ZF produces a variety of seat belt safety technologies that help improve occupant protection.
ZF’s advanced belt systems help manage occupant energy during a vehicle crash. As an integral part of the vehicle’s occupant safety system, ZF seat belt technologies use sensing information to help tailor occupant protection and can work in concert with airbags to adapt to crash variables. ZF offers both front- and rear-seat applications.
Active Seat Belt Systems: ZF’s Active Control Retractor and the Active Buckle Lifter are advanced seat belt designs that work in combination with the vehicle’s active safety systems. These seat belt technologies can help vehicle occupants locate and fasten the buckle; helps reduce some seat belt slack in dynamic driving situations; and helps decrease the possibility of occupants being out-of-position.
Seat Belt Systems: ZF continues to develop standard seat belt system for both front and rear seat applications. Seat belt technologies include a variety of seat belt retractor pretensioners, anchor and buckle pretensioners as well as height adjusters and buckles.
