Narva brings Ultima LED tech to light bar range
Narva has introduced two new LED light bars, the 8-inch Ultima 8 and 24-inch Ultima 24. The bars are designed to function as standalone auxiliary lighting, or in conjunction with Ultima LED MK2 lamps. An optional joiner bracket kit can be purchased at additional cost, allowing multiple bars to be connected and used together to create a 40-inch (two 8-inch light bar plus one 24-inch light bar) or 48-inch bar (two 24-inch light bars).
The Ultima LED light bars produce brilliant natural white light (5700°K) and precise beam control through the combination of precision optics in the form of highly polished, super-efficient aluminium metallised reflectors and precisely scalloped parabolas, while also using 9W OSRAM LEDs, which are among the most powerful on the market.
Ultima 8 is equipped with 15 high-powered LEDs per light bar, delivering a long and wide hybrid beam. A pair of these light bars can provide up to 50m of width at 1 lux, up to 450m, and with a longer distance beam penetration of up to 900m at 1 lux. Narva said this is comparable or better than most 9-inch (pair) driving lights. Ultima 24 offers greater performance with 38 high-powered LEDs, providing an ultra-wide flood beam capable of lighting 95m wide at 1 lux, to 500m ahead, with the long-distance light continuing up to 750m at 1 lux. The Ultima 24 also features Narva’s signature ADR-approved, in-built LED front position light pipe.
Designed, engineered and tested in Australia, 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 integrated DT connector, providing 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. Glass-filled nylon brackets that are lightweight and stronger than die-cast brackets further help durability, while mounting the lamps is simple via tough stainless-steel hardware. Narva is so confident in the long-term performance of the new Ultima LED Light Bar range that it offers an unprecedented 10-year warranty.
Owners can choose from a variety of finishes and trim colour options to create a look that best suits their vehicle.
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 (full wiring harness also available at extra cost), 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 (full wiring harness also available at extra cost), 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 (full wiring harness also available at extra cost), 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,” said McBride.
“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.
