High pressure gas vessels remained safe and did not leak during crash thanks to FIBA's specialist designWe recently saw how FIBA’s patented modular trailer design prevented a serious leak during a rear end collision involving a truck carrying high pressure gas vessels.  News has now arrived of a similar crash involving a FIBA-designed hybrid trailer.  Again, no there were no leaks thanks to the robust construction.

FIBA has always been at the forefront of crash testing, having pioneered rail crash tests, and even bonfire testing in the Mojave Desert.

The security of high pressure gas on FIBA trailers begins at the design stage and is proven through the critical testing processes.  For the modular trailer design and the hybrid trailer, the design team has focussed on protecting the tubes from being impacted or dislodging.
