BODYSHELL

The RB8 bus is built with an integrated body shell structure that is safe, strong and as light as reasonably possible. It utilises High Tensile Galvanised steel tubing in combination with rolled and pressed sections to produce a vehicle of exceptional strength and durability. All hollow sections are injected with a corrosion protection coating to inhibit rust formation inside the structure. The body structure is ADR compliant.

EXTERIOR PANELLING

All exterior panels are made of GRP (fiberglass) including boot lid and side access doors and hatches. The roof panel is a one piece fiberglass sheet with extruded aluminium cant incorporating gutter recesses on both sides from front to rear.

INTERIOR PANELLING

The interior is clean and uncluttered. The interior side walls and ceiling panels are Laminex. Pillar and sill cappings are thermoformed from highly durable ASA. Front and rear header panels, and door pillar cappings are GRP mouldings with a durable finish. Modesty panels are fitted in front of the first row of seats trimmed in fabric matched to the seat trim.

WINDSCREEN

Curved one piece screen designed to maximise driver visibility. Glass thickness is 7mm laminated and produced to European ECE standard.

WINDOWS

Saloon windows are made of anti-sun tinted, toughened safety glass, bonded to the body. The driver’s door incorporates an electrically operated window.

ENTRANCE & EXIT

Standard: One (1) x 750mm plug type front door, manufactured from extruded aluminium sections with toughened safety glass window at the top and GRP panel below. The passenger door is power operated by electric drive with push button control at the driver’s instrument panel. Touch sensor along the vertical edges on both sides of the door and load sensing designed into the control system protect passengers from entrapment by the door. As an added safety feature the accelerator pedal is disabled while the passenger door is open. Mechanical emergency release handles are fitted inside and outside which allow the door to be opened manually even if there is a total electrical power failure.
