TriflexAIR seat meets U.S. safety standards
The TriflexAIR seat, which already complies to the EU and UN regulations in safety belt anchorage (Regulation 14), now also meets the U.S. safety standards for motor vehicles (FMVSS).
In March, the safety belt anchorage of the TriflexAIR seat was subjected to a pull test in accordance with the standards of the FMVSS. Although FMVSS and the EU/UN safety standards are at the same level, the tests are somewhat different. The required test load applied to the safety belt is slightly higher in R 14 testing, but the FMSVV requires a longer test duration.
The TriflexAIR seat passed the test well beyond the minimum requirements. This means that it is now possible to use the seat in vehicles registered in the U.S. or in other countries which conform to the FMVSS, although bodybuilders should test the seats additionally to get their vehicles approved.
The lightweight construction and slim design has attracted much attention since the seat’s introduction a few years ago . “The international demand for the TriflexAIR seat has grown rapidly”, says Herman Rigterink. “The confirmation that our seats also meet the standards of the FMVSS means that we are able to fulfil that demand even better.”
