Concept & Functionality
Named HALO™, the structure is a High Attenuation Load Offset device. When attached to a production vehicle roof along with internal reinforcements, HALO reduces the speed and amount of crush in the roof structure, when the vehicle experiences a rollover crash. HALO is equipped to prevent catastrophic and fatal injuries to the occupants that might occur without it.
The external roll hoop maintains the vehicle’s roll radius characteristic, allowing the vehicle body to roll more smoothly, minimizing forces on the occupants.
It also distributes the roof loads across the entire roof structure and underlying pillars to avoid a single point collapse.
The reinforcements minimize roof intrusion and speed at top of the structural pillars which keeps the roof up and away from the occupants.
These companies trust the lives of their workers with HALO
Safety Engineering International has been granted patents in several different countries for the HALO vehicle rollover protection roof geometry and structure.
