Aerotech has been crash tested in an automotive testing facility. The steel-reinforced composite body is highly resistant to impact, rust, and corrosion. The gelcoat exterior keeps its glossy finish for the life of the vehicle and absorbs temperature at a lower rate than metal, making the bus easier to heat and cool. The fiberglass body panels allow minimal sound transmission, resulting in a quieter interior for improved passenger comfort.
