The Cantilever Rack is a seriously robust optional extra for the Aluminium Canopy with a 200kg load capacity.
All utes are designed to flex in between the wellside and the cab. This can be problematic for a traditional roof rack setup that is mounted to both the cab and the canopy because it can cause damage while the flex occurs.
The Cantilever Roof Rack extends over the cab making it completely independent and eliminates the risk of damage to the cab! The Cantilever Rack is seriously useful and robust and is an optional extra for the Aluminium Canopy.
Fibreglass or ABS canopies can easily crack under stress.
Despite being lightweight, if engineered correctly aluminium can achieve a very high strength-to-weight ratio and withstand a significant amount of weight and stress without breaking.
This means you can carry much heavier loads than you ever could on a fibreglass or ABS canopy, without going over your Gross Vehicle Mass rating.
Using the hex-shaped tie-down points you can be sure your straps will sit firmly in place by crisscrossing between the hex cutouts on each side.
The cut-outs are also particularly useful if you are using straps with hooks to secure PVC pipe, kayaks or any trade and recreational gear.
Tie-downs often end up tangled up in the vehicle or chucked in with the gear in the tub.
The Utemaster Rachet Straps have a unique fitting bracket that is designed to mount to the Cantilever Roof Rack.
This bracket is fastened using wing bolts and can stay there permanently meaning you will always be ready to tie down your load.
Whether it's a kayak, ladder or trade material - lifting gear onto a typical Roof Rack setup is difficult due to the height and weight of the object you are loading.
The Rear Ladder Roller is an optional accessory that attaches directly to the Utemaster Cantilever Roof Rack.
This makes it easier to slide heavy objects onto the rack from the rear of the vehicle.
