ACARI Makes Your Fleet Safer & Smarter

ACARI Fleet Solutions (AFS) are designed for fleets, plows, first responders, public works and more. Their mission is to make it easy to upfit your fleet and keep it safe with all-in-one, streamlined solutions.

Officer Safety

ACARI Fleet Solutions bring vehicle warning lights to the eye level of on-coming traffic. This keeps both officers and civilians safe in an emergency. Warning lights are programmable for any situation.

Save Time & Money

While the ACARI Mount is relatively simple to install, consider having the installation of lights and additional parts added by a skilled technician at LEHR. This will ensure your warranty is not voided during the installation process.

ACARI Rooftop Mounting Platform


ACARI’s rooftop mounting platform allows you to add accessories such as emergency vehicle lights, auxiliary lights, cameras, antennas and more.

ACARI Drill-Free rooftop mount platforms are available in three sizes and the following model numbers correspond with the length:
  1. 22” = RTM-101 
  2. 28” = RTM-201

ACARI Mounting Kits 

Mounting kits are available for most pickup trucks.


ACARI Rooftop Mount Series

ACARI Mounts come in four different series. All series include ACARI’s innovative drill-free design that can easily be installed and removed without damage to your vehicle.

ACARI 01 Series

The ACARI RTM 01 Series includes the original ACARI Drill-Free mount that has proven to be tough and reliable. The ACARI 01 Series is manufactured in high-quality 6063 anodized aluminum with high-impact ABS end caps. 

The ACARI rooftop mounting system securely attaches to the roof of the cab with the innovative clamp and gasket system connecting through the third brake light opening. The mount can be easily removed and the vehicle returned to its original condition.

ACARI Low Profile (LP) Series

The ACARI LP Series is the best-selling mount. It’s made of high grade aluminum and features a UV protected black satin powder coat finish. The patented Low Profile design is built to make your job easier with zero damage to your vehicle.

Unlike the original 01 series, ACARI LP mounts come without the heavy upper deck, end caps and gaskets. The low profile design only sits about 1.15” above the cab. The redesigned top has a reduced weight and cuts down on installation time. 

ACARI Capper Series

The ACARI Capper Series is a light weight, low profile design that has a slimmed down third brake light bezel. Like the LP series, it’s made of high grade aluminum and features the UV protected black satin powder coat finish. 

The Capper’s simple drill-free mounting design shortens installation time. It’s perfect for work trucks that utilize cab height toppers. 

ACARI TT Series

The ACARI TT Series is the latest sleek drill-free design that gives you even more options when fitting your vehicle. The new mono-body shape makes mounting rooftop accessories simple and cost-effective. 

The TT series offers a new installation process that’s faster and easier than ever. 


ACARI Fleet Series (AFS)

With over 40 years of experience in emergency warning systems, ACARI offers a new look at how emergency lighting is seen from both the officer and civilian point of perspective.

ACARI set out to improve the emergency lighting industry by combining their innovative rooftop mount brackets, with industry-leading LED lighting, and thus the ACARI Fleet Series (AFS) was born. 

The AFS is made up of new and unique products designed to make fleets safer and smarter with all around effective solutions that make it easy to up-fit your emergency vehicles. 

Vi Series

Distracted driving is one of the main causes of accidents for public safety professionals. The Vi Series from ACARI is aimed to address distracted driving by creating a mounting space for eye level warning aimed at getting driver’s eyes off their phone and back on the road.

The Vi Series comes standard as tri-color, which allows for a variety of custom patterns, but other color variables may be available upon request. 

Installation is simple. ACARI drill-free mount designs were created to help get your fleet back on the road quicker, without unnecessary drilling on your emergency vehicles.

ACARI Mount Installation

ACARI Drill-Free mounts were built to save you time and get your fleet back on the road faster. 

ACARI’s patented clamping system makes for a simplified installation process. No need to remove your vehicle’s headliner, since all wiring can be routed through the existing third brake light opening, and no need for drill holes for mounts or wiring. 

Installation of a mourning platform takes about 30 minutes. A printed installation guide is included with each unit.

ACARI FAQs

Why isn’t there a mount kit available for my vehicle?

The ACARI Drill-Free mounting platform is available for a limited type of vehicles since it has been custom designed to fit the unique size of vehicle cab, roof contours, third brake light angles and interior structures.

Can I mount a full size lightbar to the ACARI rooftop mount?

The weight limit on the platform is 30 lbs. ACARI does not recommend mounting any accessories that reach over the length of the platform by more than 6” on either side.

Can I use a magnetic mounted accessory with the ACARI Platform?

No, the traditional platform is made out of anodized aluminum which is not magnetic. ACARI recognized this need and introduced the ACARI Steel, which gives you the option of utilizing magnetic roof top applications. 

However, the use of magnetic or vacuum/suction rooftop accessories mounted on the ACARI Steel mounting platform is at the sole discretion and risk of the user. ACARI makes no warranties or guarantees equipment used this way.

Can I use the ACARI mount as an electrical ground for my accessory?

No, the Acari Mount will not serve as an electrical ground. Although the platform is metal, it is mounted to the truck with rubber gaskets. Please follow the manufacturer’s installation instructions for proper grounding.
