The robust construction of the new cab trim was developed for departments needing extreme duty interiors due to their rigorous use of the apparatus.
“Many years ago all we had were ‘metal’ dash boards and limited interior trim options, around 25 years ago the industry migrated to ABS interior trim allowing for automotive-type styling,” said Joe Hedges, E-ONE product manager. “Recently we’ve seen a growing number of departments requesting interiors with more robust components, so we’ve reinvented the metal dash into a severe duty interior.”
The severe duty interior features rugged .125” aluminum Zolatone™ painted center dash, officer side dash and “A” post covers with easy wiring access through the hinged service panel on top of the center dash. The engine cover features a .125” WearTrak™ cover with .375” of foam insulation to dampen noise and vibrations. The severe duty interior options are an excellent complement to E-ONE’s rugged extruded aluminum cab design that exceeds SAE-J2420, SAE-J2422 and ECE-R29 crash standards.
Severe duty cab options also include a recessed Mobile Data Terminal (MDT) provision for officer, MDT swivel post-type mount for officer side of the engine cover, officer glove box with hinged door, full height or barrier style doors, door panels constructed of 14 gauge brushed finish stainless steel or .125” smooth aluminum plate painted to match the cab interior, as well as several other options suited for severe duty.
Departments now have greater equipment mounting options with the severe duty cab interior for items such as two-way radios, speakers, monitors, chargers, etc.
