The monocoque and Passive Safety
The Fibreglass Monocoque and Passive Safety
Active safety means all the equipment and structural elements of a vehicle designed to help prevent an accident.
Many safety systems are designed to prevent collisions with other vehicles or obstacles, and mainly have a preventative function. Active safety functions help the driver control the vehicle as easily and safely as possible in critical situations and conditions.
Passive safety comes into play when all the safety devices are not enough to prevent potentially dangerous situations or even a collision. At this stage, the passive control equipment and systems are triggered.
Passive safety relates to any system that can protect passengers in a vehicle when it hits another vehicle or obstacle (such as the vehicle’s safety cell/ reinforcements/safety belts).This equipment is designed to reduce the negative consequences of the accident after it occurs.
The safety cell is one of the most important passive safety elements in a vehicle. It is designed to keep the survival space of the passengers intact as much as possible and ensure it does not buckle. It is also designed to prevent, thanks to its rigidity, any unwanted material from getting into the vehicle and coming in contact with the passengers.
WINGAMM’S CELL IS A FIBREGLASS MONOCOQUE MADE FROM A SINGLE BLOCK, WITH NO JOINTS.
The glassfibre fabrics are resin-coated and layered by hand. The resin-coated glassfibres form an extremely solid seamless grid and create a very sstrong cell. This helps to reduce the effects of the impact on the passengers and on the driver.
