Based on Aluminum Honeycomb technology, the NHTSA FMVSS-214 impact barrier (crash test barrier) is used by car manufacturers and test laboratories worldwide for the assessment of motor vehicle passenger protection in side and rear impact collisions according to the American NCAP protocol. The side-impact test consists in a 1,368 kg trolley impact on the driver’s side of the test vehicle. The trolley is equipped with NHTSA FMVSS-214 deformable barrier, which simulates the front of the impacting vehicle.
The NHTSA FMVSS-214 barrier is certified for USA-NCAP tests and is manufactured in accordance with the NHTSA Lab Test Procedure for Dynamic Side Impact Protection: TP214D Appendix C.
The total quantity of kinetic energy to be absorbed by the NHTSA FMVSS-214 barrier is between 124 and 139 kJ. The barrier dimensions are:
Bumper Facing Sheet
The AXAC NHTSA FMVSS-214 side impact deformable barrier are
manufactured according to NHTSA-TP214-D & NHTSA 49CFR571.214
A complete testing procedure for certification of aluminum honeycomb is performed in-house according to the NHTSA Lab Test Procedure for Dynamic Side Impact Protection: TP214D Appendix C. The side impact barrier materials having crush strength of 45 PSI +/- 2.5 PSI for the main block and 245 PSI +/- 15 PSI for the bumper block.
AXAC has an approved IS09001 Quality Management System, which demonstrates commitment to supplying customers with the highest quality products and services.
