SafeGuard BTI Now Available

March 8, 2018 (Westfield, IN) – IMMI’s SafeGuard, the most trusted supplier of lap-shoulder belts for school buses, announced their SafeGuard BTI seat is now available. School districts’ transportation needs change, but with BTI seating, so can their buses.

The SafeGuard BTI is the safest seat on the market, crash tested more than any other seat, and the only seat with SmartFrame Plus ™ technology to better protect belted and un-belted students in a crash.

Another BTI exclusive is the TattleTale Indicator™ which indicates whether or not a seat should be replaced after a crash. With the SafeGuard BTI lighter than ever before, districts not only have the safest seat, they also save on fuel costs.

Districts who take advantage of the SafeGuard BTI will find upgradability fast and easy. Whether they’re updating to 3-point lap-shoulder belts, or they need Integrated Child Seats for smaller children, the SafeGuard BTI allows them to upgrade by simply swapping seat backs. Ease of maintenance has also been improved to save districts even more time and money.

“At SafeGuard, we’re always pushing to innovate the next big thing in school bus seat safety and the SafeGuard BTI doesn’t disappoint,” said Larry Gray, IMMI CEO. “We wanted a seat that was easier than ever to upgrade but also the safest seat on the market. The SafeGuard BTI delivers.”

The SafeGuard BTI is available to order beginning in March for IC Buses.
