Rigidek – Load Bin Security

Rigidek Protection for Your Bakkie

South Africa has a large bakkie culture, thanks in part to the farming lifestyle where farmers use bakkies to not only haul farming produce to the market, but also to traverse the farm without getting stuck or being bested by an obtrusive middelmannetjie. Today, bakkies are everywhere and although they are intended for tackling rough roads and hauling heavy cargo, people buy and drive the double-cab versions in suburbs and cities and sometimes hardly ever use them as workhorses thanks to their versatility.

Never Get Lost with A Car Navigation System

 When you get behind the wheel of a car, you must know where you are going. Rewinding the clock to the early 2000s, the car market started to change, offering people important new technology. Although engine control units and various other electronic devices improved to the overall driving experience and helped drivers to drive more efficiently, the idea of adding satellite navigation seemed too far-fetched for regular city cars and compact hatchbacks such as the Ford Fiesta and Volkswagen Golf. Manufacturers such as Garmin and Kenwood started to produce their own takes on satellite navigation systems for cars.
