The kangaroo safety system -
another amazing patented technology of ZIKUN

The Kangaroo safety system was developed for the transportation of hazardous materials (general cargo).
 
The chassis frame is shaped as a collecting basin. A specially developed channeling system integrated into the loading area enables the leaking liquids to drain off into the collecting basin below. Even in case of a tipped over vehicle, the collecting system is designed in a way that only small quantities will leak.
 
In order not to affect the vehicle's handling quality in a negative way in case of potentially leaked hazardous material, the collecting basin is equipped with additional cross beams and baffles.
 
In order to be able to drain the collecting basin after a leakage without difficulty it is equipped with closeable drains in its lowest points.
 
The collecting basin can be equipped optionally with sensors which warn the driver visually and/or acoustically in case of a leakage. Thus he is able to take countermeasures without delay and avoid danger from the environment.
 
Depending on the size of the external setup and of the quantity of liquid to be expected, the size of the collecting basin can be designed variably.
