Light and safe – How aluminium keeps you protected

Aluminium is the perfect solution for light and safe vehicles. At equal safety aluminium structural components can be made up to 40% lighter than steel. Light-weight aluminium also makes vehicles easier to handle and shortens braking distances, thereby helping to avoid accidents in the first place. And even if a crash happens, the lower weight of aluminium reduces the crash energy which must be absorbed during an accident. This minimises the overall impact and damage caused by a crash. Watch this video and find out why aluminium is the best choice for safe transport. If you want to learn more about vehicle safety follow @EU_aluminium
