Robust and durable battery housings
Rotomoulded battery housings are becoming increasingly popular among bus manufacturers as they offer a range of advantages over other materials and methods of construction. Rotomoulding is a manufacturing process that creates a robust and durable final product. This is crucial for battery housings as they need to be able to withstand the demanding conditions of being used in buses.
Rotomoulded battery housings are made from high-density polyethylene, which is a strong and impact-resistant material. This ensures that the battery housings can withstand the wear and tear of being used in a bus and can also provide protection for the batteries inside.
UV stable housings
Rotomoulded battery housings for buses have some unique specifications regarding UV rays and sunlight. The housings are UV stable and can withstand prolonged exposure to sunlight without losing their functionality. This is important for buses, because they are mostly used in outdoor environments and need to be able to withstand the elements. It is also important for the battery housings because UV rays can damage batteries and reduce their lifespan. With the rotomoulded housings they will last longer and require less maintenance.
Lightweight for fuel efficiency
Rotomoulded battery housings are lightweight. This is an important consideration for bus manufacturers as buses need to be as lightweight as possible to improve fuel efficiency. These battery housings are much lighter than other materials such as metal or concrete, which can add unnecessary weight to the bus. This can also make the bus more difficult to maneuver and increase the wear and tear on the suspension and other parts of the vehicle. With lightweight battery housings, bus manufacturers can reduce the overall weight of the bus, improving fuel efficiency and reducing wear and tear on other parts of the bus.
