Title (EN) REINFORCED TRIM COVER FOR A VEHICLE SEAT ASSEMBLY WITH A TEAR LINE FOR AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT
(FR) GARNITURE INTERIEURE RENFORCEE, DESTINEE A UN SIEGE DE VEHICULE ET PRESENTANT UNE LIGNE DE DECHIREMENT SERVANT AU DEPLOIEMENT D'UN COUSSIN GONFLABLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A vehicle seat (10) having an inflatable airbag module (58) with the trim cover (24) overlying the airbag being reinforced in the region adjacent to the airbag (70) and having a weakened zone formed by cutting the reinforcement (52) to create a tear line (32) for deployment of the airbag (70) through the trim cover (80). The reinforcement reduces stretching of the trim cover piece (30) during deployment of the airbag (70) at locations surrounding the tear line (32) such that the trim cover (30) ruptures along the tear line (32) to produce a predictable airbag deployment.
(FR)Ce siège (10) de véhicule comprend un coussin gonflable (70) recouvert d'une garniture (30) renforcée dans la région adjacente au coussin gonflable (70), ainsi qu'une zone de faiblesse (59) formée par une découpe du renfort (52), afin de créer une ligne de déchirement (32) servant au déploiement du coussin gonflable (70), à travers la garniture (80). Ce renfort réduit l'étirement de la garniture (30) lors du déploiement du coussin (70), au niveau des endroits entourant la ligne de déchirement (32), de façon que la garniture (30) s'ouvre le long de cette ligne de déchirement (32) pour permettre le déploiement prévisible du coussin gonflable (70).
