TOP-RAIL

TOP-RAIL®

TOP-RAIL is also a development made by BRANDRUP and was the first system for vehicles without serial rain water gutter on the world market in 1992.
The complex benefits and advantages that TOP-RAIL offers have not been toped by any other product.
The stylish and perfect rain water gutter and fixing rail is also available for the VW T6/T5.
Water flows off perfectly and practically over the windscreen even with a tent attached to the vehicle.
TOP-RAIL installed on both sides reduces the common noise of the airstream that occurs at higher speeds whilst travelling.
Contrary to the VW T4, it is not allowed to attach carriers to the VW T6/T5.
All further advantages of TOP-RAIL T4 remain.
Design: "Carbon".
Made in Germany.

TOP-RAIL® VW T6/T5

The aluminium profile TOP-RAIL T6/T5 has been preformed for the bodywork of the VW T6/T5 and can therefore only be fixed to these vehicles.
Assembly on the T6/T5 California is possible, however, Volkswagen AG does not yet allow the removal of the serial rail.

Perfect rain water gutter and best mounting rail for awnings and tents

TOP-RAIL can be fixed to both sides of the vehicle and offers very good protection for the cabin, side windows and all doors during rain.

The rain water gutter is ideal for bar clamp fixing (tents/awnings): the low fit and the inwardly shaped rain gutter guarantee secure footing; for TOP-RAIL no further adapter is required.

Attaching an awning with piping is ideal:

The entrance resistence to the rail has been reduced to a minimum due to its asymetric perfile. Also perfect for alcoves and integrated vehicles.
An awning can be easily attached using the piping rail even if a roof load carrier is fixed onto the TOP-RAIL T4.

The front spoiler directs water running down from the roof onto the windscreen.

The rain water cannot flow between or over the aluminium rail and spoiler. When stationary, the spoiler directs the water onto the windscreen and not lateraly down the A pillar onto the cabin doors.

TOP-RAIL reduces wind noises caused by the pop-up roof. At high speed (approx. 140 km/h), it is notably more quiet in the inside. All TOP-RAIL T6/T5/T4 systems offer these advantages.

Exclusively made for TOP-RAIL: excellent universal brand roof racks.

They produce less wind resistance and less intrusive noise than usual roof carriers for vehicles without a rain water gutter.
For all vehicles with flatt roofs (tin roofs) the supporting leg is approx. 14 cm high.

Attachment of roof racks

Safe and easy fixing for good quality roof racks with supporting legs for rain water gutter.

Can be removed easily when the roof has to be opened.

Safety is of paramount importance to us, therefore TOP-RAIL T4 has completed and passed all relevant safety tests - mandatory and voluntary.
TOP-RAIL can only be used as a holder for roof carriers on a VW T4 and only if it is attached to both sides of the vehicle.

You can identify the original rail by the safety label, the “TOP-RAIL” badge and the BRANDRUP dolphin logo as well as the writing “BRANDRUP Made in Germany“ on the front spoiler.

For all VW T4 vehicles with pop-up roof the supporting leg is approx. 20 cm high.
