Inflatable Curtain (IC)
The inflatable curtain, DMIC (Door Mounted
Inflatable Curtain), is a supplement to the
SIPS system. It is fitted inside along the
driver’s and passenger side and protects
both front seat occupants. The inflatable cur-

sufficiently violent collision or if the car is at
risk of overturning. When deployed, the
inflatable curtain inflates. The inflatable cur-

Otherwise, the intended protection of the
inflatable curtain, which is concealed in the
headlining, may be compromised.
