BARRIERS SAVE LIVES!
Cargo barriers protect the occupants from injury caused by moving cargo or other objects in accidents. They are manufactured to the Australian Standard and are available for all popular makes and models.
They are usually made of metal mesh or polycarbonate and in station wagons can be fitted in two positions, either behind the rear passengers seats or, when these are folded down to carry longer or larger items, behind the front seats, ie., driver and passenger.
Manufacturers, such as the South Australian company Milford Industries, have a comprehensive range and nationwide distribution network to service the retail and/or automotive dealer market. Prices for popular model vehicles are in the $400-$500 range, fitted to the vehicle.
Owners of vehicles should be aware that even the family grocery shopping could injure or even kill passengers or the driver of the vehicle in the event of a relatively minor accident. The damage that an unrestrained lawn mower, tool box, stroller or building materials can cause must be seen as a tragedy.
4WD owners have realised the value of cargo barriers as they carry recovery gear, camping equipment and larger loads. A cargo barrier also aids in the event of a rollover by supporting the roof line and helping occupant protection.

case of the metal mesh style, is
Always look for a barrier that complies to the Australian Standard (the barrier will have a plastic card with this information attached to it) and have it fitted professionally by a cargo barrier distributor.
Cargo barriers are used by government departments and businesses who are responsible under the Workcover and health and safety regulations. Any employee who uses a vehicle such as a station wagon, panel van or cargo van in their work should ensure that their employer has an approved cargo barrier fitted to the vehicle.
For a relatively small outlay, a cargo barrier is far more cost effective than, say, air bags. Air bags are certainly worthwhile, but expensive compared to cargo barriers. And it is possible the air bags may function in an accident, only for the occupants to be killed or injured by unrestrained cargo. THINK ABOUT IT!
