Driver Airbags: The driver airbag module is incorporated into the steering wheel of a vehicle. ZF's compact driver airbag module offers the next step forward for styling flexibility and lower mass, due to its small size. This module can incorporate all the features of a fully functional airbag system such as ZF's snap-in guidance attachment system, active tether venting, single- or dual-stage inflators, inflator mass damper and horn function.
Passenger Airbags: The passenger airbag is incorporated into the instrument panel or roof rail of a vehicle. ZF’s DI-10 passenger airbag module combines effective tailorable restraint performance with reduced package size and weight. This design is a cost effective solution with four major components including the airbag assembly, plastic housing, bag retainer and inflator. Another option is the ZF’s bag in roof technology that is installed and deploys from the roof of a vehicle and allows greater design flexibility for the instrument panel.
Knee Airbags: The knee airbag module is incorporated into the lower part of a vehicle’s instrument panel. ZF’s compact knee airbag module helps to provide harmonized occupant kinematics and positioning while reducing and / or balancing chest and lower limb loads.
Side Airbags: The side airbag module is located in the seat and attached to seat frame. It is designed to help protect the complete torso area, including the thorax, abdomen and pelvis of the occupant. ZF has developed a wide range of side impact airbag configurations to help improve occupant protection in side impact events. Further innovations include Far Side Impact Protection side airbags that deploy between the driver and passenger seat, as well as external side airbags that are mounted on the outside frame of the vehicle and inflate between the oncoming obstacle and the vehicle exterior to help reduce severity of impact .
Side Curtain and Rollover Airbags: ZF has developed a wide range of side impact and rollover curtain airbag configurations to help improve occupant protection including ejection mitigation for rollover crash events.
