SCHROTH Safety Products launches lap belt airbag system

SCHROTH Safety Products has introduced its new and advanced passenger lap belt airbag.

The ‘SCHROTH Lap Belt Airbag System’ is the company’s signature product for commercial aviation passenger restraint solutions, and builds on SCHROTH’s experience with inflatable passenger safety products in commercial and business aviation.

The system’s patent-pending design is suitable for passenger seating applications in all commercial passenger classes and as a safety solution for front row, exit row and business class seats, SCHROTH said. The design meets the latest FAA and EASA rules on head impact, neck injury, head rotation, rebound and chest acceleration, while it has been optimised for passenger comfort with a soft and comfortable packaging.

The product features an airbag shape which covers a wide spectrum of seating configurations, thus avoiding recurring design and test iterations, and substantially reducing engineering and certification costs, according to SCHROTH.

“Airbag solutions are crucial to guarantee passenger safety on certain seat positions but, traditionally, their qualification has caused substantial non-recurring cost,” said SCHROTH Safety Products’ CEO Martin Nadol. “Our innovative airbag design now allows seat manufacturers and operators to qualify their preferred LOPA with less effort and cost.”
