Add a unique look to your vehicle whilst providing the highest ease of entry and exit for people with these side bars. Manufactured from high quality stainless steel tubing with a hand polished finish to give it that mirrored look, these bars instantly boosts the appearance of the Qashqai. In addition to this step grooves are attached to the bars to maximise your foot grip when entering and exiting the vehicle. All the required fittings and instructions are included for a simple and easy DIY fitting to your vehicle.
We could use a cheap mild steel and then chrome plate it when manufacturing our bars but we don't.
Because after a year or so the bar would look unsightly when weeping rust stains appear. In the iron/carbon mix chromium is also added that gives the steel its stainless qualities. The chromium element stops the iron from oxidising and becoming rust (iron oxide). Road salt used during European winters and sea salt, speed up rust formation and again gives us another good reason to use stainless steel here in the UK & in Europe where our products are sold. Stainless steel can be exposed to the elements all year round and with a little polish now and again, can look as good as the day it came out of the packaging. This is the reason boat makers use stainless, and not mild steel.
Our stainless has a 3-year warranty, features a mirror polished chrome or black powder coated look (on some black finished items) but is in-fact more expensive, more durable, stainless steel.
