Both city buses and intercity buses are optimised to meet two main requirements: high transport capacity and fast passenger transfer. This makes wide entry and exit doors essential. Products from MAFELEC and TSL-ESCHA help passengers get on and off the bus smoothly. Push buttons in the door area on the outside of the bus help passengers open the doors and meet the normative requirements for handicapped passengers. Braille and tactile pictograms are available. All products are offered in a wide variety of colours and pictograms.
The interior of a bus is designed to be as functional as possible. Push buttons are mounted on numerous handrails, helping passengers signal a stop request. This makes the passengers’ ride as comfortable as possible. For bus interiors, MAFELEC and TSL-ESCHA offer user-friendly components such as push buttons, handrail buttons, door control units and LED signal lights. They help passengers board and disembark in greater comfort and safety. The stop request buttons, e.g. the HST series by TSL-ESCHA and the M360 series by MAFELEC, give you a very durable product to use in your vehicle, as underlying inscriptions and pictograms are protected by scratch-resistant polyamide. This ensures that the push buttons always look good.
The PK push button series has been in reliable and proven use in buses and trains for decades. Now the glass mounting variant has a modern and optimised design for installation in the glass. The new spacer ring is now restrained and therefore adapts perfectly to the door design. The plastic housing, which meets the increased fire protection requirements, is uniformly black.
