Ali Arc Industries’ Product Warranty extends only to the original retail purchaser (Customer). When a product manufactured by Ali Arc Industries is purchased at a retail level, the Product Warranty is not transferable to any subsequent owner of a product or of a vehicle upon which a product is installed.
At Ali Arc Industries we make every effort to ensure we supply exactly what you require; on very rare occasions an error may occur. In the instance that Ali Arc is the party at fault, we will naturally accept these goods for credit or exchange, provided the return is arranged within seven days of delivery. Where the fault lies with the customer, we will accept goods for credit, provided goods were not manufactured as a "one-off". Please note: A 10% re-stocking fee will be deducted from the value of the credit. Original freight cost will not be credited.
Prior to returning goods to Ali Arc, please ensure the following steps are carried out:
In both instances, please:
While we make every effort to ensure product leaves our factory in perfect condition, occasionally freight damage can occur - meaning product is not in perfect condition when you receive it. Regrettably this is out of our control. This is why we stress to all our customers that product must be checked prior to signing the consignment note. Once the consignment note has been signed clean, Ali Arc can not lodge a claim with the freight company. While we will do our best to work with the customer to find an acceptable outcome, Ali Arc can not guarantee that this will happen.
Ali Arc Industries is committed to safety regulation compliance, and this is foremost in our minds whenever we embark on research and development. To ensure our frontal protections systems meet the safety criteria set out by NZTA (New Zealand Transport Association), we employ the services of ASE (Automotive Safety Engineering) PTY LTD, located in Lonsdale, South Australia. Our products are subjected to rigorous testing methods at ASE, and no Ali Arc bar is approved for fitment until we are satisfied that all safety regulations have been met.
The following testimonial has been supplied by Grad Zivkovic, Managing Director and Chief Engineer of ASE.
“The test methods used by our company are also used by other bullbar manufacturers and car manufacturers in Australia, New Zealand and overseas.
With regards to AS4876.1.2002 “Motor Vehicle Frontal Protection Systems”; Section 3 performance requirements and in particular Clause 3.1 “Australian Design Rules Compliance”; Clause 3.1 quotes “The VFPS shall continue to comply to all applicable Australian Design Rules”. All the VFPS’s tested by our company are being certified to continue to comply with all applicable ADR (Australian Design Rules) and Standards.
To achieve this, the following test methods are being used:
The above tests are being performed on real vehicles as well as on replica chassis. In the past ten years our company has tested over 300 models of Vehicle Frontal Protection Systems (bullbars), and it is estimated that over 300,000 tested VFPS’s are being fitted on motor vehicles in Australia and overseas. Over that period of ten years, approximately 2000 vehicles were involved in major and minor collisions and no adverse airbag deployment was reported.
The above facts give us confidence that our test methods developed over the years are accurate and can be used to certify a VFPS for airbag compatibility.”

To make your buying experience easier, we have several Light Commercial Vehicle product stockists nationwide from whom you can purchase our great products. It’s as simple as checking the Stockists tab to see who services your area.
Customers based in Wanganui, Manawatu, Ruapehu, Central Hawkes Bay, Wairarapa, and Horowhenua can purchase direct from Ali Arc. Outside of these areas, you’ll need to contact your local stockist.
It is only natural that the shine on your aluminium bar will dull over time, however it's simple to bring it back to life with minimal time and effort.
We recommend the use of an automotive metal polish such as Autosol.
