CARRY YOUR WORLD HAS A WHOLE NEW MEANING
Introducing the All-New Leitner ACS ROOF Platform Rack & ACS GearPOD ROOF. Leitner’s first platform rack, and GearPOD ROOF, the world’s first side-opening rooftop storage box. The pair extend Leitner Designs’ leading cargo-carrying design engineering beyond the truck bed to any vehicle with a roof, enabling anyone to smartly and securely carry their most valuable gear no matter what kind of vehicle they own. The ACS ROOF and GearPOD ROOF together represent the only integrated ROOFtop storage system with a platform rack and dedicated rooftop cargo box from the same brand.
Leitner Designs Active Cargo System (ACS) ROOF is unique in the segment because of its infinitely adjustable load bars. Unlike traditional platform racks, the structural rigidity of Leitner Designs ROOF comes from its exterior frame, not the longitudinal load bars. This enables users to add as many or as few load bars as they like — even when ACS ROOF is installed on their vehicle.
With the turn of a few Leitner-branded torx bolts, owners can slide the load bars in a multitude of arrangements, front to rear, thanks to the patented mounting system. ACS ROOF has toothed channels that run the exterior of the rack rather than bolts that run through the exterior frame in a fixed position. The load bars clamp to these toothed channels, creating an adjustable but incredibly secure mounting solution.
In addition to being fully adjustable along the length of the rack, ACS ROOF load bars are twice as wide and twice as strong as the competition; each ACS ROOF load bar is 4.0 inches wide and 1.2 inches tall and features two T-slots (most platform racks feature just one t-slot). The load bars are formed from 1.5mm to 3.0mm multi-wall thickness aluminum — more than twice as thick as other platform racks on the market.
Securely mounting and wiring rooftop accessories, like auxiliary lighting, is easier and cleaner than ever with ACS ROOF. Unlike traditional platform racks, which force users to attach wiring to the rack externally, ACS ROOF’s corner caps can be removed while the rack is installed. The corner caps feature passthrough holes that allow users to run wiring along the inside of the exterior extrusion rails. Running wiring inside the extrusion protects the wiring and eliminates the need for unsightly zip ties.
Leitner also created a version of the platform rack compatible with the brand’s ACS Forged bed racks, called ACS Platform. It’s compatible with all of Leitner Designs’ ACS Forged bed racks and replaces the standard top rails. ACS Platform both lowers the overall height of the ACS Forged (compared to running an auxiliary rack atop the load bars) and increases overall structural rigidity — something racks from other manufacturers can’t.
