Products and concepts for buses

We build 1.60 meters of the bus

Without HÜBNER, articulated buses would be missing something –  exactly 1.6 meters right in the middle of the bus! 1.6 meters equipped with the latest technology and engineering solutions. HÜBNER provides complete, ready-to-install connection systems for all types of articulated and bi-articulated buses in low-floor and high-floor models. These systems include the articulation system, the folding bellows, power connection components, electronic articulation control and components for the bus interior.

Our 1.6 meters of bus is a complete plug-and-play system ready for installation as the connection between the front and back parts of an articulated bus. The complete system of 1.6 meters of bus is delivered on load carriers so that it can be mounted into a bus that is under construction in a period of less than a few hours.

Product overview

The name HÜBNER and the best in bus engineering have had a long and successful association over many years. The first folding bellows for articulated buses were produced by HÜBNER in 1952 – followed by a continuous series of groundbreaking innovations. These included the first low-floor articulation in regular series production, the first redundant articulation damping system, and more recently the new articulation family HNGK 19.5, which stands out with its distinctively lightweight design, as well as the first halogen-free folding bellows.

The in-house departments for research and development are continually working on improvements, including on innovative folding bellows materials. There is also ongoing testing for new materials with optimized fire safety standards and higher environmental compatibility. Partnerships with leading scientific institutes support knowledge transfer and the inclusion of the latest technological developments.

Product enhancements and innovations are always designed to benefit the customer. For example with color design. Now it's possible to integrate the vehicle gangways into the overall optical design of the connected bus segments. Another new trend is the use of translucent bellows materials. These let sunlight come into the gangway sections, creating a new and more friendly atmosphere.

 

Comfort and safety when entering the bus

HÜBNER is also the perfect partner in the field of door safety. Since 2019 the company GWU is also part of the HÜBNER Group. With this acquisition, the Group has assumed a strong position in the bus industry. And we are leaders in the field of door sealing and safety systems for the entire mobility sector. Special highlights of the product range are innovative safety systems to protect passengers from being caught in automatic doors. GWU has also developed finger protection profile with integrated light curtains as a safety technology for the bus entry area. 

For persons with disabilities, HÜBNER Transportation GmbH produces customized, user-friendly ramps and lifts for convenient vehicle entry. These bus entry systems eliminate mobility barriers and fulfill the highest safety and quality requirements.
