Title (DE) KNIEGASSACKMODUL
(EN) KNEE AIR BAG MODULE
(FR) MODULE DE COUSSIN GONFLABLE POUR GENOUX
Abstract:
(DE) Ein Kniegassackmodul eines Fahrzeuginsassen-Rückhaltesystems umfasst ein Außengehäuse (12), das eine Vorderseite (14) mit einer Entfaltungsöffnung (18) sowie eine entgegengesetzte Rückseite (16) hat, einen Gassack (20) und einen Gasgenerator (32), der Füllgas zur Entfaltung des Gassacks (20) bereitstellt. Der Gassack (20) ist gefaltet und von einer flexiblen Gassackumhüllung (34) im gefalteten Zustand unter Bildung eines Gassackpakets (24) gehalten, wobei das Gassackpaket (24) eine vormontierte Einheit bildet und die flexible Gassackumhüllung (34) zumindest abschnittsweise das Kniegassackmodul (10) nach außen abschließt. Es ist ein starres Außengehäuseteil (42) vorgesehen, das einen im Bereich des Gassackpakets (24) positionierten ersten Abstützbereich (54) aufweist, an der sich der Gassack (20) während der Entfaltung abstützt.
(EN) The invention relates to a knee air bag module of a vehicle passenger restraint system comprising an outer housing (12), which has a front side (14) having an unfolding opening (18) and an opposite rear side (16), an air bag (20), and an inflator (32) that provides filling gas for unfolding the air bag (20). The air bag (20) is folded and held in the folded state by a flexible air bag encasement (34), forming an air bag package (24), wherein the air bag package (24) forms a pre-mounted unit and the flexible air bag enclosure (34) terminates the knee air bag module (10) to the outside, at least in sections. According to the invention, there is a rigid outer housing part (42), which has a first support region (54) positioned in the region of the air bag package (24), on which the air bag (20) is supported while unfolding.
(FR) Module de coussin gonflable pour genoux faisant partie d’un système de retenue pour occupants de véhicule, comprenant un boîtier extérieur (12) présentant une face avant (14) pourvue d’une ouverture de déploiement (18) ainsi qu’une face arrière (16) opposée, un coussin gonflable (20) et un générateur de gaz (32) qui fournit le gaz de remplissage pour le déploiement du coussin gonflable (20). Le coussin gonflable (20) est plié et maintenu à l’état plié par une enveloppe de coussin gonflable (34) souple, de manière à former un ensemble coussin gonflable (24), ce dernier (24) formant une unité prémontée et l’enveloppe de coussin gonflable (34) fermant le module de coussin gonflable pour genoux (10) vers l'extérieur, au moins dans certaines zones. Une partie de boîtier extérieur (42) présente une première zone d’appui (54) qui est positionnée dans la zone de l'ensemble coussin gonflable (24) et sur laquelle le coussin gonflable (20) prend appui lors de son déploiement.
