The 2015 Ford Transit will feature the industry's first five-row side curtain airbag which represents an industry-first. This airbag will be 15 feet long and 3 feet tall. It has a volume of 120 liters and in case of a collision the stored gas inflates the airbag in a fraction of a second thanks to the biggest inflators in the industry.
The airbag is manufactured from a coated, polyester-based fabric holding the gas so that the bag will remain inflated for several seconds after the impact. The inflators will fill the bag in a pattern developed to manage the direction of the bag deployment as well as control cushion thickness through the entire length of the bag.
