1.9. Safety pillows


The car is equipped by double additional system of safety (Supplemental Restraint System – SRS), safety consisting of pillows for the driver and the forward passenger. In some countries Kia delivers cars only with one pillow of safety – for the driver.

The safety pillow is designed as additional protection FOR CORRECTLY FASTENED people in case of a strong head-on collision of the car. Safety pillows are not replacement of seat belts and do not provide protection of the bottom finitenesses.

There are many kinds of failures at which the pillow of safety does not work. Collisions concern them sideways and behind, переворачивание the car on a roof, the second or third blows at repeated collisions with an obstacle and collisions on small speed. Remember that safety pillows have been designed that they revealed only in cases when the person force of blow moves forward to a safety pillow, i.e. In cases of direct front blows or front blows with a small deviation from straightforwardness. In other words, if the car is damaged or completely broken, be not surprised that the safety pillow has not revealed. There are very important four arguments of application of seat belts even in cases when the car is equipped by safety pillows:

      – Belts keep in correct position (far enough from a revealing pillow of safety);
      – Belts reduce risk of wound at collisions sideways and behind, at переворачивании the car because the safety pillow is not created for such situations;
      – Belts reduce risk of wound at the weak head-on collisions which are not strong enough for activation of a pillow.

Pillows of safety and seat belts

Even in the car equipped with pillows of safety, the driver and passengers should be fastened by seat belts for danger reduction травмирования. At collision or переворачивании the car belts reduce probability of loss of the person from the car.

Be always fastened by a seat belt. The belt will help to be kept on sufficient distance from a safety pillow at sharp braking directly ahead of collision.

Safety pillows are designed so that they have revealed in cases of sharp front blows. They do not reveal at collisions sideways and behind, переворачивании the car or at head-on collisions on small speed. Also do not reveal from secondary repeating blows during repeated collisions.

If the car has been flooded or has been somehow damaged at flooding, do not try to start up the engine or to insert a key into the ignition lock, and disconnect the storage battery. The pillow of safety otherwise can reveal and cause a serious trauma. Tow off the car to authorised dealer Kia for carrying out of survey and necessary repair.
