Airbag systems in vehicles

Airbag systems in vehicles today take passenger safety to a new level of effectiveness.

For the number one safety restraint company in the world, a cutting-edge installation system ensures that airbags deploy and protect as designed, and faster and easier installation creates a competitive differentiator.


icon necessity can be the mother of development

In addition to the simple fact that people prefer to buy safer vehicles, industry regulations put pressure on auto manufacturers to develop safety solutions that reduce traffic deaths and injuries. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration stipulates that side airbags need to deploy in less than 1/20th of a second. Current airbag deployment designs can meet that requirement. Unfortunately, those designs exceed the capabilities of the industry standard airbag clamping system. That problem sent Band-IT to the drawing board.

“Airbags in automobiles were introduced in the late 1960s. In 1995, Volvo began offering side airbags and torso side protection airbags as an option on its 850 models.”
