Side Guard Systems
range of rail components
Fitting & accessories
Dawes Highway Safety stocks a wide range of truck side guard rails and HGV parts. The fitment of side guard systems is a mandatory requirement on all new vehicles over 3.5T, so it’s vital that you have a properly fitting lateral side protection device on your truck or trailer.
Our rails and components are extremely robust and salt spray tested (500 hours) to ensure a high level of durability. We provide VCA tested and approved side guard rails with both fixed and hinged systems to choose from.
You can be assured that our side guard components meet all mandatory requirements of full vehicle type approval under regulation 73 (UNECE) and can be used immediately without worrying about red tape, fees, additional tests and time wasting.
