Discover the latest Ford technologies at Gates and learn how your driving can be enhanced. With a range of intelligent technologies designed to improve safety, comfort and convenience, all drivers can benefit from Ford’s latest innovations. Included amongst the range is the Door Edge Protector that helps drivers avoid costly dents and scratches that can easily occur when car doors are opened in narrow spaces.
First available on the Ford Focus in 2012, it’s the first active system designed to provide a protective barrier for the door edge. Made from a special rubber compound, Door Edge Protector works by releasing a concealed flap that springs into place to provide a soft buffer against dents and scratches on paintwork. When the door is sealed the Door Edge Protector can go unnoticed, concealed against the door frame.
For those who routinely slot their vehicle into tight parking spaces, the Door Edge Protector provides peace of mind as you can open your door without the risk of any damage. As the technology is effective against more than 90 percent of obstructions to front doors and 85 percent to rear doors, it can help drivers save money on costly repairs. It also protects neighbouring cars from dents and scratches to the paintwork and therefore helps drivers avoid awkward conversations with other car owners.
