YOU’RE ALWAYS IN GOOD HANDS
Active safety is all about making the driving of your truck as secure as possible, with the aim of minimising road risks, collisions and other incidents that could lead to injury. Passive safety focuses on design aspects that minimise the consequences resulting from a collision.
Scania brake pads consist of a unique friction material optimised for the patented alloy in the brake disc, which ensures maximum service life with consistent braking behaviour. New brake callipers, allied with improved brake actuation and the more advanced position of the front axle, greatly improve the braking distance of the new truck generation.
See it before it happens
A Scania cab offers unobstructed and panoramic views of the front and sides. Slimmer A-pillars, lower side windows and instrument panel, combined with adjustable driver position, contribute to enhanced visibility for the driver. Camera systems with full-frontal display monitors are available for an even wider and more centred field of vision. When driving at night, automatically levelling halogen headlights, position lights, direction and side indicators improve safety. High-mounted spot lamps are incorporated into the sun shield, while auxiliary lighting includes fog and spot lamps for adverse weather conditions.
High crash standards
Scania’s cab structure offers an outstanding crash performance and includes structural integrity, instrument positioning and dispersion of impact forces. But it also significantly reduces the risk of a car ending up under the vehicle in the event of a collision. Swedish crash test standards are among the most stringent in the world. Our new generation has surpassed them with ease and the new cab structure offer an outstanding crash performance.
Side curtain airbag
Scania’s roll-over airbag targets one of the most serious consequences of rollover accidents, where drivers or passengers are injured in a collision or fatally crushed by their own vehicle.
The information is provided for emergency services and contains information on Scania vehicle's design and systems. The aim is that the emergency services should be able to work safely and efficiently with a Scania vehicle that has been involved in an accident. The information is designed for use in preparatory training.
BRAKE WEAR INFORMATION
Over time, all brake linings will eventually wear out. The warnings integrated in Scania's electronic braking system enables worn pads to be identified well before they will cause a breakdown on the roadside. Thus you can plan to make the replacement in conjunction with the next scheduled inspection.
