GERMANY: Kiekert unveils door protection system

Kiekert says it plans to introduce a 'brake system' for car doors to be known as i-protect.

Kiekert says it plans to introduce a ‘brake system’ for car doors to be known as i-protect.

The sensor-based system is designed to reduce sheet metal damage by automatically stopping car doors from striking other objects as they are being opened. The concept was initially developed by students at Cologne’s Erzbischoefliche Liebfrauenschule in Germany. “The mechanism built into Kiekert’s i-protect system will stop car doors from slamming into parked cars, garage walls and other obstacles and potentially could eliminate millions of irritating and often costly dents,” said Kiekert CEO, Karl Krause.
