Robust and durable

Towbars from ORIS are designed for durability.

Our aim is for ORIS towbars to last the life of a car without requiring maintenance. That is why we place the highest value on a long service life when developing our systems.

We achieve this by focussing on aspects such as durability and resilience for all components. This applies to the selection of materials, production, assembly and service.

An ORIS towbar contains a large number of connections that have to hold a wide variety of materials together permanently, even under extreme operating conditions – in cold, heat, snow, rain or ice, on poor roads or in tricky driving situations. We continuously subject connections and materials to stringent test procedures such as strength tests or functional tests in the cold and heat chamber.

All steel components (ball neck, cross member, connector plate) are provided with corrosion protection. This means that the towbar from ORIS can be used safely for years to come.

Durability and safety are closely linked. At ORIS, we also attach particular importance to compliance with norms and standards. To this end, we are regularly audited by independent certification organisations. Every ORIS towbar must also comply with company-specific construction and design standards. These are often stricter than the legal requirements. We test our towbars on an ongoing basis.

How we test durability

At ORIS, we continuously subject our towbars to extensive tests in which every component is put through its paces.
As part of a load test, the forces that act on the towbar in everyday life are simulated, such as driving with maximum towing capacity or travelling with a fully loaded bike carrier. The product load test confirms that the ORIS towbar will function perfectly and safely under legal and company-specific conditions for the product’s service life.
