Allegiant Air Selects AmSafe's Passenger Seatbelt
This streamlined version of AmSafe's traditional design is nearly 25 percent lighter than the restraint installed on the majority of the world's commercial fleet.
The lightweight seatbelt has the same patented performance qualities that AmSafe's products have become known for. It has the same attach points as the conventional AmSafe seatbelt and can be easily retrofitted on both premium and economy seats.
AmSafe passenger restraints incorporate the most advanced technology available. AmSafe uses advanced materials, manufacturing techniques and in-house dynamic testing, along with continual research and development, to ensure that all seat occupants are safe and secure.
In addition, AmSafe Industries has unveiled its next-generation seatbelt airbag for commercial aviation. The next-generation AmSafe Seatbelt Airbag will be available for delivery in the third quarter of 2011.
AmSafe introduced the aviation seatbelt airbag in 2001 to provide the commercial aviation industry with an option for compliance with the FAA's 16G safety regulation while protecting airline LOPAs and their associated revenue.
The seatbelt airbag is a self-contained, modular restraint designed to protect occupants from serious head-impact injury and to enhance one's ability to exit an aircraft following a survivable accident.
Herb Mardany, senior vice president of AmSafe Industries, said: â€œAs carriers once again face the challenge of extremely high fuel costs, they continue to look for innovative ways to reduce cabin weight. Our lightweight seatbelt, which retains the iconic teardrop buckle design familiar to passengers around the world, is an important component of any weight-reduction plan geared toward improved fuel efficiency.â€
