Bumpy bus journeys are a thing of the past thanks to suspension systems from VB-Airsuspension

Placed on 08/11/2017

Most minibuses are equipped with nice seats and air conditioning to make the journey as pleasant as possible for the passengers. But this alone is not sufficient to ensure a comfortable journey, since comfort begins with the air suspension fitted to the bus. Our innovative air suspension systems and suspension applications help to ensure optimum ride comfort, increased stability and greater safety. An investment in one of these systems can be recouped by charging no more than an extra couple of pence per kilometre, making for a more pleasant bus journey all round.

Regardless of whether the minibus is carrying one or several passengers, each passenger should reach their destination comfortably and safely. Our intelligent air suspension systems and suspension applications ensure that the minibus remains stable, easily manoeuvrable and at a constant ride height under all conditions. The minibus is less sensitive to crosswinds and unevenness in the road surface, leans less when cornering and responds effectively during sudden evasive and braking manoeuvres, even when the load distribution in the bus is uneven. These systems and applications minimise vibrations in the chassis, ensuring a smooth, relaxing journey for both the driver and the passengers.

High level of interest in special shock absorbers with FSD technology at the Busworld trade fair in Kortrijk
From 20th to 25th October we attended the Busworld trade fair, which took place this year in Kortrijk (Belgium) for the final time. With more than 35,000 international visitors, the trade fair was a huge success for everyone involved, including us. There was a great deal of interest in the products displayed on our stand: full air suspension, semi air suspension and shock absorbers with FSD technology. Frequency selective damping allows these special shock absorbers to vary the damping force. This product is available for the front and rear axles on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, Volkswagen Crafter and other vehicles. This results in improved vehicle handling for vehicles in this class.
