American Seating

SmartFrame™ Technology

The new PREMIER, with lap-shoulder belts and exclusive SafeGuard SmartFrame technology, offers the highest level of safety. PREMIER is the only motorcoach seat combining lap-shoulder belts with full compartmentalization. With SmartFrame, unbelted passengers have protection in frontal crashes.

The seat has 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 anyone in the seat behind who isn’t wearing a seat belt.
With SmartFrame Without SmartFrame
Seating with SmartFrame technology offers full compartmentalization, which helps contain passengers in frontal crashes. Seating without SmartFrame is not designed to provide compartmentalization, leaving unbelted passengers vulnerable to forward momentum.
