Transportation tube for roof rack

The transportation tube is available as a single tube. The length stated always refers to the hose length. The door and end cap make the total length approx. 80 mm longer.

In the standard version, a door with flange is riveted to one side of the tube (riveted from inside to outside), and an end cap to the other side. On request, doors can be fitted to both sides.

Fastening clip - quick and safe

The fastening clip is used to fasten the transportation tube quickly and safely on the crossbeam of the roof rack. The stainless steel fastening clip also sets visual accents.

When fastening to the roof rack, ensure that the overhang does not exceed 40 cm. Polyethylene tends to stretch when exposed to heat and becomes less rigid. An excessive tube overhang may result in the transportation tube bending downwards. This physical material property does not constitute any grounds for a complaint. It can be prevented by correctly mounting the system on the roof according to the instructions.

The maximum spacing between the clips must not exceed 1.4 m. This means for example that at least 3 clips are needed for a 3.1 m tube (max. overhang 0.4 m).
