Underbody armour and bash plates
Bash plates, also known as underbody protection plates, provide your vehicle's underside with increased protection for off-road use.
Upgrading a vehicle's underbody protection system is one of the most important modifications a four wheel drive enthusiast can make. It is crucial that vulnerable steering, engine and drive-train components are protected from strikes and impacts off-road.
Whilst many vehicles are fitted with basic skid plates from the factory, they are built to a compromise, generally made from either plastic or very thin metal, and not remotely adequate for even light four wheel drive applications.
Redroo Offroad offers a range of custom made 4mm steel and 5mm alloy protection plates for various makes and models. There are some very expensive vehicle components fitted to the vehicle's underside and our custom bash plates will protect them.
Redroo Offroad 4x4 protection plates are custom made to perfectly integrate into your vehicle's design with carefully positioned venting and water dispersion holes. This protects the key components without compromising airflow and durability.
Offroad driving exposes your vehicle to damage from various obstacles such as rocks, logs, bumps and scrapes, particularly prevalent in vehicles with low ride height or independent suspension.
Underbody protection plates have commonly relied upon off-road as a layer of armour underneath your 4x4. However, good design is crucial to ensure the plates are not too heavy and rigid which can actually contribute to severe damage to the structure of your vehicle in the event of a heavy impact.
By using the latest design analysis software, Redroo Offroad will engineer a solution using pressed or folded steel which will protect vulnerable underbody components by safely absorbing impact energy from heavy contact with a solid object.
Pressed ribs and folded reinforcements provide significant strength without adding unnecessary weight to your vehicle.
