To facilitate access to vehicles with high ground clearance such as Jeeps, SUVs and others, side-steps are installed under the doors.
Electrically powered versions are available that automatically unfold when the door is opened, then refold flush to the vehicle body to improve ground clearance and reduce aerodynamic drag.
Corrosion resistance was a major factor in selection of the bearings since they would have to operate in all types of weather and harsh conditions such as temperature extremes, water, snow, ice, dust, dirt and mud. With their non-metallic structure and low water absorption, GGB injection-molded engineered plastics EP®43 flanged bearings are mounted in the pivot points of the folding mechanism.
The benefits of using self-lubricating maintenance-free EP®43 flanged bearings are:
