Lightweight air ducts for buses
One of the key advantages of rotomoulded air ducts is their lightweight design. Rotomoulding is a manufacturing process that involves heating plastic pellets and moulding them into a desired shape. The finished product is lightweight, yet strong and durable. This makes rotomoulded air ducts an ideal solution for bus manufacturers, as they can help to reduce the overall weight of the bus, which in turn improves fuel efficiency and reduces emissions. Air ducts are mainly positioned in heightened cabins where lightweight parts improve driving stability on the road.
Rotomoulding offers broad design possibilities:
- Lightweight design
- High degree of customization
- Complex shapes and designs, tailored to specific needs
- High degree of flexibility in the design
- Optimization of airflow and heating/cooling systems within the bus
Robust rotomoulded parts
Another key benefit of rotomoulded air ducts is their robust construction. Rotomoulding creates a monolithic structure, which means that the air ducts are made from one piece of plastic, without any seams or joints. This makes them highly resistant to damage, and ensures that they will last for a long time. Additionally, rotomoulding is a process that allows for the use of UV-stabilized materials that can withstand extreme temperatures and conditions. In addition they can be used to reinforce the surrounding parts.
