If you’re a pet owner, how many times have you had to clean muddy paw prints from your Volkswagen’s seats and carpets? And, how many times have you been distracted by your dog while trying to focus on the road ahead? By fitting a Travall Guard, you can now create a special, separate space for them in the rear of your vehicle. However, if you don’t have a dog, fitting one could still be a good idea. That’s because our guards can also protect you and your passengers when out on the road.
Every year, there are hundreds of people badly injured by the everyday objects found in most cars. In a collision, unsecured items like luggage and shopping could easily fly forward at speed and, because of the simple laws of physics, at many times their standing weight. This effect could cause significantly more serious injuries if you carry heavier items such as tools, baby buggies or golf clubs. And even sharp or sudden braking could prove harmful.
This is why fitting a Travall Guard in your Volkswagen is such a good idea, as it will act as a barrier between any loose cargo and the car’s occupants. But be aware, not just any old guard will do the job. We don’t believe any of the ‘one size first all’ types of guard, made for many different makes and models, will be up to the job. Ours, on the other hand, are strong enough to typically absorb a weight of 30kg travelling at 80km/h. Which could be a life saver.
Apart from our use of the best available materials, this strength comes partly from the fact that the Travall Guard will have been made exclusively for the Volkswagen you drive, whether that’s a Golf, Passat or Polo, or any of the larger models such as the Sharan, Touareg or Tiguan. This custom design also means that our guards are very easy to install at home – taking no more than 15 minutes using only basic tools.
