FHR Devices (Frontal Head Restraints) are used in almost every form of motorsport. They are compulsory in most motor racing events worldwide due to the life-saving benefits they provide. The HANS device is used in NASCAR, F1, NHRA, IHRA, USAC, Rally, Drag Racing, Drifting, WOO, Champ Car, Sprint car and most forms or Autograss, Stock Car Racing and oval racing worldwide. It has been proven that many drivers who have tragically lost their life’s due to impacts in motorsport would have been saved if they had been wearing a FHR device.
The purpose of a FHR device is to stop the head from whipping forward in a crash, without otherwise restricting movement of the neck. In a crash, an unprotected body is decelerated by the seatbelt with the head maintaining velocity until it is decelerated by the neck. The HANS device maintains the relative position of the head to the body, with the device transferring energy to the much stronger chest, torso, shoulder, seatbelts, and seat as the head is decelerated.
The Hans Adjustable rake device is the only FHR device offered by hans which can suit a full range of seating positions. The design of the uses a spline system which allows the driver to make adjustments in 5 degree increments to fine tune the device for them. It is the most cost efficient FIA approved device for 30 degree and 40 degree layback angles. This device is supplied with foam pads for comfort and weights in at 970g. The recline (layback) angle options makes this device ideal for all forms of motorsport including rally / oval racing / saloon car racing / folmula racing / single seater / kit car. The new sliding tether system is fitted as standard, providing much greater freedom of movement for the driver whilst racing. The driver can make the adjustment in a matter of seconds, just simply use the tools provided to wind out the securing nut, move the spline and secure the nut.
