Aluminium bus components supplier
Thanks to Constellium’s ready to mount multi-material components, bus manufacturers are producing lighter, more economical and more fuel-efficient vehicles without jeopardizing safety or compromising on performance.
Supporting eco-friendly developments
Bus producers now seek to differentiate themselves from the competition by building greener, cleaner and more efficient vehicles. We support these strategies by furnishing them with lightweight, high-quality system extrusions, accessories and composite panels as well as sheet. We also supply completely knocked down (CKD) kits and complete bolted sub-assemblies and components.
Composite roofs and intermediate floors for buses
Ready-to-mount structural roofs and intermediate floors are made of composite panels using optimized foam core materials, aluminium exterior sheets, extrusions, and special inserts. They offer substantial weight reduction and superior thermal and acoustic insulation, while allowing direct assembly of the component into the bus superstructure by means of bonding or other cold-joining techniques.
According to customers’ requirements and needs, we can build these with or without additional components such as:
Aluminium can increase a vehicle’s size, expanding crush space for greater crash protection, while reducing its weight, increasing fuel mileage.
