Safety Airbags Information

Show all Safety Airbags Manufacturers

Airbags are safety restraint devices, they utilize an accelerometer or impact sensors on a vehicle to deploy during an impact situation.   Upon inflation, they restrain the vehicle occupant and reduce movement and injury during an accident.  Airbags are made of a fabric bag designed to rapidly inflate  typically with a pyrotechnic device during a collision.  Some airbags may instead utilize a cylinder of compressed air instead of a pyrotechnic.  Vehicles may have multiple airbags both in front of the occupants as well as on the sides of them to reduce injury for a side collision.   Airbags are not intended to be a primary restraint like seat-belts but instead are a secondary restraint or supplemental restraint device.
