How does a Roll Over Protection Systems differ to a FOPS?

A Roll Over Protection System (ROPS) and a FOPS tend to have similar design features, which can mislead people into thinking they have a ROPS. However, a FOPS is a falling object protection system and is only designed to protect the occupants of a vehicle from objects falling from overhead. It is not intended to protect the driver or passengers in the event of a rollover.
