The seats are fitted with lap and diagonal belts and fully comply with current EU legislation for seat belt anchorages. Through continuous research and development Rescroft® has a wide range of quality products supplied to Europe and extending to other countries conscious of the need to reach high standards of occupant safety in passenger vehicles.
