Shielder Chassis pioneered a single metal skinned bulkhead design throughout, as opposed to double skinning found in areas of the original Land Rover bulkhead.
Here we will detail the problem resolved and benefits provided through our unique design:
The original double skin bulkheads have inherent corrosion problems caused by putting sheet metal on top of sheet metal (double skinning) allowing moisture to soak between the two metal layers. Especially prevalent in the foot-box area.
New bulkheads copying the OEM construction and original design will also be subject to corrosion for the same reason.
You may ask; Will galvanising resolve this issue? No, not with this design.
Below is an image of a brand new double skin bulkhead that has been through the galvanising process.
