Deploy Safe seat covers are constructed using a computerised controlled stitching process and a specialised thread that allows the side seams to split open upon deployment of an airbag.


For more information please refer to our Deploy Safe section on this website.

Yes, Deploy Safe has been tested by a world wide recognised automobile testing laboratory that is headquartered in Australia and Europe. Deploy Safe products have passed all their tests.

After extensively testing this new technology, Ilana is fully confident in its operation according to world standards. Quality and safety issues are very important to Ilana.

The testing was done on a "test group" that took into account different seat sizes, different mechanisms of integarted side airbags and different external factors such as weather, temperature etc. Deploy Safe was tested on an integrated side airbag mechanism very similar to the one in your car seat.

Ilana Accessories has tested these seat covers under special laboratory conditions and have been tested to conform within vehicle manufacturers standards for integrated side airbag deployment.

Deploy Safe seat covers provide no interference with the time required for deployment of side airbags according to vehicle manufacturers requirements. Deploy Safe seat covers are safe to use with integrated side airbags as long as they are fitted correctly.

Ilana gives the same time of guarantee of the operation for its Deploy Safe seat covers as on its normal range of seat covers being from 1 to 5 years depending on the seat cover product. Please check your packaging for guarantee details.

Yes, if the side seam splits for any reason it CANNOT be repaired. Any attempt to re-sew the seam may interfere with the integrated side airbag deployment. Discard the seat cover after any side airbag activation. Incorrect fitting can prevent the seat airbag from inflating correctly in the event of a collision.

Customers are asked to fill in a purchase registration form with details of their purchase and send it back to Ilana. The purchase registration form is included in every pack of Deploy Safe seat covers or the form can be filled in online on our website here.

The purchase registration records your integrated side airbag compatible seat covers. Your registration will be saved together with the production information of your individual seat covers. This data will be treated with the strictest confidence and we will keep them on file for up to 5 years.

No, the purchase registration form is not mandatory nor will it void any warranties. You do not have to fill it out and send it back to Ilana Accessories.
