Trailer wheel arches

What is a wheel arch?
Wheel arches are the semicircular part of a vehicle’s bodywork that allows for the wheels to be accessed. In other words, it’s the metal part above the wheel.
Wheel arches are also known as mud guards as they act to prevent dirt and other substances from getting up onto the vehicle itself.
Trailer wheel arches function just like regular car aches only they need to be custom designed to suit the specifications and sizes of your trailer (or four-wheel-drive).

All about aluminium
Why do we make our trailer wheel arches out of aluminium?
Aluminium is a naturally occurring metal alloy that is used just about everywhere and for just about everything. Why? Because there are numerous benefits to the material.
Cars have long been made with aluminium for certain parts. Due to the durability and lightweight properties of the metal, it allows for a robust build but also enables a highly fuel efficient drive.
Aluminium is not a heavy metal which means that it’s both a cost-effective option to produce and buy, and extremely malleable in application, such as in use as trailer wheel arches. As part of a trailer, it’s even more important that the material you use for each part is as light as possible.
Everybody loves to save money. With aluminium you can. This alloy metal is a practical choice of material for both budget sensitive customers and trailer owners looking for an affordable yet high quality solution to their 4×4 or trailer fit-out.
Aluminum is extremely durable and long lasting. Not only will it stand up to the rigours of the road, but it’s super tough against harsh weather climates, such as heat, frost and rain, as well as corrosion and harmful UV radiation.
Aluminium is well known for its efficient thermal properties. Thanks to its ability to reduce heat transmission, aluminium has made for an excellent choice in vehicles for decades.
You’ll be literally dragging your trailer behind you, burdened with who-knows-what. If you don’t have a material that can keep up with your demands, you’ll find yourself in hot water. Aluminium offers a unique level of strength despite being light in weight.
Aluminium, in just about all cases, is very recyclable. Moreover, the low energy use relatively in its production makes this metal very green and environmentally friendly at every stage of its lifecycle.
Being non-flammable and non-combustible, aluminium offers a high fire safety rating. This makes it excellent for use in cars, 4x4s, and trailers.
Resistant to corrosion
The oxide coating of aluminium offers increased corrosion resistance. Whether your trailer is being dragged through dirt, mud, water or sand, aluminium will help keep you trailer wheel arches in tip top condition.
We understand that your wheel arches are not something you want to be bothered and thinking about for long. Our wheel arches for trailers are made from aluminium which ensures that there’s just about no maintenance required to keep them gleaming, working and in place.
Aluminium offers a ton of additional benefits, such as:
- Electrical conductivity
- Thermal conductivity
