THE ROOF WINDOW
THE ROOF WINDOW
The new panoramic cabin from CLAAS did not leave any specialist indifferent. Developed five years ago by PLASTRANCE, the roof window in Bayer’s polycarbonate sheets will be awarded at the SIMA farming fair in Paris in 2015. Measuring 1000 x 800, this new roof window revolutionizes the way of driving and using a farming tractor. Regardless if in an inside or an outside environment, the user of the new Arion T4F has a much better visual field thanks to this panoramic cabin. PLASTRANCE’s front window and roof window are connected very nicely, without any cross-piece. From the floor to the roof, the wide front window combined with the PLASTRANCE roof window provides a unique comfort for the use of the farming vehicle and an optimal comfort in the driver’s place. The CLAAS cabin offers a permanent wide vision. There is no dead angle hindering the visibility of the driver on its shovel, they can thus operate safely in various environments. In the countryside, similar to the mountains, its design allows an optimal use of the front shovel and a perfect control of the lifting and the laying of charges. Thanks to the polycarbonate sheets used in this project and to the technical development of PLASTRANCE, the user’s comfort has been put at the heart of this new design. Thanks to this, it was possible to eliminate maximum of repetitive and unpleasant moves, to which a driver is usually exposed, in order to avoid the usual back and neck aches. The composition of PC sheets reduces thermal radiation, thus lowering at the same time a greenhouse effect inside the cabin and offering an outstanding optical transparency. The heat in the cabin is reduced and the daily work conditions of the driver in the summer are improved. Moreover, the PLASTRANCE roof window is equipped with an anti-scratch coating and a UV protection which improves the resistance to abrasion, extreme weather conditions and yellowing.
