Lightweight, Pultruded Plank Flooring System for Van Conversion, Cutaway, Shuttle, & Medium-duty, and Light Rail Transit Applications
Faroex's newest composite flooring product is comprised of three, modular, interlocking planks. Each plank consists of a pultruded skin encapsulating a core of end-grain balsa or ultra-lite, foam-filled, phenolic-infused craft paper honeycomb, bracketed on each face by a layer of sound-deadening cork, creating a very adaptable, lightweight product of exceptional strength and durability.
Ideal for body-on-chassis vehicles and medium-to-heavy duty urban transit buses with or without integral structures, plank kits are supplied cut to shape, ready to install or as bare lineals to be processed by the OEM. Options include: extruded aluminum seat rails; variable geometry for 98” and 102” vehicles; cut-to-shape, high density edges to clear side posts; and wheel chair ramps. Select floor coverings can be factory-bonded or applied after installation.
The 3-plank system offers the ultimate in design flexibility. With no tooling cost for ¾” (19mm) standard format, Faroex's pultruded composite flooring speeds assembly, reduces labour, eliminates leaks, and completely eliminates piece-built plywood, composite, or phenolic floor assemblies. 31% lighter than ACQ plywood and stiffer - allowing greater un-reinforced spans – Faroex's planks are supplied compliant to FMVSS 302, or to Docket 90A ASTM E-119. Patents pending in North America and select Eu countries.
