Pfaff Verkehrstechnik has expanded its product portfolio to include solutions for servicing and maintenance work on the roofs of a wide variety of buses, primarily on electric and gas-powered vehicles.
The new roof working platforms with an adjustable height of 1.5m to 4.5m can be flexibly adapted to the respective bus fleet due to different segment lengths of 3m to 9m according to the modular principle, regardless of whether it is simple buses measuring 12m, double- decker buses measuring 14m or articulated buses measuring 18m.
The electromechanical, telescopic platforms and sliding fall protections at the front and rear ensure ergonomic all-round fall protection, regardless of which fleet vehicle is currently in the work area. Employees reach their workplace on the roof of the vehicle safely via adjustable stairs with the correct step height. Optional components such as crane systems for battery replacement, various lighting systems, signalling systems or monitored access doors further increase safety.
With the new roof working platforms, the company is responding to the growing market for electromobility and the operational safety required here. Electromobility is an important future-oriented topic, not only in Germany. The environmentally conscious country of Sweden is also considered a pioneer in this field; Pfaff Verkehrstechnik has already delivered a system to a Swedish company, and further projects are in the pipeline.
The conversion of vehicle fleets to sustainable drive systems in local public transportation is currently being promoted throughout Europe by the EU Clean Vehicle Directive. Electric vehicles play a vital role in this. They contribute to climate protection and also reduce dependence on fossil fuels. They have thus developed into a driving force within the context of energy system transformation.
Pfaff Verkehrstechnik recently supplied height-adjustable roof working platforms to DVG to maintain and repair its bus fleet.
Pfaff Verkehrstechnik has reached international success with their height-adjustable access platforms for bus roof and window maintenance.
