2020 Mercedes Actros Semi Truck Sideguard and Safety Features

2020 Mercedes Actros Semi Truck Sideguard and Safety Features

On 7 November 2019 the Mercedes-Benz Trucks Safety Dialogue was held, where experts from politics and business, and from Dekra Accident Research and the General Bicycle Association of Germany e.V. discussed innovative solutions for further improving road safety in connection with trucks for all road users. Mercedes-Benz Trucks presented the new Actros to show just what level of safety is possible on the roads, and what the manufacturer is doing in pursuit of their vision of accident-free driving: for the Stuttgart-based engineers, this path includes cutting-edge active safety systems – which are now on the roads in high numbers. From January 2020, Mercedes-Benz Trucks will equip its heavy model series with the latest generation emergency braking system with pedestrian recognition (ABA 5) Europe-wide as standard. Also, Sideguard Assist from Mercedes-Benz Trucks, which has been on the market since 2016, is now not only available ex works but also for retrofitting.

It delivers goods straight to the production line, enables house moves all across Europe, picks up our bins and ensures our fridges are kept stocked: the truck. It’s almost impossible to imagine what life would look like without it. As long as everything goes well, everyone is happy. But if a truck is involved in an accident it’s a different matter. In the worst case, the commercial vehicle becomes a vessel that can cause vast human suffering and thus high subsequent costs – both for those directly involved in the accident and also for transport and freight companies. So the message has to be: ensure the highest possible level of safety from the manufacturer’s side.

Mercedes-Benz Trucks has always been a pioneer in the industry in this respect. The corporation has invested billions of euros per year in research and development, for assistance systems to give even more support to drivers in their work and increase safety for all road users.

“Our safety assistance systems make an important contribution towards avoiding accidents which is why we aim to bring a great number of them to the roads. If we automatically equip every new Actros with our state-of-the-art emergency braking system starting in the coming year, this number will continue to increase – automatically with every new truck,” affirms Stefan Buchner, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler Truck AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Trucks.

Everything You Need To Know About Ceramic Coatings

Everything You Need To Know About Ceramic Coatings

How Ceramic Coatings Work – What Is The Best Ceramic Coating?
Find An XPEL Dealer – Sponsored By XPEL!
Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday!

We are learning all about the world of ceramic coatings! We’ll learn: What is a 9H ceramic coating? How much do ceramic coatings cost? How to apply a ceramic coating? What is a nano coating? This is all thanks to XPEL who I’ve partnered with on the video to learn about the ever popular world of coatings. They’ve recently launched their new product Fusion Plus, and what I appreciate about XPEL is that they’re very realistic about what ceramic coatings can and can’t do.

If you’ve followed the ceramic coating craze lately, you may hear claims like these coatings completely preventing scratches and rock chips, or that you’ll never need to wash your car again. Not exactly accurate, but that’s not to take away from the very real benefits that these coatings provide, like the ease of maintaining your paint’s cleanliness, protection from things like tree sap, bug guts, and bird dropping, the deep, glossy appearance, and of course the very popular hydrophobic, or water-repelling, qualities.

So let’s start with how it works, why it’s useful, and then get into some of the more common misconceptions. XPEL’s ceramic coating, fusion plus, is a silicon based product. So you have a carrier fluid containing nano-particles, and these tiny particles create an inseparable bond with your paintwork that can’t easily be washed off like a wax or sealant. Really, one of the easiest ways to think about a ceramic coating is like a semi-permanent wax or sealant.

Regarding pricing for XPEL Fusion Plus, if a car is fully wrapped in paint protective film, it will be about $800 to $1,000 depending on the size of the vehicle and local labor rates. If paint correction is required, the cost will range from about $1,200 to $2,000, depending on the level of correction required and local labor rates.
