What is spray suppression and why is it important?

What is spray suppression?

Spray suppression is simply the use of equipment, such as mudflaps and mudguards, to reduce the amount of road spray when using your vehicle. But why exactly is it so important, and is it worth the investment?

Why is it important?

There are many useful properties of spray suppression equipment that absolutely make it a great investment. The first and perhaps the most obvious benefit is that other road users will be far less likely to experience loss of vision as a result of spray from your vehicle. Additionally, spray suppression will help to prevent pedestrians within close proximity of your vehicle from being hit by gravel and debris. These two benefits contribute to the increased safety of you and those around you while you’re driving.

Spray suppression equipment is also very useful for keeping your vehicle clean, reducing the amount of times you’ll need to get your vehicle washed, as well as preventing the paint on your vehicle from being damaged. These benefits mean there’s a good chance you’ll be saving both time and money later down the line.

Suppression of road spray is especially important in snowy and rainy climates where spray tends to be more of a problem – and as we all know, we’re particularly prone to this type of weather here in the UK!

So, yes – all in all, spray suppression equipment is definitely worth the investment, particularly here at Albert Jagger where you’ll receive excellent quality for money.
