Types of Seat Belts Offered through Seats R Us

Seats R Us offer two different types of seat belts: lap belts and three-point seat belts. Several variations are available depending on the seat colour, brand, and model. Did you know that seat belts aren't just compulsory for motor vehicles? According to Australian regulations, seat belts are required for forklifts, industrial vehicles, defense vehicles, and off road vehicles.

Lap Belts

A lap belt is a type of seat belt that goes over your waist. We offer automatic locking retractor (ALR) Forklift Seat Belts, which we recommend for the safe operation of tractors, bob cats, scrapers, and forklifts.

Why do Forklifts need seat belts?

Based on a study undertaken on forklift accidents, majority of accidents occurred to operators that weren't wearing a safety harness. One particular incident involved the death of an operator that took a sharp turn, overturned the forklift, fell out of his seat and was pinned underneath the forklift. Authorities disclosed this death would have been avoided if the operator had been wearing a safety harness. This very reason is why we sell ALR forklift seat belts, as this assures the safety of forklift operators.

Three Point Seat Belts

Three point seat belts have three points of attachments. They are a combination of the sash and lap seat belt, which is the usual type of safety belt fitted into cars. Three point seat belts were first introduced by Volvo in the 1980s and have been applied by all car manufactures since. Just like with any invention, upgrades and innovations have lead to safer devices, such as the Belt in Seat (BIS). The BIS is a type of seat belt that makes use of the three point system however is attached to the seat rather than the vehicle. This innovation has greatly improved passenger safety, especially during collisions when the seat dislodges or catapults.
