Inflatable Seatbelts

Special tubular webbing used in the shoulder portion of rear seatbelts hides an inflatable airbag that is triggered when front driver and passenger airbags are triggered, protecting second- and third-row occupants.  During inflation, the airbag breaks through the tubular webbing, expanding across the chest area, and a special coating helps the airbag stay inflated for 6 sec. to protect for multiple crash modes.  A new weaving technique was used to form the tubular webbing and a frangible edge that allows the belt to split and the airbag deploy.
