FUPS & Cab Strength
UD was the first Japanese manufacturer in the Australian marketplace to offer Front Underrun Protection on its 16t GVM range of PK models.
Apart from the added safety credentials the major advantage for operators is the ability to increase the trucks GVM by an extra 500 kg when FUPS is fitted.
FUPS is designed to ensure the safety features fitted to passenger cars, such as air bags and crumple zones, are deployed during a front-on collison with a heavy vehicle.
UD is the first Japanese truck manufacturer to provide the highest level of cab strength, meeting the stringent ECE - R29 compliance in the PK range.
