Moving people with expert engineering
In Europe, buses and coaches cater for 55 per cent of public transport requirements. Every minute of every day, in countless towns and cities around the world, there are thousands of passengers depending on bus or coach services, for social, commuting and business purposes.
Pailton’s bespoke steering systems, from sliding steering sharts to suspension links are tested against these relentless conditions, ensuring the vehicle is agile and nimble when driving at speed, changing lanes and manoeuvring.
Testing to the limits
We carry out in-house validation testing to determine endurance and maximum load, testing against incidents such as curb strikes and pot holes that a bus or coach will face from time to time. Environmental testing is also undertaken to ensure a large steering system is protected sufficiently from moisture, temperature fluctuations and humidity variance.
