DESIGNED AND ENGINEERED
FOR OFF-ROAD USE

All ARB roof racks and mounting kits are designed and engineered for off-road use and are rated and tested inline with the roof load limit of each individual vehicle. This means you can be assured that no matter where you go, your ARB roof rack is up to the task!

Further, to ensure proper weight distribution, each cross beam of the ARB BASE Rack is rated to 25kg, meaning you can load up to 25kg per beam or, for example, spread 75kg of load across three beams.

Extruded Aluminium Beams

The BASE Rack is manufactured from extruded aluminium beams. To further increase the rack’s overall rigidity, each beam is constructed of a single seamless box piece of aluminium with additional internal bracing for added strength, which runs the length of all internal and perimeter beams. Further strength to the overall rack design come from running the internal cross beams perpendicular to the length of the rack and vehicle.


 

FULLY WELDED CONSTRUCTION

No bolts, structural screws or rivets – the BASE Rack is robot welded for superior strength, accuracy and style.

 

CROSS BEAM DESIGN

Shorter beams and subsequently more rigidity and virtually no flex in the rack’s overall construction under load.

 

EASILY CART LONGER ITEMS

The cross beam design additionally makes for easier cartage of long and/or thin items such as timber, pipe and poles.

Unique dovetail design

EASILY MOUNT YOUR ROOF LOAD

The BASE Rack takes accessories and cargo loading to a whole new level of simplicity, speed and personalisation. By incorporating a dovetail extrusion around the full perimeter as well as along each edge of the internal beams, we have created more possibilities for mounting locations whilst also lowering the mounting point to complement the overall low-profile design of the rack.

By utilising a dovetail rather than a channel, you can attach and remove items without having to slide them along a channel or remove any other accessories or fixing points that are already in that channel.


 

QUICKLY ATTACH AND REMOVE ITEMS

The combination of the dovetail extrusion matched with the dovetail clamp design of the complementary accessory range makes for quicker interactions.

 

ENJOY MORE ROOM ON TOP

Side mounting also frees up more uninterrupted cargo space along the top of each internal and external beam.

 

NO MORE DUST AND DEBRIS COLLECTION

The dovetail design means less dirt entrapment – resulting in easy cleaning! The dovetail extrusion runs 360 around the outer perimeter, as well as up and down both edges of each internal beam.

Low profile

A one-piece, fully welded platform rack fitted to a range of low-profile blade mounts, the BASE Rack provides improved access into low clearance areas, all the while looking sleek on the roof of your pride and joy!

The BASE Rack is sold standard as a low-profile platform rack and can easily be transformed into a touring or trade rack by installing the rail system that best suits your needs.

Removable end caps

Nothing ruins a sleek roof rack like metres of electrical cable and cable ties. Yet another advantage of the extruded aluminium beam design is that electrical cabling can be fed either through the removable corner caps or by drilling a small entry point on a hidden inner fascia, where you are mounting your work or driving lights along the perimeter.

Additionally, a revolutionary new electrical roof grommet allows all your electrical wires to neatly pass through the kin of your vehicle’s roof and into appropriate pillar cavities for a seamless 12-volt connection.
