Bus components

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 components

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.

Composite panels

According to customers’ requirements and needs, we can build these with or without additional components such as:

  •  
    panels with interior and/or exterior painting,
  •  
    cut-outs with seals for cables and air ducts,
  •  
    fixations and mounting of air conditioning equipment,
  •  
    fixations for handrails, mounting of ceilings and air grilles.

Key-fact

Aluminium can increase a vehicle’s size, expanding crush space for greater crash protection, while reducing its weight, increasing fuel mileage.
