Based on aluminum honeycomb technology, the AXAC frontal offset barrier (developed under EEVC-WG11) is used by car manufacturers and test laboratories worldwide for the assessment of motor vehicle passenger protection in frontal offset collisions.
The frontal offset impact replicates a collision with another vehicle. In this test, 40% of the test vehicle, on the driver’s side, initially makes contact with a crushable aluminum honeycomb barrier at the impact speed defined by the standards requirements.
The AXAC Offset Deformable Barrier is certified for frontal occupant protection such as:
The AXAC Offset Deformable Barrier is certified for frontal NCAP tests such as:
The AXAC Offset Deformable Barrier is approved by IIHS. IIHS will accept verification tests from car makers using ARGOSY Offset Deformable Barriers.
