Thermo King solutions had demonstrated proven performance and reliability on BC Transit's large double-decker since their installation seven years ago.
The light duty buses feature the Thermo King ShuttleAIRE SLR 65 rooftop HVAC units with ClimaAIRE controllers. The SLR is a one-piece lightweight rooftop unit that offers optimal clearance both inside and outside the vehicle. The system has a low-profile design and can be easily maintained; 90% of service and maintenance can be performed inside the vehicle.
The ClimaAIRE controller delivers precise temperature control and features an easy-to-read digital display. The display simplifies the process of assessing any system issues through on-board diagnostics, and ultimately, reduces service time through expedited troubleshooting
BC Transit purchased the new units in 2012 and 2013 and may add additional units later this year.
