Dura of Germany has succeeded practically using the technique of combining core material with ultra high strength steel facing.
By using a roll formed closed profile provided with a suitable internal reinforcement, the load-carrying capacity of the individual beam is increased. This enables the opportunities offered by ultra high strength steel to be used to produce very light structures with high energy-absorbing capacity, combined with profitable and efficient production.
