The potential for disastrous human loss is present in most fire events. In public transportation vehicles such as busses it could be catastrophic.Apart from arson, there are a few common reasons for the ignition of buses or coaches amongst them extreme heat, vehicle vibration, material fatigue or malfunction, fuel / hydraulic fluids leakage or electric short circuit as well as inadequate maintenance.
Many bus fire events originate in either the engine or battery compartments, which are usually out of the driver’s sight. It is therefore difficult for the driver to notice a fire if it occurs which might result in a slow response time increasing both life loss and damage risk.
Lehavot developed BusShield by leveraging its experience as a primary supplier for all of the in-service military Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles developed to counter the IED threat over the last ten years. Amongst other innovations, this work saw the company develop an advanced Fast Release Valve able to rapidly counter blossoming explosions and keep military operators safe.
As well as compliance with UNECE R107, Lehavot and BusShield are certified to ISO 9001:2008, as well as FM Approved and proudly P-Mark badged. The Delta detectors are additionally rated to MIL-STD 810, 461 and 1275.
