Atera SIGNO ASR carrier - 110cm AR2110 (includes...


Atera SIGNO cross bars are available, as a complete package, either in plastic coated galvanized steel or in aluminium.

These steel bars present a particularly low profile - only 40mm from the centre of the rail to the top of the roof bar - and are very easy to adjust and use.

Other features:

  • Modern design; they look good and feel good
  • There's real attention to detail, e.g. there are rubber strips to cut and place into the slots in the base of the bar to minimise wind noise, a feature not seen in other systems
  • The recessed lock is intrinsically much more secure than having an external lock. The right hand picture shows the special tensioning device / key in place
  • The clamps stay in position when the bars are removed, so there's no need for frequent readjustment
  • The clamps have an 'extra wide' setting for use on extra wide roof rails, making them truly universal for roof rails
  • The bars are available as a separate item should you move to a vehicle of significantly different width
  • Weight 4.7kg
  • Load carrying weight 100kg but be guided by the maximum permitted roof loading limit of your vehicle!
  • Roof bar dimensions 32mm wide by 22mm deep

Most of Atera's roof bars and accessories business is with the Original Equipment market, i.e. direct to the car manufacturers, where major customers include Audi, BMW, Daewoo, Chrysler, Fiat, Honda, Mitsubishi, Mercedes, Opel, Subaru, Suzuki, Vauxhall and Volkswagen. Atera’s reputation therefore speaks for itself and, (probably needless to say), all their products are TUV certified and quality approved to ISO 9001.

As an arm twister, a thank you for buying from us, and to show off these incredibly useful products, we'll include one free Fasty HANDY with every set of bars you buy, while stocks last - see pop up link for details.

The aim of this note is to persuade you that kayaks should always be tied to the carrying vehicle at both bow and stern.

Always tie down at both bow and stern

Untied kayaks have, in our experience, the greatest potential for a roof bar or kayak carrier failure. The massive forces that untied kayaks can generate have even been known to snap roof bar fixing bolts with the result that a complete assembly of roof bars and kayaks has ended up on the road. We know that this has happened with almost every brand of roof bar, and regardless of whether the kayaks are on a special carrier or just strapped to the bars.

You need to fix bow and stern lines, probably using the front and rear screw-in towing eyes to get strong and accessible fixing points on the vehicle. Kayak shops should be able to provide suitable 'paracord' for this purpose. Alternatively, we have sets of straps available that are perfect for the job and are really easy to use. Yakima make some excellent Bow/Stern tie down straps and Thule makes the QuickDraw 838 which we have listed together with every kayak carrier we sell.

Please note that kayaks should be strapped to the roof bars, or to kayak carriers, using straps that are suitable for the purpose, e.g. 25mm polypropylene straps with strong buckles. Bungee cords must never be used.

Please also note that all roof bar instructions point out the dangers of carrying unsecured long items, as of course do all kayak carrier instructions.

If you tie down your kayaks properly you almost certainly won't experience a product failure. If you don't you may or may not get away with it. If there is a disaster and the kayaks end up on the road, separated from the vehicle, then you were not using tie downs and you have subjected the roof bars to forces for which they were not designed. The costs of sorting this out are yours, not ours, and you may also have difficulties with your insurers.

We're sorry to be so firm about this, but "things coming off the tops of cars" is the stuff of nightmares, and we want to do all we can to prevent accidents of this sort from happening.
