VEHICLE CONSTRUCTION USING COMPOSITE PANELS
Coosa Composites is a transportation panel specialist, especially in commercial construction in the vehicle industry. The commercial construction industry for buses and trucks is under increasing pressure to reduce vehicle weight, improve fuel efficiency, limit downtime for repairs, and reduce their carbon footprint. Our panels address all of these needs. Coosa Composites’ panels are manufactured solely in the USA using 100% USA-sourced materials and fully comply with the Buy America certification requirements.
Our high-density, closed-cell, polyurethane foam panels reinforced with layers of fiberglass are designed to meet critical in-use requirements for structural integrity and resistance to water absorption, rot, and mold. The benefits of Coosa in the commercial construction of vehicles are that Coosa panels provide the performance standards demanded by the public transportation industry, over-the-road coaches, RVs, vans, emergency and utility vehicles, and the truck trailer construction industries. Coosa panels are used for floors, walls, ceilings, doors, bulkheads, seating, tables, desks, counters, and specialty cabinetry/storage.
Because of their superior properties when compared to traditional sandwich core panels, Coosa Composites’ products can reduce weight, lower maintenance, limit downstream warranty claims, mitigate downtime repairs, diminish fuel consumption, and reduce the carbon footprint of vehicles in commercial construction. Plus, our fire-rated panel enhances the safety of passengers by improving the fire safety of the vehicle and potentially elongating the time available for evacuation in the event of a fire emergency. This is especially important to LNG or electric vehicle manufacturers.
