Euro Bus Expo 2018 Show Review

Thank you to everyone that visited us at Euro Bus Expo and helped make the show a success. PSV exhibited alongside Aesys and Fogmaker Fire Suppression.

You can find a summary of some of the products that were on display here. Use our new website enquiry builder to send any questions directly to our sales team.

Although there were many products and systems on our stand perhaps the most notable products on display were those that had been installed as original equipment by body builders including Alexander Dennis, Wrightbus, Optare, VDL and Scania.

PSV Ramps were featured on Optare and Wrightbus vehicles. Our new composite bookleaf ramp was installed to the Dublin Bus Streetlite. The ramp is the perfect solution for operators that require a powered ramp but to not have the space for a conventional bookleaf or under floor installation.

A show piece on the Alexander Dennis stand was the ADL BYD Enviro200EV demonstrator. This had been installed with Aesys destination equipment. The lighter, brighter, higher resolution displays ensured the clearest information for the bus.

Introducing the PSV Electric Powered Composite Bookleaf Ramp

PSV's electric powered composite bookleaf ramp was developed for a leading bus body builder. The builder's requirement was for a powered bookleaf ramp but due to the width and depth constraints of the vehicle PSV's standard ramp could not be used. We therefore designed a new version of our bookleaf ramp to fit the same foot print as our existing composite manual ramps. The ramp features a steel surround frame and composite moving member meaning reduced weight vs our full steel version.

The ramp is ideal for any operator with a requirement for a powered access ramp in restricted space.
