Looking for a crash tested dog guard?

By 18th May 2022 No Comments

If you’re looking for a dog guard to keep your dogs safely in the boot and protect your passengers and yourself in the event of an accident, you can’t get safer or better value than a VarioBarrier crash tested dog guard. Unlike most other dog guards on the market, our guards are crash tested according to crash standard ECE-R17 / ISO 27955, and once fitted, the legal requirement for load securing is met and you, your family and your pets will be much safer.  They’re also a very reasonable price, starting at only £123.

Our crash tested dog guard is flexible enough to accompany you from car to car, and is fully adjustable in width and height to ensure that it will fit the shape of each vehicle. The dog guard can also be safely fitted without any alterations or damage to the inside of the car.

The dog guard prevents dogs being flung forward and injuring themselves on the car contents or windscreen: dogs are often thrown through the windscreen on impact if they are not appropriately restrained. The guard simultaneously protects passengers from the full force of animals, luggage or other items being propelled from the boot space into the vehicle if the event of an accident.

Our uncompromising focus on safety by crash testing from different angles with the safety products in situ in the vehicle means that we know that the guard will work in tandem with your vehicle’s crumple zone, further protecting anyone, dogs or people, from risk of injury.

As well as our own branded dog guards, we are a trusted supplier of dog guards for a wide range of vehicle brands and models, and we work closely alongside vehicle manufacturers to design and manufacture safe, crash tested guards that large organisations trust and depend upon.

We have two different models of VarioBarrier dog guard available. The VarioBarrier Original small, medium or large is suitable for vehicles that contain load anchors and a flat boot floor. The VarioBarrier Headrest (HR) is the best option for smaller vehicles with no load anchors.

If you would like to turn your entire boot space into a protected, secure area for your dog to travel, then our VarioGate tailgate guard works extremely well alongside the VarioBarrier. The VarioGate is the ONLY crash tested tailgate guard currently available and gives you the entire boot space to use for dogs, large items or luggage. If you need to segregate the boot space into two separate compartments, for different dogs or for dogs and luggage, then the VarioDivider fits the bill nicely. This system is extremely popular with our dog sports customers, who compete in dog sports such as agility, obedience, hoopers, heelwork to music and flyball.
