Exceeding the limit

Years down the road, the larger investment made now will return itself many times over in service savings. That‘s a better bus.

Buses are long-term investments and must be made to make money rather than cost it. You can expect your bus to be commercially viable 25 years from now. That‘s a bold statement, but the technology and materials we build with make no compromises on quality. Over the life of your investment this is something you will certainly appreciate.

Warranty

bus building performanceAll of our buses come with a one-year warranty. But should any faults develop after this period that we deem as unacceptable workmanship by us, we will happily repair or replace these parts free of charge at our discretion.

Lightweight body

The lighter a bus body, the more passengers, luggage and other weight the chassis will be able to carry and the lower road-user charges will be. Deterioration of the brakes, gearbox and other mechanical parts will be reduced too. Meaning more profits for you.

Rust resistance

bus building performanceThe long-term cost of building with inferior parts is especially high when it comes to your structural frame. Any owner who has experienced a rusted structure will testify to this. So we only build with galvanised steel, rustproofed inside and out, to overcome all condensation problems. For extra certainty that rust will not develop we install some well-located drainage holes.

Paint job

Your bus will look stunning for a long-time yet. The 2 pot epoxy paints we use can withstand the harshest environments. Making your paint job even more robust is the marine grade alloy panelling we use inside and out. Being marine grade it‘s less susceptible to pitting. Over time, the value of this will become obvious and repainting won‘t be required.

Floors

bus building performanceChipboard is the economic choice of many builders. But these initial savings don‘t stand up in the long run. Your bus will come with tanalised or treated ply flooring. Life expectancy is greater, sound deadening qualities are greater and should it ever get wet it is more resistant to rot, which is also a great asset. For extra protection, your floor can be polyurethane sealed, a treatment that is also available for walls.

Water proofed

Passengers never want to get wet. So we don‘t use rivets. Why? Rivets make holes that eventually leak and create rust in the ceiling and wiring. Meaning more expenses for you. Rather, we use a durable Very High Bond tape. The tape is secured with glue that carries a life time guarantee.

Wiring

bus building - wiringThe electrics in your bus will not be a long-term concern. All wiring is sheathed, extremely well secured and out of the way. Every wire is installed with a backup, so dismantling the bus for the sake of one inoperative wire won‘t be necessary. All wiring is heavy gauge to minimise voltage drop and safeguard against failure. The fuse boxes are equally impressive too. Expect ultra reliability and rapid accessibility.

LED lights

Right down to the smallest parts, buses must be built to last. LED lights have a much greater life span than their counterparts, so we use them.

Windows and seals

bus buildingThe standard anti-sun windows we use bear practical benefits. Less UV will lessen the fade on your interior trim and reduced heat transfer will extend the life of your air conditioning unit. Should one of our toughened windows ever break, replacement is easy. Because they‘re flat glass, they‘re readily available from virtually any automotive glazier in the world.
Focussing on the long term, we don‘t use rubber window seals. Rubber perishes over time and lets moisture in. Instead we use bonded urethane to lock out moisture for good.

Impact resistance

Accidents are an unfortunate part of driving. In a roll over situation your bus will be built to protect passengers and endure the impact.
