Here at RRT, our expert cage fabrication team have been constructing safety cages for over 15 years. We have fabricated these essential safety devices for NASA, SCCA, AER, GRAND-AM, BMWCCA, Lemons, Chump Cars, Rally cars, and many other series. We will also not only build a cage to minimum specifications, but take into consideration what the best options to protect the driver and co-driver’s are. Your safety is our primary concern.

Cage fabrication is much more involved than just bending some tubing and doing a little bit of welding. RRT always takes the time to ensure proper stress loads and bar intersections. Roll cages can change vehicle handling dynamics and an improperly designed cage can actually do more harm than good in the event of an impact. Each cage is custom to ensure that harness bar height, seating position, and tubing positions are perfect for each individual person and vehicle. We do not utilize ‘cookie cutter’ designs where one size fits all. We take a great deal of pride in the final product that we produce and we would love the opportunity to show what we can do for you.

Things you need to know:

The purpose of a roll cage is to protect the driver. That is the only function that should never be compromised on. However, this is not the only benefit of a cage. The addition of a roll cage increase structural stiffness, a.k.a. chassis rigidity, provides mounting points for equipment, and can alter the overall weight and dynamics of a vehicle. Although these are all important, the driver’s safety comes first and RRT Racing will never compromise that.

There are several different types of materials available. Some racing organizations limit the choices, but for the most part mild steel DOM and chrome-moly tubing are the two biggest options out there. We typically use DOM tubing for a number of different reasons, but the materials choice is tailored to the specific application.

It used to be that all cars were made of steel and almost anything could be welded, upgraded or modified. Newer car present a variety of challenges. One of which is that many newer cars may be constructed of fiberglass, carbon fiber, aluminum or another composite material. We have experience developing solutions to these problems. For example, our E63 M6 track car features an aluminum firewall and we had to create a one-off solution to properly and safely install the cage.

Although paintwork is one of the few things we do not do in house, we do have trusted connections at excellent paint shops. Whether you just want the classic black bars or perhaps body color tubing or even a full interior respray, RRT Racing can handle the entire project so that you receive your car completed and ready to go.

Maybe. We will not build onto any component that we deem unsafe so a full inspection will be required before a quote. However, we have many customers that start with just a roll bar and evolve into a full cage at a later date. If we know this is the plan then we will design in features to make this easier down the road. Conversely, if we rule out this option, we can design in features on a basic roll bar that make it more comfortable for the driver.

Welded cages offer better protection and design options than bolt in designs. However this doesn’t not mean bolt-in designs are automatically ruled out. Every design has it place and our experts here at RRT Racing will be happy to discuss your need to find the best solution for you.
