To deploy an inflatable member, such as an occupant restraint safety bag in a motor vehicle, a liquid propellant is expelled from a storage reservoir into a reaction chamber through ports created at frangible pressure points in the reservoir wall and ignited by detonation of an explosive charge to generate a non-toxic, bag inflating gas by exothermic reaction.
Apparatus for deploying an inflatable member comprising, in combination: A. a reaction chamber connected in fluid flow communication with the inflatable member; B. a reservoir disposed within said reaction chamber, said reservoir having a plurality of ports communicating with said reaction chamber and pressure sensitive sealing means normally closing said ports; C. a quantity of liquid propellant stored in said reservoir; and D. means for pressurizing said liquid propellant to open said sealing means and to expel said liquid propellant from said reservoi...
