Vapor to introduce bus operator’s protection door at APTA conference

Posted on May 12, 2016

Vapor Bus International, A Wabtec Co., will introduce its new vShield™ Protection door at the American Public Transportation Association's Bus & Paratransit Conference in Charlotte, N.C., May 15 to 18.

The vShield™ Protection door includes features that address bus operator comfort and safety. The door includes two, integrated electric fans for optimal air circulation in the cockpit area. An electrically operated window allows for increased air flow and ventilation, and permits operator/passenger interaction. A heavy-duty, dovetail latch mechanism maintains positive contact to eliminate rattle, while a large, contoured, laminated safety glass is contoured to allow direct visibility to mirrors.

The vShield door is custom designed for each vehicle for exact fit. See demonstration at booth #304 at the APTA Bus & Paratransit Conference in Charlotte.
