  • The Pommier lateral protections (DPL) approval number is marked on the end pieces, P/N 3120286.
    Every end piece is marked with the PCP and PCB approval numbers and the Pommier logo.
  • Pommier offers 2 data sheets for lateral protection systems (DPL): types PCP and PCB.    
    PCP = DPL for under-floor mounting, for vehicles such as vans, refrigerated and similar. 
    PCB = DPL for mounting on subframe, for vehicles such as tippers, tankers, etc.
  • Yes, all Pommier lateral protection systems are approved ECE 73-01. To correspond to a Pommier type PCP or PCB data sheet, all components (brackets, strips, end pieces and mountings, except for standard fasteners) must be purchased from Pommier.
  • Pommier proposes two solutions. The alloy lateral protection strips can be mounted using plastic pads 3110403 or using square-head screws 1636733VI.
    Pommier plastic pad 3110403 allows standard (commercial) screws to be used.
  • No, it’s not possible. In such a case, you will have to have your assembly approved by a competent authority and use your own data sheet.
  • POMMIER DPL data sheets are available on the Pommier Web site, in the section Approval / Data sheet for product concerned.
    You must log in on the Pommier Web site, with your customer identifiers, to access this section.
  • The Pommier lateral protection end piece design in 3 separate parts provides considerable flexibility. The alloy part 3110476 (HT 513 mm) can simply be cut to the desired height.
  • It’s version 03 of regulation N° 58 of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (CEE-ONU) – Unified directives relating to the approval of rear under-run protection systems (BAE)
  • Delegated regulation (UE) 2015/208 of the Commission of 8 December 2014, completing European parliament and Council (UE) regulation N° 167/2013, concerning directives relating to vehicle functional safety, for the approval of agricultural and forestry vehicles, in particular concerning rear under-run protection systems (BAE)
  • Under-run bars are supplied complete, without the chassis mounting screws, available as an option.
  • Our strip accepts all types of lights. It is supplied without holes drilled. Only strictly necessary holes should be drilled. The mounting holes must be suitable for the screws, the hole for routing the cable must be 5 mm larger than that of the connector.
  • The number of possible combinations (vehicle + accessories + body type) is infinite. You should check the feasibility yourself by downloading the 3D and the installation instructions.
  • Installation instructions can be downloaded from our Web site
  • The data sheets can be downloaded from our Web site
  • The approval report is confidential and is not available. However, on request, we can send it to the official authority (DREAL for example), which can request it directly from us.
  • Yes, depending on the model, when the bar is positioned. In general, the part of the arms protruding beyond the plate, and the part of the plate protruding beyond the arms do not contribute to the mechanical strength of our under-run bars, and can be cut off, in accordance with the installation instructions.
  • Yes, providing the vehicle is category G, off-road or cross country vehicles, or weight not exceeding 8 t.
  • Grade 10.9 minimum. For the quantity, refer to the documentation.
  • Depending on the type of bar, it is authorised. See the documentation for greater detail.
  • I/V is the modulus of inertia. It’s a physical value related to the quadratic moment, used in the strength of materials to determine the maximum bending stress applied to a section of flexing beam.
    It’s the quotient of the moment of inertia (I) by the distance of the extreme fibre at the axis passing through the centre of gravity (V).
  • The quadratic moment is a value that describes the geometry of a section and is defined in relation to an axis or a point. It is expressed in the international system in m4 (metres to the power of 4). It expresses the relation to a point or to an axis, in particular to define the strength or distortion capability of a material.
    The quadratic moment is used in materials’ strength. It is essential for the computing of the strength and distortion of beams subjected to torsion (IG) and bending (Ix and Iy) loads. In fact, the strength of a section loaded along a given axis varies with its quadratic moment along that axis.
  • It’s the modulus of inertia (I/V) multiplied by the elastic limit of the material (Re)
  • All R58-03 under-run bars in our range are treated by cataphoresis, except for the XFIX P701AE, which is left raw as it is to be welded.
  • Yes. On under-run bars XFIX P61, XFIX S71, XFIX P70 and XLIFT P41, the round and square tube mounting clamps can be replaced by welding. This is mentioned in the installation documentation. Unless mentioned, it isn’t possible.
  • Yes, the under-run bar mounting screw kits are available as an option. See the documentation and catalogue.
  • Yes, providing the minimum of 100 mm remains on each side, measured between the inner faces of the tyres (not counting any tyre swelling due to ground contact). See installation documentation.
  • Under-run bars XPAND P42, XLIFT P72 and XFOLD P58 are assimilated to a quasi-machine and meet the essential requirements of the following sections of the machine directive: 1.1.3/ 1.1.5/ 1.2.6/ 1.3.1/1.3.6/ 1.5.3/ 1.5.8/ 1.5.9/ 1.6/ 1.7.
  • Yes, a user manual is available for non-fixed under-run bars. It is supplied with the under-run bar. It can also be downloaded from our Web site, in the “User documentation” section.
    This document should be given to the under-run bar user, who should keep it.
  • The min. and max. hydraulic pressures differ, depending on the dual valve model. These values are indicated in the installation documentation.
