IC Bus and IMMI have introduced the IC Bus BTI Seating System, a new line of seating designed to offer customers the capability to retrofit from IC Bus base seats to SafeGuard belted seats or integrated child seats at any point in the future as district needs change.
“The new IC Bus BTI Seating System allows our customers the option to use the new line of seatbacks on the existing IC Bus seating platform,” says David Hillman, IC Bus marketing director. “In less than five minutes, customers can change from a base seat to a three-point belt or to an integrated child restraint seat back. Customers don’t have to reconfigure their bus floor – it’s really a simple process. The BTI Seating system is just another example of how IC Bus is committed to supporting our customers long after the sale of the bus.”
IC Bus and IMMI say they have worked in close collaboration to design the line of SafeGuard belted seatbacks, which work seamlessly with the IC Bus seat base and are available both on all new IC Buses and for update on any buses equipped with IC Bus proprietary base seats sold since January 2010.
“Over the course of the past year, we have worked very closely with IC Bus engineering and production to design, test and set up manufacturing for this new seating line,” says Aaron Acton, account manager for SafeGuard, a brand of IMMI. “Together, we’re giving IC Bus customers an exceptionally simple, affordable means of updating their fleets.”
All IC Bus brand school buses built using the IC Bus proprietary seat base since January 2010 have BTI Seating System technology, and replacement seat backs in either three-point seat belt or integrated child restraint will be available starting in October.
