A new product that is being rolled out by a Mayo-based company could go a long way to making quad bikes (ATVs) safer on farmlands.

McHale Agri, Forest & Garden Ltd in Castlebar are the sole distributer of the new Air-Rops AR-Quad rollover protection system in Ireland.

The AR-Quad solution is a cost-effective automatically deployed rollover protective structure, specifically designed for ATVs, that covers the existing safety gaps related to low clearance operations, low centre of gravity and limited rollover protection for ATVs.

The universal AR-Quad design, fits most of the ATVs with rear independent suspension.

AR-Quad versatility can be fitted in a large number of ATVs with rear independent suspension. It is easily bolted to the rear rack and the towing hitch.

With very compact dimensions in its folded position, combined with the low center of gravity of the AR QUADS, makes it unnoticeable when riding the ATV.

The system can be reused after a rollover. After an inspection and approval by an ATV technician, the gas generator can be exchanged and the structure rearmed to the initial configuration.

Safety is top priority and makes part of the Air-Rops DNA. With this priority in mind, the system has been carefully designed following the stringiest mechanical, Functional Safety, environmental and regulatory standards, certified by SGS, and CE marked and type of approval issued by external notified bodies.

The system is supplied fully assembled and ready for the ATV dealer to install the AR-Quad on the ATV.

Installation only requires simple electrical and mechanical operations for the technician to execute.

“We have been appointed as the sole distributer in Ireland, we have noticed that there’s a lot of people with safety concerns with regards to quads,” Tom McHale, Managing Director of McHale Agri, Forest & Garden Ltd, told the Western People.

“This is a product that will make the use of quad bikes safer around farms.”
