Popup roof - Lifting roof

Hubdach Laavu

LAAVU means windbreak in the Sami language and points directly to the features and shape of the lifting roof.

Designed using CAD, the popup roof turns your Defender into a true touring vehicle.
Its large opening of 120 cm creates a pleasant feeling of space and comfortable freedom of movement.

The lifting roof consists of 2 frames made of high-strength aluminium profiles, which are connected stably and tightly with a polymer hinge from the truck sector. The original vehicle roof is adapted and screwed onto the upper frame.

The vehicle height increases by only 14cm.

The LAAVU lifting roof has an additional mechanical lifting support by means of vertical gas springs, which supports an opening from the first centimetres. A loaded pop-up roof can thus be opened and closed with ease. The gas struts can be adjusted to the roof load.

A robust canopy made of Airtex fabric is mounted between the two frames. Airtex is dirt-repellent (Teflon), fungicidal and cold-resistant down to -25 C°.
All windows are equipped with high-quality, firmly sewn-in mosquito nets.

The lifting roof frame is constructed in accordance with TÜV standards and the assembly is carried out professionally at our premises. Among other things, the frame is screwed 4-fold into the B-pillar.
