smartf rame rameTM: Protection for Belted and u nBelted elted

Here's how SmartFrame works: SafeGuard bus seats are made with two structures. The inner structure provides lap-shoulder belts and absorbs crash energy for the belted passenger. The outer seatback structure remains upright to cushion and then yield to absorb the energy of anyone in the seat behind who isn't wearing a seat belt.

SmartFrame yields forward in a collision.

Full compartmentalization helps contain passengers in frontal crashes.

Seating without SmartFrame leaves unbelted passengers vulnerable to forward momentum.
