Normal car doors are hard to open in some collisions, this one would be impossible.
What happens in a serious road accident?
Our doors are stronger and more impact resistant that standard car doors for the following reasons.
Our door integration technology along with our modular cruciform door structure ensure that our door reunites structurally with the body when closed in a way which offers greater resistance to crash impact than a standard door as shown in crash tests performed for us by a major supplier to the automobile manufacturers.
How do Passengers escape after a bad crash?
Jatech has developed a Proprietary Access/Escape System which is built into every Retractable Door vehicle. An Impact Sensor releases all latches after a short built-in time lapse to allow for secondary impacts. The door can then be pushed outwards to the ground as there are no hinges to hold front end of the door in place.
Paramedics, Firemen and other accident responding personnel also found that access to passengers would be much improved in any severe accident situation.
What happens if the vehicle experiences power failure?
Our vehicles are equipped with a Manual Override which can be operated from inside or outside the vehicle.
