Safety specialists, BOSS ORV, have been appointed as the sole UK and Ireland distributor for all Air-Rops products, which offer a range of rollover solutions for the outdoor power equipment industry. ROPs on ATVs have always been a contentious issue, however, BOSS believe that in certain applications, and after a thorough risk assessment, they do offer additional protection for the operator. 
Air-Rops have the advantage over traditional ROPs of not raising the centre of gravity of the machine, due to it sitting lower than the operator when not deployed. The first Air-Rops product that BOSS ORV has introduced is the AR Quad safety bar, for ATVs and agricultural machinery, which uses Air-Rops technology in a fully automatic Roll Over Protection System. 
They base the technology on new automotive components, including safety electronics and proven and reliable airbag gas inflators and an electronic control unit continuously monitors the behaviour of the quad, ultimately warning the rider with acoustic and visual signals when the vehicle is about to reach a state where stability is compromised. 
The system automatically evaluates the rollover condition until a tilting state is reached and, only when the tilt takes place, activates the rollover bar. The electronic control unit operates the inflator, and the gas is fully released, extending the bar and the mechanism locks. The system only operates when the rider enters and cannot avoid the full tilt and the final position after deployment of the ROPS is limited to a maximum 90°, preventing full rollover which not only helps minimise personal injury it also reduces damage to the quad. 
The universal AR Quad design fits most ATVs with independent suspension using bolts on the luggage carrier and towbar and installation is easy with the system coming fully assembled and only requires the ATV dealer to perform simple electrical and mechanical actions. It requires no scheduled maintenance and is reusable after a rollover. The system only needs inspection and approval by an ATV technician, and the gas generator can be replaced to return the bar to its original condition.
Due to the system sitting low behind the rider and being compact, spectators shouldn’t notice the AR Quad when the quad is being driven, only when it is needed. The system is SGS Certified and CE marked, adhering to the strictest environmental and regulatory standards and anyone using a quad should seriously consider having an AR Quad fitted – it could one day save your life.
Air-Rops will only be available through specialist approved dealers and regional distributors and unlike other ROPs will not be available by mail order or directly online. This is to ensure that every unit is correctly installed and able to be monitored by the supplying dealer.
