Automotive Roof Bars Market: Introduction
Automotive roof bars are employed for the effective transportation of load while travelling. Roof bars, also known as roof racks, are a group of bars attached to the roof of the vehicles, which help the customers to load luggage, canoes, bicycles, kayaks and so on. By placing the luggage on roof bar, the space in cargo area as well as inside the automobile can be utilized more effectively.
The three most common parts in an automotive roof bar system are mounts, towers and rails. The rails are also called as tracks or side rails, their function is to support the frame of the roof bars; mounts are the parts used to protect the objects from falling from the vehicle roof and the towers are the components used to support the base of the luggage and are attached to the rails of the roof bars. Earlier, the roof bars were often mounted directly on the roof of the vehicles on the roof line. But now, roof bars can be attached with the help of hooks to the roof of the vehicles when needed and can be removed after use. This makes the automotive roof bar a portable tool.
