Ford Escort MK2 Roll cage number F106. Safety Devices T45 full weld-in roll cage with cross door bars, cross diagonal in backstays, single roof diagonal, lower backstays, front triangulation, harness bars and tunnel brace
Initially used only for aerospace applications, T45 has been used in the manufacturing of Safety Devices’ roll cages for quite some time. The advantage of T45 is that it has a tensile strength approximately twice that of the standard Cold Drawn Seamless tube (CDS). Due to T45’s high tensile strength, we can manufacture the roll cage using tubing of the same diameter but of a thinner gauge (wall thickness). As a guide, this equates to a weight saving of approximately 0.5 kg per metre of tubing or 10 - 15% of the total roll cage weight when compared to CDS.
********This particular T45 cage is over 20kgs lighter than the equivelant CDS rollcage a massive 30% weight saving ********
