We've re-set the benchmark in quality 4WD Drawer Systems from a safety, functionality and quality perspective.
Consumers are becoming more aware of what to look for to ensure that their vehicle occupants are safe in the event of an accident and now have a clear benchmark to compare quality finish and features with.
Safety is something that we take seriously here at MSA 4X4, as items of load (cargo) carried inside the vehicle can weigh 20 – 30 times their own static weight during impact, which is capable of causing severe bodily injuries or even death to vehicle occupants.
Our new Explorer Aluminium Storage Drawer System has been successfully tested to ADR3/02, ADR34/01 & ADR42 and “passed all the requirements prescribed by the ADRs and AS/NZS, without any structural weaknesses or degradation of the system to the extent that it would affect the safety of the vehicle occupants or other road users.” (A copy of the Crash Test Certificate provided with every drawer sold) They are heavy duty crash tested to 250kg load rating per pair of drawers to enable customers to safely carry a comfortable load. It is the first ever aluminium drawer system to pass crash testing! Crash tested cargo barrier mount points and child restraint points are incorporated into the rear of the drawer frame as standard.
All MSA 4X4’s Seat Cover & Drawer crash testing is done by Grad Zivkovic, MSc,BSc,MIEA,MSAE - Automotive Engineer, Automotive Safety Engineering.
ASE’s (Automotive Safety Engineering) qualifications, test facilities and practices meet or exceed client’s requirements and legislated Standards. Managing Director and Chief Engineer Grad Zivkovic M.Sc, B.Sc, MIEA, MSAE founded ASE in 1994, and personally leads all projects and testing undertaken by ASE.
Not only did our MSA 4X4 Explorer Aluminium Storage Drawer System pass the crash testing, but it passed with flying colours! A second crash test was undertaken to place extreme strain on the components and they passed a second time!
This was a great achievement and supports MSA 4X4’s drive to be above the industry standard with design and quality.
Whilst every detail has been taken into account and engineered specifically to deliver the best and most reliable 4WD Storage Drawer System available in the market, MSA 4X4’s Lifetime Guarantee ensures that all Explorer Aluminium Storage Drawer System customers have the peace of mind that if anything were to go wrong, that they’d be looked after.
