Quality Matters


Quality Matters

Bulkheads Re-Engineered Specifically For Galvanising

Shielder set out to manufacture new bulkheads that could be galvanised, as galvanising greatly extends the life of a metal product.

To achieve this Shielder needed to re-engineer specific sections found on the original bulkheads. The problem is, original bulkheads are double platted (sheet metal layered on top of sheet metal) in the footwells and across the middle of the bulkhead, above the transmission tunnel.

The double platting does not allow the bulkhead to be properly galvanised and instead leads to early product failure.

To overcome this problem and ensure a bulkhead can be properly galvanised Shielder re-engineered the bulkhead to have no double platted sections.

Our design is unique, and no other bulkhead on the market offers this.

Shielder bulkheads are manufactured from thicker sheet steel than the original bulkheads, 1.5mm verses 1mm. The outcome is a stronger bulkhead that can be properly galvanised with no negative impact.


Kind Words From Our Customers

We appreciate your kind words and feedback. Thank you.

Very good quality

Bought a chassis and bulkhead two months ago. Undercarriage, engine and gearbox fitted now and all holes lined up perfectly. Very good quality and the company is very easy to deal with.

Thomas O Shaughnessy

Highly Recommend

Shielder Chassis are a brilliant Company to deal with. We have purchased a galvanised chassis, front bulkhead and bolt kit for our 200Tdi. Fantastic quality, price and workmanship on both items and each bag in the bolt kit is labelled for easy identification. Paul and his family & team are lovely genuine people who are always available for advice and technical support. They go over and beyond from initial enquiry to sales and delivery. Their aftersales care is second to none and we would highly recommend them.
