Guest Blog - Peter from 4WD Adventurer - EVA Foam Jerry Can Holder
In this post we review the EVA foam jerry can mount (or holder) for the Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform manufactured in Brisbane, Australia by SVNTY6.
Any 4WD Adventurer will need to carry at least one jerry can for additional fuel or water and finding the right storage mounting solution can be difficult with the range of products out there.
We decided to go with the SVNTY6 EVA foam jerry can mount (holder) for the Rhino Rack Pioneer Platform that is manufactured here in Brisbane, Australia. We have had great success with the other SVNTY6 Pioneer Platform mounting accessories and 70 Series Toyota Land Cruiser accessories. We discuss why we chose the SVNTY6 foam jerry can mount and how well it has worked for us while touring in the Australian outback as well as many other adventures.
What is EVA foam? EVA is the acronym for ethylene-vinyl acetate. It is also known as expanded rubber or foam rubber and has many uses in all sorts of products. It is used as a substitute in production for a range of other materials due to several benefits gained by using EVA foam over other materials especially in certain conditions. Here are the conditions and benefits of using EVA foam products:
- Impact absorption when experiencing high vibrations.
- High UV resistance for the hot Australian climate.
- Low water absorption with waterproof properties – no mould or mildew.
- High strength and tear resistance.
- Will not rust.
The SVNTY6 foam jerry can mount (holder) has been precision CNC cut out of EVA foam sheeting with an 85kg / M3 density.
There are many other benefits of using a SVNTY6 EVA foam jerry can mount (holder) for the Pioneer Platform over traditional steel ones. These benefits are explored in greater detail on the 4WD Adventurer blog post and include;
- Impact and vibration absorption
- Weather and water resistance
- Less noise (than other common alternatives)
- Cheaper option than steel alternatives
- Light weight
