2016: World’s first rollover side curtain airbag for trucks

Unique rollover side curtain airbags are introduced. The airbags are designed to deploy and protect those travelling in the cab if the truck rolls over. Scania’s solution 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. Scania’s new truck generation can be equipped with rollover side curtain airbags integrated into the headliner moulding above the doors – this is a unique solution which has never previously been offered in trucks. Scania’s rollover side curtain airbags provide significantly-enhanced protection for those travelling in the vehicle in the event of a rollover, one of the most serious types of truck accidents.
