The companies of Italy have designed and realized a roll formed profile of galvanized ultra high strength steel for the upper door beam.
The optimized form and a production technique that puts the properties of ultra high strength steel to optimum use have enabled the companies to develop a safety beam of low weight but with high energy absorption capacity. The design contributes to improved safety in cars in the place where the demand for passenger safety must be met within a very limited space available in today’s car doors.
