Alu-Cab's heavy-duty hardtops are unique on the market in many ways. Since the 1990s, when Alu-Cab built the first aluminum hardtop, the South African manufacturer's own travel experiences have been incorporated into the design. Three factors were critical to its success: weight, strength, versatility.

The challenge was to find a solution that was a combination of these three factors.

Aside from the obvious strength/weight advantages, aluminum is ideal for unrestricted use because of its unmatched corrosion resistance, UV stability and flexibility - essential properties in any off-road environment.

The hardtops are available in different colors and in different structures: black/silver, tread plate/smooth
