PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: Pro-gard Product’s New Command Grille
Pro-gard Product’s new Command Grille was engineered to provide First Responders with an alternative lighting solution when situations call for additional exterior lighting. It is configured specifically for the 2020 Ford Police Interceptor Utility and provides full Intersection Coverage when agencies have a no push policy.
The sleek contoured design of the Command Grille provides a perfect platform for the agencies to quickly and easily install highly visible, scene lighting without removing the vehicle’s front fascia. It is custom molded from high impact black UV stable ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) plastic and has been tested to handle extreme elements in any environment. The lightweight structure is manufactured in the USA and weighs less than 10 pounds with the provided light heads installed and weighs only 5 pounds without light heads.
The Command Grille’s low profile design easily mounts to the exterior of the factory grille with two supplied steel coated brackets (both driver and passenger side), studs for the lights, stainless steel mounting hardware and only requires six drill holes for mounting to the vehicle’s original equipment manufacturer (OEM) grille. One of the major benefits of the grille is there is no need to cut holes into the front fascia of the vehicle compromising its integrity. Another benefit is the integrated mounting design does not interfere with visibility while driving nor will it disrupt the airflow into the cooling system.
The Command Grille offers law enforcement officers, firefighters, and even emergency responders with a sleek and alternative option to a push bumper while adding a functional lighting accessory for the grilles of their vehicles. Unlike most larger push bumpers it is only 37.5” wide,10.5” high and merely extends 6” from the front of the OEM grille. Coincidentally the Command Grille does not protrude beyond the front of the vehicle’s fascia and if nosed up to a wall, the bumper will touch first, not the grille.
It is currently offered with or without lights installed. When purchasing the Command Grille without lights, it comes equipped with all provided brackets, backer plates, and mounting hardware. While ordering with the light package, the grille contains all the same brackets and hardware, including four large light heads on the front bar and two small light heads, one on each side. With a total of six lights, (three red/white and or three blue/white) the Command Grille offers plenty of additional exterior light to the front of the 2020 Ford Police Interceptor Utility.
At this time, it is only available with light heads from the following safety light manufactures; Whelen Engineering and SoundOff Signal. When choosing the Whelen light head option, it is installed with six Whelen ION T-series lights. When selecting the Sound Off Signal option, the Command Grille comes with six SoundOff Signal mPower series lights installed. And is available in a variety of options for choosing light head colors. The available light head options are; Red/White (6), Blue/White (6), Red/White, Red/White, Blue/White, Blue/White with side Red/White and Blue/White.
