Impact Airbag System
Delivering EMS Safety With IMPACT
Braun Ambulances is proud to build on their legacy of safety by introducing the new IMPACT Airbag System with RollTek™ technology. Short for Interior Module Protection and Collision Technology, the IMPACT Airbag System is an EMS safety option focused on enhancing occupant protection in every seating position in the module. Currently available as an option on select Braun models, the first phase of the innovation contains three critical components:
- Strategically placed airbags using IMMI’s RollTek™ technology.
- Advanced seating restraints at CPR, head, fore, and aft bench seat.
- Progressive resistance padding (foam) at head strike points
While airbags and padding add significant protection to the module in the event of a side impact induced rollover, a big part of staying safe inside an ambulance is using a seat belt. Just like riding in a car, the importance of staying belted cannot be stressed enough. The IMPACT Airbag System is only effective when occupants are safely belted into their seats.
Existing seating restraint systems in Braun ambulances already meet industry requirements for frontal, side, and rear impacts. 4-point seat belts with one-click, single buckles are available on attendant seats. Advanced restraints are also available for CPR, head, fore, and aft bench seats. In addition, Braun seat backs are composed of a multiple density foam, which also helps to absorb energy on impact. Customers are encouraged to work with your Siddons-Martin EMS Sales Representative to identify the best seating options for your needs.
