December 3, 2015, Westfield, Indiana – IMMI’s RollTek®, the only side roll airbag protection system of its kind for the commercial truck market, is now available on the National Seating platform. Fleets have asked for RollTek on the National seat, and IMMI has delivered, combining some of the most desired seat features for drivers with the enhanced protection of RollTek to keep them safer.
RollTek combines advanced seat belt technology and airbag protection to better protect truck drivers in one of the worst kinds of accidents they can face – a rollover. More than 50% of all truck driver fatalities happen in this kind of crash. With RollTek, drivers have a better chance of not only surviving, but walking away. Some fleets, such as Gemini Motor Transport, believe in RollTek so much, they won’t buy a truck without it.
Proven in the heavy truck marketplace since 2007, RollTek works in the blink of an eye to protect the driver and/or passenger in a rollover. When the RollTek sensor detects an imminent rollover, the seat belt pretensioner tightens, holding the driver in his seat. The seat is then pulled down to it’s lowest level to increase survivable space in the cab. Lastly, an airbag deploys to cushion the head and neck.
