The present invention inflator (10) has an inflator housing (12), a diffuser (30), a frangible closure (40) and an igniter assembly (20). The igniter assembly (20) has an igniter housing (22), a squib (60) electrically actuated and fitted in an end of the igniter housing (22) and a retractable piston (50) affixed to the igniter housing (22). Upon actuation of the squib (60), the retractable piston (50) propels forward breaking the frangible closure (40) releasing gases pushing the piston (50) retractably back into or over the igniter housing (22) as the pressurized gas releases out of the diffuser (30).

The present invention relates to an airbag for a motor vehicle. The airbag comprises a gas cushion (1) which is formed from at least two layers of fabric and which is brought on inflation from a folded or rolled state into an unfolded state. The at least two layers of fabric are connected to each other at connection points to form inflated cushion portions (3) and non-inflated cushion portions (4), and the connection points have linear connection points (5) and rounded connection points (6). The linearly extending connection points (5) are arranged at an angle of 45 relative to the threads (7, 8) forming the layers of fabric, or at an angle deviating slightly there from that does not impair the tear strength of the connection points when the gas cushion (1) is in the inflated state.

An airbag cushion assembly (10, 100) has an airbag cushion (12) and an inflator (20, 120). The airbag cushion has a plurality of inflatable chambers including a primary chamber (11, 111) configured to receive inflation gas and one or more additional chambers (14, 16, 114, 115, 116) for receiving inflation gas from the primary chamber (11, 111). The inflator (20, 120) is in communication with, or open to, the gas inlet of the primary chamber (11, 111). One or more of the additional chambers has one or more one-way gas flow check valves (30, 130) for receiving inflation gases into the chamber and preventing the received gases from back flowing to maintain the one or more additional chambers at full inflation when the airbag cushion is inflated and loaded.
