Inflatable Curtain (IC)

Inflatable Curtain (IC)  - Safety - Volvo XC60 Owners Manual - Volvo XC60General information

This system consists of inflatable curtains

This system consists of inflatable curtains located along the sides of the roof liners, stretching from the center of both front side windows to the rear edge of the rear side door windows. It is designed to help protect the heads of the occupants of the front seats and the occupant of the outboard rear seating positions in certain side impact collisions.

In certain side impacts, both the Inflatable Curtain (IC) and the Side Impact Airbag System (SIPS airbag) will deploy. The IC and the SIPS airbag deploy simultaneously.

NOTE
If the inflatable curtain deploys, it remains inflated for approximately 3 seconds.

WARNING
Х The IC system is a supplement to the Side Impact Protection System. It is not designed to deploy during collisions from the rear of the vehicle.
Х Never try to open or repair any components of the IC system. This should be done only by a trained and qualified Volvo service technician.
Х Never hang heavy items from the ceiling handles. This could impede deployment of the Inflatable Curtain.
Х The cargo area and rear seat should not be loaded to a level higher than 2 in.
(5 cm) below the upper edge of the rear side windows. Objects placed higher than this level could impede the function of the Inflatable Curtain.

WARNING
In order for the IC to provide its best protection, both front seat occupants and both outboard rear seat occupants should sit in an upright position with the seat belt properly fastened; adults using the seat belt and children using the proper child restraint system.
Only adults should sit in the front seats.
Children must never be allowed in the front passenger seat, see page 38 for guidelines.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in injury to the vehicle occupants in an accident.
