Narva brings Ultima LED tech to new light bar range

Several years ago, Narva revolutionised the driving light market when it introduced its Ultima LED range. More recently, Narva refined its offering to provide improved performance and durability with the release of Ultima LED MK2.

Now Narva is providing the many benefits of the Ultima MK2 lamps in an LED light bar package with the introduction of two new light bars, the 8 inch ‘Ultima 8’ and 24 inch ‘Ultima 24’. The bars are designed to function both as standalone auxiliary lighting, or in conjunction with Ultima LED MK2 lamps, for truly amazing lighting volume and penetration. An optional joiner bracket kit can also be purchased at an additional cost, allowing multiple bars to be connected and used together to create a 40 inch (2x 8 inch light bar plus 1x 24 inch light bar) or 48 inch bar (2x 24 inch light bars).

The Ultima LED Light Bars produce brilliant natural white light (5700°K) and precise beam control through the combination of precision optics in the form of highly polished, super-efficient aluminium metalised reflectors and precisely scalloped parabolas, while also using 9W OSRAM LEDs, which are among the most powerful on the market. 

The Ultima 8 is equipped with 15 high-powered LEDs per light bar, delivering a long and wide hybrid beam. A pair of these light bars can provide up to 50m of width at 1 lux, all the way up to 450m, and with a longer distance beam penetration of up to 900m at 1 lux – this is comparable or even better than most 9 inch (pair) driving lights. The Ultima 24 offers even greater performance with 38 high-powered LEDs, providing an amazing ultra-wide flood beam capable of lighting 95m wide at 1 lux, all the way to 500m ahead, with the long distance light continuing up to 750m at 1 lux. The Ultima 24 also features Narva’s signature ADR-approved, in-built LED front position light pipe.   

Built to last

Designed, engineered and tested in Australia, the Ultima LED Light Bar range is constructed from a super strong, single piece, pressure die-cast aluminium housing that is sealed to IP68 and IP69K with integrated DT connector, providing uncompromised ingress protection, strength and durability. 

Additionally, the light bars feature UV-resistant, hard-coated polycarbonate lenses and covers to protect against stone chips and yellowing, ensuring ongoing performance and good looks. Further helping durability is glass-filled nylon brackets that are lightweight and stronger than die-cast brackets, while mounting the lamps is simple via tough stainless-steel hardware. Narva is so confident in the long-term performance of the new Ultima LED Light Bar range that they are offering an unprecedented 10-year warranty.

Design a custom look

Along with the ability to combine the Ultima LED Light Bars to create a light bar system to suit operator needs, owners can choose from a variety of finishes and trim colour options to create a look that best suits their vehicle.

The Ultima LED Light Bar range offers a variety of bezels and lens protector options. The Ultima 24 ‘Satin’ kit includes Ultima LED Light Bar with satin bezel, clear lens protector, four colour trims (blue, black, red and yellow), a 6 pin DT patch harness* and stainless-steel mounting hardware. The Ultima 24 ‘Black’ kit includes Ultima LED light bar with black bezel, black ‘stealth’ lens protector, three colour trims (slate grey, electric blue and hyper green), a 6 pin DT patch harness* and stainless-steel mounting hardware. 

The respective Ultima 8 kits feature the same basic content but double quantity on account of each kit including two light bars. The wiring harness is also different, with 2x 4pin DT harness* being used rather than a 6pin. 

Narva marketing manager, Dale McBride, says the Ultima LED Light Bar range highlighted the brand’s commitment to innovation and continuous improvement.

“The Ultima LED Driving Light range quickly gained an outstanding reputation following its release and has become well known for its superior lighting performance and tough engineering – this combination has seen it become a favoured lamp for extremely demanding applications such as high kilometre commercial vehicle work, competitive off-road motorsports and for agricultural duties,” McBride said.

“We believe the new Ultima LED Light Bars will be well received in the market by both existing customers and first time Narva buyers.”      

Narva’s Ultima LED Light Bars and accessories are available nationwide from leading automotive, four-wheel drive and transportation outlets.
