1.1.39.2. Lateral safety cushions

GENERAL INFORMATION

Arrangement of lateral safety cushions

Lateral safety cushions are placed in pillows of a back of forward seats and you can identify them on "AIRBAG" inscription in the top part of the back party of backs of seats.

The system of lateral inflatable pillows together with three-dot seat belts provides additional protection of the top part of a body of the driver and the forward passenger in case of serious lateral collisions.

At lateral blows operation of lateral safety cushions reduces probability of drawing of serious injuries to the driver or the forward passenger being in a zone of lateral blow.

Except performance of the main protective function, seat belts also provide such position of bodies of the driver and the forward passenger at which lateral inflatable pillows can provide the greatest protection at side-winders.

The system of lateral inflatable safety cushions does not work at face-to-face blows, light lateral blows, blows in a back part of the car, capsizing.

The system of lateral inflatable pillows without danger at all is not replacement to seat belts, and represents an essential component of the general concept of passive safety of the car. Please, remember that the greatest efficiency of action of inflatable safety cushions is reached only at joint action with the put-on seat belts.

Therefore it is necessary to use always seat belts not only because of need to observe legislative instructions, but also for reasons of ensuring own safety!

The system of lateral inflatable safety cushions consists of the following main knots and details:

 – electronic control unit system and control of functional readiness of system (control unit);
 – inflatable safety cushions on each side back party of backs of forward seats;
 – a control lamp on the dashboard.
