Seat belts


Correctly put on seat belts hold the driver and passengers in a sitting position. Belts substantially reduce energy of the movement which is extinguished at collision.

Thereby prevent uncontrollable ejection of the driver and passengers from their places as a result of which drawing severe injuries is possible.

Energy of the movement of the driver and passengers with correctly put on seat belts considerably is transmitted through seat belts on a car body. And total energy of the movement is extinguished at frontal blow by a car framework thanks to the special power absorbing structure of a forward part of the car and other constructive measures of passive safety, for example, to inflatable safety cushions. Thereby forces which can throw out the driver and passengers from their seats significantly decrease thanks to what the risk of receiving severe injuries decreases.
By means of regulation of provision of points of fastening of belts of front seats on height it is possible to provide the best placement of a humeral branch of a belt.

For implementation of such regulation it is necessary to squeeze keys and to so shift a belt bracket up or down that the humeral branch passed through the middle of a shoulder, and not through a throat at all.

After regulation pull for a belt to make sure that the bracket of a belt is reliable it is recorded.

For the best provision of a belt it is possible to carry out on front seats also corresponding readjusting of provision of a seat on height.

Natyazhiteli of seat belts

In addition to inflatable pillows degree of safety of the driver and forward passenger, fastened by belts, can be raised thanks to installation of natyazhitel in automatic devices of taking-up of forward three-point belts.

Also degree of safety of the passengers fastened by belts on side places of a back seat thanks to installation of natyazhitel in automatic devices of taking-up of three-point belts raises.

The seat belt should not pass through the cast-away seatback as in this case back natyazhitel in case of collision will work.

This system is put in action in case of strong frontal blows by means of special sensors. At each put-on seat belt in the taking-up automatic machine the pyro is set fire. At the same time seat belts stretch.

At easy frontal collisions, side blows and blows in a back part of the car, when capsizing, and also at other types of accidents when there are no how many or considerable, directed in the direction of travel forces, natyazhitel are not put in action.

At operation of natyazhitel smoke is emitted. It does not demonstrate emergence of the seat of fire on the car at all.
