CRASHES 2013 Volvo FH
The driver of a new Volvo FH would emerge from an 80 km/h collision without
any serious injuries. And if the truck rolled over, there is an emergency
exit at hand. But not only the driver's safety has improved.
Thousands of simulated collision tests and about 100 real crash tests have
allowed Volvo Trucks' engineers to develop a safer truck cab. For instance,
high-strength materials such as dual-phase steel have been used in
collision-absorbing beams and in the doors. The cab too uses the strongest
steel available today for body panelling -- ultra-high-strength, thermoset,
press-moulded boron steel.
