So how does it work? The aluminum passive safety poles have a nifty and reliable mechanism. In case of an impact, this mechanism ensures the complete pole will immediately shear from the socket and fly over the crashing car. Undeniable this will minimize the damage of the car and, most importantly, the chances of passengers getting severely injured. The Soluxio solar poles are also 360 degrees impact resistant. So, the solar poles can be impacted in any direction.
