Safety Innovations

Spartan Advanced Protection System

Protects like no other with the industry’s #1 rated safety system.

Outboard Sensors

Detects multi-angle impacts allowing faster deployment of airbags with sensors mounted on the outer perimeter of the cab.

Side impact protection

Protects all occupants from side impact collisions, rollovers and occupant ejection. The only company in the industry whose airbags protect cab occupants from side impacts.

Driver knee airbags

Protects against injuries resulting from hitting the instrument panel or other interior points of contact. Locks the lower body in place so the upper body can be slowed and protected by the steering wheel airbag.

Full side curtain airbags

Protects from a side impact or a rollover with airbags up to three times larger than other manufacturers. Each rear side airbag is custom-sized for the crew area of every cab built, with the largest rear side airbag covering seven times the area of any other manufacturer.

Advanced Seatbelts

Pulls the occupant into the seat in the event of an impact, or rollover using pyrotechnic pretensioners that provide more force during the initial lock. After the occupant is pulled into the seat, load limiters release some of the webbing to control the occupant’s deceleration into the airbag system, helping to mitigate the strain on each occupant, further reducing seatbelt-related injuries.

Galvanized Frame Rails

Provides decades of corrosion protection through hot-dip galvanizing, one of the most maintenance-free and economical corrosion-protection systems available. Particularly beneficial for trucks in Northern climates that are regularly exposed to snow/ice melt chemicals.

Full Side Curtain Airbags

Protects from a side impact or a rollover with airbags up to three times larger than other manufacturers. Each rear side airbag is custom-sized from the crew area of every cab built, with the largest rear side airbag covering seven times the area of any other manufacturer.

Advanced Climate Control

With a reputation for spacious, secure, and well-designed cabs, Spartan now adds the industry’s best HVAC system to its cab offerings — creating a safer and more comfortable environment for Fire Fighters working in any kind of climate.

  • Aggressively cools and heats cab interior
  • Distributes air volume evenly to all occupants
  • Defrosts/Defogs quickly and effectively clears Flash Fogging
  • Quickly and effectively evacuates condensate
  • Designed for easy service and maintenance

360 Camera

At Spartan, we face reality head on with cabs that feature the most advanced safety provisions available in the market today. Designed and purpose-built for firefighters, the 360 camera is a forward-thinking safety apparatus , developed around the needs of the first responder.

Driver Knee Airbags

Protects against injuries resulting from hitting the instrument panel or other interior points of contact. Locks the lower body in place so the upper body can be slowed and protected by the steering wheel airbag.

Cab Construction

Spartan offers flat, 5″, 10″, 20″, and 24″ raised roof options that are reinforced with C-channel supports. As well as multiple seating configurations to provide your crew with extended legroom, improved visibility, additional storage and provides extra safety from triple-reinforced box front bulkhead, engine compartment, front and rear step assemblies.

Advanced Seatbelts

Pulls the occupant into the seat in the event of an impact, or rollover using pyrotechnic pretensioners that provide more force during the initial lock. After the occupant is pulled into the seat, load limiters release some of the webbing to control the occupant’s deceleration into the airbag system, helping to mitigate the strain on each occupant, further reducing seatbelt-related injuries.

Industry-First Outboard Sensors

State-of-the-art outboard sensors protect occupants from multi-angle impacts in the cab. These sensors are mounted at the outer perimeter of the cab providing a “zone of safety” inside the cab. Each sensor communicates back to the restraint control module that monitors which airbag should deploy and under what conditions.

Side Impact Protection

Protects all occupants from side impact collisions, rollovers and occupant ejection. The only company in the industry whose airbags protect cab occupants from side impacts.
