Shielder have been manufacturing bulkheads for years. With nearing 4000 units manufactured our machining and assembly processes are refined and matured, producing accurate fitting bulkheads.
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.
With years of bulkhead manufacturing experience, we are confident our bulkheads will fit and restore your Land Rover.
