When we originate a new product, we ensure that it matches OE specification. Part of this process involves fit testing components to real world vehicles, where we ensure that our aftermarket product will fit exactly to a vehicle with no modification. Fitting first time helps garages to protect profit margins on a job by minimising the amount of time a vehicles sits on the ramp. It also means customers are kept happy thanks to swift reliable turnaround times.
An emissions component that doesn’t fit properly or doesn’t have the correct back pressure [they are out there – from other manufacturers] can greatly damage the efficiency and performance of a vehicle. In most cases, a vehicle fitted with such a component will also fail the emissions segment of the M.O.T test, resulting in the vehicle being declared unroadworthy until the component is replaced and the vehicle re-tested. Klarius measures back pressure and fit tests every emissions device to avoid this situation happening with our products.
Fittings and mountings
Achieving perfect fitment isn’t just about the design of the device, mountings are just as important. Klarius offers OE quality fitting kits for all of its aftermarket emissions products, incorporating clamps, brackets, clips and fasteners in either durable metal or heat resistant rubber materials. This ensures that the durability of your exhaust, CAT, DPF or pipes are preserved by using secure fittings and gaskets to deliver long-term reliability and performance.
