UTV Roll Cages

Manufacturers are geared more towards passing ROPS certification that anything else. ROPS stands for Roll Over Protection Structure and refers to operator compartment structures (cab) intended to protect equipment operators and motorists from injuries caused by vehicle overturns. ROPS structures are defined by various regulatory agencies, including the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The regulations include both a strength requirement as well as an energy absorption requirement of the structure.

Standards for ROPS design and utilization for tractors were first developed in 1967 by the American Society for Agricultural Engineers.  The tests are outdated for today’s UTVs, but it is the standard to which manufacturers must meet.

Consequently, you will see some interesting designs in many of today’s UTVs.  Many enthusiasts choose to replace factory cages for an aftermarket roll cage.  Many of these aftermarket cages not only increase safety by using stronger tube and additional cross bracing, but also improve the style of the vehicle.
