Safety first: Baysafe® absorbs energy in solar car crashbox
To compete in the World Solar Challenge, each team must submit a safety concept that demonstrates how the solar car’s driver will be protected during an accident. Team Sonnenwagen Aachen e. V. turned to Baysafe® polyurethane foam to design a crashbox that withstands any force from a collision.
We chose Baysafe® because it is the lightest option with the highest energy absorption and best safety properties.
The crash box made with Baysafe®contributes to the safety of the solar car and is very light at the same time.
Why Baysafe® is the right solution for the Sonnenwagen crashbox
- High energy-absorbency Protects vehicle, passengers and pedestrians regardless of impact direction.
- Dimensional stability Prevents squeaking and rattling of components over a long period of time.
- Economical production Save costs by insert molding anchoring elements and bonding supports.
