ALX Reinforced Passenger Bulkhead
The most obvious and main feature for the bulkhead is to create an important
safety barrier between those in the cab from the horse. If the unimaginable
happens and a frontal impact crash occurs our ALX reinforced bulkhead makes
the real difference with the potential to save lives!
We build our own reinforced bulkhead which is seamlessly welded and attached
to the cab incorporating lateral strut work using over 25 metres of cross
membered grid framework steel. This is seamlessly welded together at 4 points
each using 5mof weld in 30mm steel box frame sections for maximum strength
You cannot weld an aluminium bulkhead to the steel OEM fixing points which
are already built onto the cab by the manufacturer. Therefore, ALX choose
steel framework within our bulkhead vs aluminium which allows us to keep you
and your horse as safe as possible in the event of an emergency. Proven to be
stronger than aluminium, non-susceptible to wave action and can repeatedly
take impact damage over time and not falter, structural steel is our choice of
material for longevity and safety.
Our bulkhead has been proven in a strength test by the Royal Veterinary
College and Humberside Fire and Rescue, these tests it has also been crash tested for 3 times the weight it needs to conform to ISO27956:2009.
