Studies have shown that roll overs account for up to 34% of all fatalities involving four wheel drive vehicles in Australia. Comprehensive studies have confirmed that there is a direct correlation between roof crush and occupant injury. The forces experienced by the body during a roll over are generally not violent and in most cases are easily survivable – the cause of serious injury and death are generally the intrusion of the roof on the occupants survival space. Studies show that the A pillars combined with the bonded windscreen in most vehicles account for approximately 30% of the vehicles roof strength and rarely survives the first contact with the ground.
