Protective cushioning for more safety in public transport
We produce an exceedingly wide range of polyurethane (PUR) components for the interior fittings of buses and rail vehicles. One of polyurethane's key characteristics – in addition to its low weight – is that it can be processed in varying degrees of hardness. This makes it possible to produce soft components such as cushioning as well as flexible and harder parts – for example for the lining of interior walls or for luggage racks.
Passenger comfort and convenience are always top priorities for us in the production of polyurethane components. The ergonomic characteristics of our interior components as well as their design and their look and feel are also very important. And customers can make their own choices regarding the design of surfaces. We make it all possible – from leather grains to a high-tech look. In cooperation with our customers, we develop solutions that fit perfectly for every sort of vehicle.
Soft and semi-rigid PUR
We produce soft to medium-hard cushioning made of soft and semi-rigid integral foam for the interiors of buses and rail vehicles. Possible uses include grips and shock absorbing surfaces for edges and corners as well as seat cushions and protective cushioning. For simple mounting and assembly, attachment elements such as nuts or screw threads can be built directly into the cushioning components.
We produce the following items (among others) made of soft to semi-rigid PUR:
- Seat cushions
- Impact cushions
- Chin protection pads
We produce compact systems, molded parts and housing elements made of impact-resistant and elastic polyurethane for the interiors of bus and rail vehicles. The components can be produced and delivered separately or as complete assemblies. Practical attachment elements such as threading and nuts can be integrated directly into the components during the production process. In consultation with us, customers can specify the form, color, elasticity and surface of the ordered parts for the specific needs of their project.
We produce the following items (among others) made of impact-resistant PUR:
- Paneling and covering elements
- Luggage racks
- Ceiling modules
Design of driver cockpits
Our instrument panels made of soft and hard polyurethane get top reviews from users with their excellent ergonomic characteristics and their great look and feel. And they are exceedingly tough and long-lasting. We produce dashboards on a project-specific basis: Designs can be specified to fulfill all wishes of our customers. Additional parts can also be integrated without problem in the production of customized assemblies.
Driver protection for bus drivers
Safety issues are playing an ever greater role in local public transport. For this reason, we have developed various driver protection systems that give bus drivers protection against direct assaults.
Our protective equipment made of safety glass can be installed by bus manufacturers or by transit company operators on an economical basis and with a minimum of effort.
HÜBNER's driver protection equipment does not impede drivers as they do their jobs, nor does it limit their contact with passengers or their view of the street. Handling of the systems is simple and intuitive. Depending on the situation, they can be used in various positions from open to closed.
