REV Group, Inc. (NYSE: REVG), which includes companies that manufacture Horton®, AEV®, Road Rescue®, Wheeled Coach® and Leader® brand ambulances, announces the RollTek airbag system, that combines side airbag protection for rollovers with the latest advances in seat belt technology, is now available on all REV ambulance brands.
The RollTek system, developed by global safety leader, IMMI®, has sensors that detect an unrecoverable rollover of a vehicle and deploys airbags in a quarter of a second to significantly reduce the potential for serious injury or death. Extensively tested by the Center for Advanced Product Evaluation (CAPE), RollTek meets or exceeds all safety-standards for ambulances, fire apparatus and commercial truck use.*
“In 2019, we introduced IMMI’s Per4Max® seat belts as an exclusive safety feature in all our ambulance brands,” said Anoop Prakash, President, REV Ambulance Group. “We are now adding the RollTek Airbag system as an option on our AEV, Leader, Road Rescue and Wheeled Coach Type 1, Type 3 and medium-duty ambulances1 to broaden availability of another important safety feature.”
RollTek airbags were first introduced to the ambulance industry in 2008 as part of Horton Emergency Vehicle’s signature Horton Occupant Protection System® (HOPS®), combining patient compartment airbags, IMMI seat belts and Horton’s progressive foam at head strike points. In 2019, Per4Max seat belts were introduced as standard across all REV Ambulance Group brands. Per4Max is a multi-point restraint system with controlled deceleration that lessens crash force while allowing EMS practitioners more freedom to reach critical supplies and provide patient care, while safely buckled in.
“We’ve worked closely with REV Group on extensive testing to ensure optimal performance of RollTek in each of their unique ambulance brands,” said Larry Gray, Chief Executive Officer at IMMI. “This work is part of our longstanding partnership with REV Group and our shared commitment to increasing safety for first responders.”
