ALTAÏR RIB units supplied by NWCC for the VWT5/T6 are complete with a very versatile 220mm sliding mechanism to offer even more versatility & practicality; Creating a larger boot space, bringing rear passengers closer to the front of the vehicle. Also each unit comes standard with Integrated Headrests.

The RIB seating systems are installed in conjunction with our galvanised fixation frame work, offering huge strength to the floor pan. Designed to offset any collision forces back to the vehicles main chassis members. The location of the rear bolts within the RIB frame line up exactly with the horizontal rear chassis members of the VW Transporter; This allows for maximum strength in the event of a collision. The fixation frame work has been specifically designed to bolt directly into a number of the vehicles horizontal & vertical chassis members, when the RIB frame is then fitted from above the bolts fall into the locations within the fixation frame. This all ensures that in the event of a collision the pressure is directed through the bolts in the frame and projected back through to the vehicles main chassis members, Ensuring the safety of all passengers.
