LISLE, Ill. – International Truck announced today it is offering IMMI’s RollTek seat as an option on its ProStar models.
The RollTek system combines advanced seat belt technology and side airbag protection to reduce the risk for death or serious injury in a rollover. It has a sensor located behind the seat that constantly monitors the angular position of the vehicle and activates when it detects an imminent rollover. When activated, the system deploys side-roll airbags, tightens the safety belt and lowers the seat to help reduce injury risk and maximize safety for operators.
“Our commitment to incorporating the most advanced collision mitigation technology systems have demonstrated the potential to make a real difference in improving driver safety,” said Bill Kozek, president, Truck and Parts. “Incorporating the advanced RollTek protection system into our heavy truck portfolio is a reflection of our listening to our customers and providing them with an option when a collision is unavoidable.”
