/h. Each Sealed Cargo Barrier features Milford’s patented mounting methods which further support the barrier in a collision or accident.
The barriers are vehicle specific and use a rubber pinch weld to ensure full sealing. Milford says that cabin sealing provides vapour control, improved airconditioning efficiency and cabin comfort and also reduces fuel consumption.
The sealed nature of Milford’s Sealed Cargo Barriers also protects occupants from fumes, dust and noise from the cargo area, making the vehicle a far safer and more comfortable working environment.
Each Milford Sealed Cargo Barrier has a sealed transparent window that enables clear visibility between the cabin and cargo areas.
This window is made from a purposely fabricated polycarbonate sheet, specially tested to meet impact requirements and eliminating the need for additional metal reinforcements.
The polycarbonate is also UV stabilised, heat resistant and meets the SAE International Standard 9034.
Milford’s Sealed Cargo Barriers are finished with a highly durable white polyester powder coat that complies with the New Zealand Standard AS/NZ 4506.
Milford says the powder coating provides additional durability against all environmental elements making it a safe option when used in the transportation of FMCG, solvents, paints and other potentially hazardous materials.
Milford offers two design variants of the Sealed Cargo Barriers: an angular profile that maximises seat reclining for optimal driver comfort and a linear design to maximise cargo area for a greater load capacity.
As each Sealed Cargo Barrier is vehicle specific, Milford provides detailed and comprehensive fitting instructions that include step-by-step line art images to help efficient and straight forward installation. The Sealed Cargo Barriers are covered by the company’s full lifetime warranty.
