Peterbilt offers rollover protection as 579, 567 option

petetekPeterbilt’s flagship on-highway Model 579 and vocational Model 567 now offers RollTek’s safety protection system integrated with the company’s Atlas II driver seats.

A sensor located under the seat is engineered for continuous monitoring of the vehicle’s angular position and activates when it detects an imminent rollover, deploying side-roll airbags, tightening the safety belt and lowering the seat.

The Atlas II seat with the RollTek system is a factory-installed option fully integrated with the truck’s electrical and air systems.
