What is allowed and forbidden in roof construction

It is important to note that roof transport in road traffic is subject to legal regulations. These can be found in Section 22 of the Road Traffic Regulation (StVO). The following requirements must fulfill your roof structure:

  1. The cargo must be secured with the usual technical means so that it does not slip or fall even during full braking.
  2. The load must not protrude below a height of 2,5 meters.
  3. The maximum width of the roof load is 2,55 meters.
  4. Vehicle and cargo must not exceed a height of four meters together.
  5. Towards the rear, the load may protrude a maximum of 1,5 meters, however, for transport distances below 100 kilometers, up to three meters are allowed. If the load protrudes more than a meter, additional backlighting must be installed.
