Hadley unveils new products at UMA

Posted on January 25, 2013

The newest additions to Hadley’s Interior System product line, the Swan AC and the Wave, was showcased at the 2013 United Motorcoach Association (UMA) Expo in Orlando, Fla.

The Swan AC Interior System is a complete luggage rack system that is air-conditioned “ready,” offering flexibility in the configuration of passenger amenities. Similar in appearance to Hadley’s existing Swan luggage rack system, the Swan AC includes the air channels with fully adjustable air flow nozzles built into the luggage rack. Both the Swan and the Swan AC can be configured after installation to add or modify service components and passenger amenities.

Hadley also announced the launch of their new seamless luggage rack system, the Wave. The Wave offers multiple customization options for transit bus operators with a wide range of amenities that can also be installed as an aftermarket solution. Its modularity and rattle free design will appeal to the industry. The Wave is also easy to install and is an easy to maintain, durable luggage rack system. 

Attendees of UMA also were among the first to see and operate Hadley’s new Quad Control for mirrors. The Hadley Quad Control is Hadley’s first switch to allow full control of four panes of glass, including heat function, all in one controller.

Both the Hadley Quad and Hadley Dual Control units are fully electronic rather than electronic and mechanical. The elimination of a joystick and moving mechanical parts provides for a more durable, reliable switch and creates a streamlined look in an ergonomic control pad.

 The new controls are dual voltage capable to accommodate 12v or 24v installation. This capability allows operators to include the Dual or Quad controller on any bus without concern of electronic compatibility.
