MSA 4X4 ACCESSORIES AWARDED GLOBAL MEDIA AWARD


MSA 4X4 Accessories, the Aussie company renowned for making some of the 4WD Industry’s most innovative products, has just been awarded a Global Media Award for their newly released MSA 4X4 Towing Mirrors! The Award was presented to Shane Miles MSA 4X4’s Director, at this year’s SEMA Show, held in Las Vegas in November. The SEMA Show is the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world, with over 2,400 exhibiting companies showcasing over 3,000 of the industry’s newest products!

The SEMA Global Media Awards Program recognises those companies that manufacture specialty products and accessories that would have mass appeal to consumers around the world. The products are voted on by a prestigious group of around 30 international journalists from 19 countries who serve as Global Media Award judges.

MSA 4X4’s highly anticipated new patented Towing Mirrors are designed to offer enhanced vision when towing, whilst being unobtrusive for everyday driving. “We’re extremely proud that our new Towing Mirrors have been recognised by the international media” explained Shane Miles. “It’s taken years to develop a mirror that, when not towing, was not disproportionate to the styling of the vehicle, and matched the size of the vehicle.”

MSA 4X4’s new patented Towing Mirrors feature a unique design with a large single mirror that pivots on an extremely heavy-duty extension slide, that allows the mirror to be returned to its normal, “non-towing” position, to avoid the extended mirrors permanently protruding off the sides of the vehicle. MSA 4X4 stand behind the high-quality build and design of their new Towing Mirrors with a class-leading 5-year warranty.

The stock of these award-winning new Towing Mirrors will available in Australia from early December 2019, with pre-orders being taken through MSA 4X4’s stockist network. These new mirrors are on track to quickly become one of MSA 4X4’s most popular product ranges!

Introducing the Dometic Dust Reduction System

Through its smart design, the Dometic Dust Reduction System minimises the amount of dust, harmful airborne particles and pollens that can enter your caravan. The easiest way to keep your caravan clean? Don’t let dust enter in the first place!

DUSTY ROADS HERE WE COME

Imagine being able to drive further whilst reducing the dust inside your caravan. With a rooftop ventilation system like the Dometic Dust Reduction System, you can significantly reduce the amount of dust in your caravan, breath fresher air and reduce the cleaning time after caravan trips. Fitted on top of the caravan, this is a non-powered system that operates when driving. When stationary it also provides free air flow ventilation and blocks foreign object from entering.

  • Significantly reduces the amount of dust, harmful airborne particles and pollens entering the caravan
  • Reduces cleaning time after caravan trips
  • Filters out dust particles with a PM10 filter
  • Non-powered operation requires no opening or closing of vents
  • Dust filters can be easily replaced from inside the caravan
  • Fits roof openings between 280 x 280 mm and 400 x 400 mm and roof thicknesses between 30 mm and 65 mm
  • Low profile rooftop unit is extremely lightweight at approximately 5 kg

PATENTED DESIGN

When the caravan is in motion, the air inside is pressurised and the DRS allows the clean air to flow in and airborne dust to be pushed out from other spaces, reducing additional dust from entering.

STYLISH AIRFLOW GRILLE

The clever design also keeps the weather and elements outside. It will stop rain from entering the caravan, where the water is directed to outlets but if there is prolonged and heavy rain, water will become trapped in the filter holder where it will evaporate without entering the caravan. If required in highly windy conditions, there is a blocker plate that can be used to block the airflow through the main filter. Now you don’t have the excuse of dust, wind or rain to stop you from heading off the beaten track and enjoying your time away from home even more.

REPLACEABLE AIR FILTERS

The patented design includes the PM10 filter that captures dust particles. It can also reduce harmful airborne particles and pollen that can remain suspended in the air for an extended time after stopping. It has been heavily tested in the dusty regions of Australia and is proven to reduce dust even when directly behind a vehicle on a dirt road.

A review of Xtend Outdoors

I have known Xtend Outdoors as Aust Wide Annexes for quite a while, but they have changed their name with their expansion into New Zealand. While they have a new name, they have not changed the high standard of their products.

Inflatable Annex

I was able to check out their wonderful inflatable annex, which is so easy to set up and such a clever idea. Instead of having poles and roof supports, you have super strong inflated air poles. The corner poles, and roof supports are inflated using a foot pump and it takes about 20 goes to inflate each air pole. Once they have been inflated they are extremely strong and will keep the annex in place with ease.

One of the best things is that all of the Xtend Outdoors products can be joined together with zips. It just takes a bit of forethought when you are adding in a new product to make it fit the existing products.

Ripstop Awning

Xtend Outdoors have a new style vinyl for their awnings. Forget the colour changes that you see in the current vinyl, this new one is just one colour. But it’s not laminated like the current ones, so it cannot delaminate. It wont shrink or stretch, it is thicker and stronger, but the big thing here is that it won’t rip.

The secret here is that it is made in very small squares, so if by any strange chance you get a cut in the vinyl, it will only go as far as the edge of that very small square. What a wonderful idea.

Xtend Outdoors is the new name to remember for all your annex and awning needs and wants.

REDARC introduce a range of accessories for AC Battery Chargers

REDARC has introduced a range of accessories for use with their co-branded 12V SmartCharge AC Battery Chargers by DEFA launched in late 2018. 

The accessories can be used with the SmartCharge range, AC to DC battery chargers designed to automatically charge and maintain most 12V automotive and auxiliary batteries including Lithium (LiFePO4). 

Since their release, the SmartCharge range has become popular with users in a wide range of applications such as cars, boats, motorbikes, scooters, lawnmowers and just about anything else with a small battery that isn’t used on a regular basis. 

With the introduction of the range of accessories to complement the SmartChargers, recharging batteries has never been easier thanks to a new 12V Charging Kit and two 12V Charging Cables. 

The 12V Charging Kit (#SBC12ACC1-4) is a charging cable with ring terminals that includes a socket for permanent mounting to a battery, ultimately saving the user the hassle of accessing the battery in hard to reach locations. The cable can also charge and power electrical devices like mobile phones, sound systems, and fridges via its socket. 

The 12V Charging Cable with Ring Terminals (#SBC12ACC1-5) allows the user to permanently mount the ring terminals on a battery. It is ideally used on applications such as motorbikes, ATV’s, scooters, jet-skis, and lawn mowers. 

The 12V Charging Cable with Clamps (#SBC12ACC1-6) allows the user to permanently mount cables to a battery and is ideal for monitoring and charging batteries in showroom vehicles, fleets and other vehicles that remain unused for long periods of time. 

All three accessories feature a battery status indicator, which shows the battery charge level in real time via a coloured status indicator. The battery indicator shows the charge status of the battery via a red, yellow or green light. 

The advantage of these accessory cables is that they can be permanently mounted to a battery, ultimately simplifying the charging process. To charge, simply take the cover off the battery status indicator and connect directly to your SmartCharger and press the ‘ON’ button. 

REDARC’s Managing Director, Anthony Kittel, said that by offering a range of accessories for the SmartCharge AC battery range means customers have even more choice when selecting a suitable charging solution whatever their application. 

“The feedback we have been receiving from our customers who are using a SmartCharge has been overwhelmingly positive, they have been impressed with their style, sophistication and how easy they make recharging. As a result, we are introducing this range of accessories to make the charging process even easier.” 

“With the Charging Kit and Charging Cables, you won’t need to find your way to the battery in order to connect it to the SmartCharge as they offer a permanent mounting solution.” 

The REDARC range of AC SmartCharge Battery Chargers by DEFA is available in four variants, 4, 6, 8 and 10amps. The 4 and 6A units are suited for applications with a smaller battery including bikes, scooters, lawnmowers whereas the 8 and 10A variants are suited for bigger batteries used in cars, caravans, campers and RV’s. 

The main advantage of the SmartCharge range is that they recognise the type of battery it’s connected to and adjusts their charging process to suit the battery’s charge status, size and ambient temperature conditions. They also have a clear display which shows the status of charge and battery charge level. 

REDARC has partnered with Norwegian manufacturer DEFA, with both companies sharing similar values and focusing on continuous improvement, innovation and most importantly providing customers with great products of the highest quality. 

The SmartCharge range of AC Battery Chargers and their accessories are covered by a 5-year warranty.
