Cellbond has been at the forefront of energy absorption and the supply of barriers for passive vehicle safety testing since 1988. Through its continued commitment to research and technical expertise the company has become an internationally recognised expert in many areas of impact absorption.
The aluminium honeycomb used in Cellbond barriers crushes under load and cushions impact in a reliable and uniform way.
Cellbond introduced the concept of aluminium honeycomb calibration for use in deformable crash barriers. This concept was adapted by NHTSA into the build requirements of FMVSS 214 and by EEVC Working Group 11 for the European frontal offset barrier. Today it is a standard method for certification of all aluminium honeycomb barriers.
