Rhino Linings Protect Your Bakkie’s Load Bay

A bakkie is made for work. The load bay of a full-size bakkie can take upwards of a metric tonne and the stuff you put back there could be virtually anything, from sand, stone, and garden refuse to retail products, holiday luggage, and camping paraphernalia. The bottom line is that this space is made for loading things and, as such, it takes a beating. Therefore, it makes little sense that the vast majority of bakkies are sold with normal painted load bays without any form of protection. The very first time you use the bakkie to transport anything, the paint will become scratched and damaged, allowing in moisture and setting the scene for rust forming. All bakkies should come as standard with load-bay protection like Rhino’s top-quality bin linings, but they don’t.

Luckily, Electronic Fitment Centre is here to help. We fit specialised bin protection for bakkies and we prefer the Rhino Linings brand because of several reasons. The most important is that it is an extremely tough product made of polyurethane that will resist wear and tear for years. Furthermore, and in contrast to some drop-in plastic tubs, the Rhino Linings product is sprayed on for a watertight bond with the body. Therefore, there is no gap between the protective layer and the bodywork of the vehicle, like there would be in the case of a drop-in plastic type. No gaps mean no chafing, rubbing, and water ingress, which means that the paint cannot be damaged or worn away, allowing in moisture that can cause rust and body rot.

Rhino Linings also offers polyurea protection for larger truck beds and big trailers. This is a particularly specialised product meant for this type of application and it has been estimated to be around four times stronger than most other types of conventional protection measures. It also lasts longer than any of the other kinds of rubberised protective layers usually used in this type of application. Another boon is that all these protective treatments can be refurbished and reapplied when the time comes. Last but not least, you can order your Rhino Linings bin protection in any colour to match your bakkie.

It should be clear why we only use Rhino Linings bin protection at EFC. There is no better protective treatment for the load bays of bakkies, trucks, and trailers. Besides bin protection, EFC offers a vast range of other aftermarket products for cars and bakkies. Call us to find out more.

We Fit Anti-Smash-and-Grab Window-Protection Film

Smash-and-grab incidents are, sadly, far too common in South Africa and they tend to happen when you least expect them. Opportunistic bandits and thieves are always on the lookout for motorists that don’t pay attention to their surroundings or are busy on their phones. So, the most important thing is that, if you stay vigilant, many of these types of incidents can be avoided. However, sometimes you are stuck in traffic and cannot drive away immediately or another unfortunate combination of circumstances means that you fall victim to a smash-and-grab crime. So, you’d better come prepared.

Have A Bluetooth Car Kit Installed Today

It is illegal to handle your cellphone using your hands while operating your vehicle, whether you are driving or standing still at the traffic lights. Not only that, but it is also dangerous. To enable you to make and receive calls safely while on the road, you need a Bluetooth car kit. This is a device that uses short-range Bluetooth wireless technology to connect to your phone so you can interact with the device using your voice instead of touching your phone. Many vehicles today are fitted as standard with this type of technology but if you have one that isn’t – or you drive an older car – you need a Bluetooth kit.

Have A Wireless Car Charger Installed in Any Car

That’s right, a wireless car charger is not the reserve of the latest, new-fangled fully connected wonder cars anymore. You can now have a wireless phone charger installed in your older model car too. You might have noticed these special charging pads in the newest car models and realised that they have to be ordered from the factory at great cost. Having one retrofitted in an older car is certainly not an option, you thought. But now it is. As is usually the case with such a new technology, it is only a matter of time before aftermarket kits become available that can be fitted to any car.

Unobtrusive Wireless Car Charger

You won’t even notice our wireless car charger. We hide away its fuse and all its cabling. All we need is a flat plastic panel against which you can place your phone while you are driving. The pad is glued in place behind the panel and, as long as the plastic is not thicker than 3 mm, charges your phone wirelessly through it. A suitable surface can be an oddments tray, a central armrest, or similar places. The installation is supplied complete with its 750-mm wiring harness and in-line fuse. We connect the one side to the chassis and the other to a 12-V ignition point and voila, you’re ready to go! Say goodbye to unsightly cables when charging your latest-model smartphone.

Bluetooth Car Kits

It’s against the law to operate your mobile phone and your vehicle at the same time and while a wireless charger takes care of charging, you should also have a Bluetooth kit installed to take care of making calls while driving. We endorse the market-leading Parrot brand and offer a range of their Bluetooth kits. The most basic models have no display and only a few buttons. They are easy to use and boast adjustable microphones and noise-cancelling technology. But you can also go all-out with the flagship Parrot Asteroid Smart, a double-DIN, full-colour, touch-screen, all-in-one device that takes and makes calls, connects to the Internet, and loads Android apps. It is even a full-feature GPS.

Accessories

Other accessories are also available, of which anti-smash-and-grab window tinting, gear locks, spare-wheel locks, bakkie bin liners and covers, and tracking and recovery systems are only a few. You can bring your car right up to date with all our convenience, comfort, safety, and security accessories. Whether it is a wireless phone charger or an air-conditioner, we can fit it. Call us today.
