IIHS Side-Impact Barrier V2.0 Now Confirmed

By Argosy International / October 7, 2020

Argosy has worked in collaboration with the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) to redevelop the Side Impact Barrier in order to better replicate characteristics of higher severity vehicle-to-vehicle crash tests. The IIHS Side Impact barrier’s redefined shape is based on the current SUV and Pickups, which will be reflected in the IIHS side impact test protocol by 2023.

The IIHS Side Impact barrier updates include:

  • Lower overall height of the deformable element
  • Lower mounting of barrier (decrease ground clearance)
  • Larger barrier thickness to reduce bottoming of the deformable element
  • Wider flat front face to match vehicle structures
  • Reduced height of bumper beam element to match current vehicles
  • Changes to honeycomb stiffness to reflect vehicle characteristics

Argosy’s IIHS side Impact Barrier V2.0 is now available to OEM’s and Labs.
