International Truck announced Wednesday it will offer IMMI’s RollTek seat as an option on its ProStar Class 8 on-highway trucks.
The RollTek safety system combines seat belt technology and side airbag protection in the event of a rollover. It has a sensor located behind the seat that monitors the angular position of the vehicle and activates when it detects an imminent rollover. When activated, RollTek deploys side-roll airbags, tightens the safety belt and lowers the seat to help reduce injury risk and maximize safety for operators.
“Today’s trucking companies are increasingly looking for smart technologies that can deliver an added margin of safety and productivity,” says Steve Gilligan, vice president, product marketing. “The RollTek safety system provides best-in-class protection that contributes to drivers’ safety and peace of mind.”
