Information - Wheel Arch Cover

The wheel recesses are the most vulnerable areas of any vehicle`s bottom, because they are constantly exposed to influence from the road: dirt, rocks and sand that fly off the road right onto the car body, and the wheel arches are the first ones exposed to the harm. Later begins a real chemical attack: salt, which is sprinkled on icy roads in winter, remains during the whole year.

Under the influence of dirt and moisture, chemicals hit the car body at high speed. In order to reflect chemical attacks and to protect this vulnerable part of the machine, experts have designed a wheel niche protecting item – lockers. They are attached to the wheel arches with screws or snaps. Lockers must be inserted into the wheel arches very tightly, with almost no gaps, and completely cover the wheel gap. This will be a test of the polymer quality. Modern lockers are made of special fiberglass or polyethylene, of high durability, elasticity and environmental cleanliness. Because these materials have relatively low thermal conductivity, nothing sticks on them while driving in the winter time.

Consider the fact that the cost of the lockers is significantly less than the amount required for the repair of wheel arches. So, the purchase of protective elements will always be financially justified. Apart from that, lockers are necessary in order to prevent damage to the body elements, and also to give your car a more attractive appearance.
