Automotive lighting specialist Narva has an announced it has launched two new LED light bars that it says have been designed to function both as standalone auxiliary lighting, or in conjunction with Narva’s Ultima LED MK2 lamps.
Narva introduced its Ultima LED range several years ago and recently refined its offering to improve performance and durability with the Ultima LED MK2.
The company claims the new LED light bar package will provide the benefits of the Ultima MK2 lamps with either the 8 inch ‘Ultima 8’ or the 24 inch ‘Ultima 24’.
Narva claims the bars provide much greater lighting volume and penetration, while an optional joiner bracket kit can also be purchased at an additional cost, allowing multiple bars to be connected and used together to create a 40 inch (2x 8 inch light bar plus 1x 24 inch light bar) or a 48 inch bar (2x 24inch light bars).
The Ultima LED Light Bars produce brilliant natural white light at 5700°K as well as precise beam control through the combination of precision optics in the form of highly polished, super-efficient aluminium metalised reflectors and precisely scalloped parabolas, while also using 9W OSRAM LEDs, which are among the most powerful on the market, according to Narva.
The Ultima 8 uses 15 high-powered LEDs per bar and delivers a long and wide hybrid beam.
Narva says that a pair of the light bars can provide up to 50m of width at 1 lux, all the way up to 450m, and with a longer distance beam penetration of up to 900m at 1 lux, which it says is comparable or better than most 9 inch (pair) driving lights.
The Ultima 24 offers higher performance with 38 high-powered LEDs, providing an ultra-wide flood beam capable of lighting 95m wide at 1 lux, all the way to 500m, with the long distance light continuing up to 750m at 1 lux says Narva.
The company says the Ultima 24 features Narva’s signature ADR-approved, in-built LED front position light pipe.
Narva says the lights are designed, engineered and tested in Australia, and the Ultima LED Light Bar range is constructed from a strong, single piece, pressure die-cast aluminium housing that is sealed to IP68 and IP69K with an integrated DT connector, providing uncompromised ingress protection, strength and durability.
The light bars feature UV-resistant, hard-coated polycarbonate lenses and covers to protect against stone chips and yellowing, ensuring ongoing performance and good looks. Durability further enhanced with glass-filled nylon brackets that are both lightweight and stronger than die-cast brackets, the company claims. It says that mounting the lamps is also simple via stainless-steel hardware and is so confident in the long-term performance of the new Light Bar range that it is offering a 10-year warranty.
Along with the ability to combine the Ultima LED Light Bars to create a light bar system to suit operator needs, buyers can choose from a variety of finishes and trim colour options to create a look that best suits their vehicle.
Narva says the Ultima LED Light Bar range offers a variety of bezels and lens protector options. The Ultima 24 ‘Satin’ kit includes Ultima LED Light Bar with satin bezel, clear lens protector, four colour trims (blue, black, red and yellow),a 6 pin DT patch harness* and stainless-steel mounting hardware. The Ultima 24 ‘Black’ kit includes Ultima LED light bar with black bezel, black ‘stealth’ lens protector, three colour trims (Slate grey, Electric blue and Hyper green), a 6pin DT patch harness* and stainless-steel mounting hardware.
The respective Ultima 8 kits feature the same basic content but double quantity on account of each kit includes two light bars. The wiring harness is also different, with 2x 4pin DT harness* being used rather than a 6pin.
Narva marketing manager, Dale McBride, said the Ultima LED Light Bar range highlighted the brand’s commitment to innovation and continuous improvement.
“The Ultima LED Driving Light range quickly gained an outstanding reputation following its release and has become well known for its superior lighting performance and tough engineering – this combination has seen it become a favoured lamp for extremely demanding applications such as high kilometre commercial vehicle work, competitive off-road motorsports and for agricultural duties,” Dale said.
“We believe the new Ultima LED Light Bars will be well received in the market by both existing customers and first time Narva buyers.”
Narva’s Ultima LED Light Bars and accessories are available nationwide from leading automotive, four wheel drive and transportation outlets.
