VB-FullAir is an automatic, adjustable solution for suspension problems. The existing leaf or coil spring suspension is replaced with a full air suspension system. This system includes air springs, shock absorbers, height sensors, a compressor and an electronic control unit (VB-ASCU). The air suspension system filters out unevenness in the road surface, improving ride comfort.
While driving, the vehicle will constantly remain at the ride height set by VB-Airsuspension during installation. The driveability and stability of the vehicle are improved, which in turn increases safety. When the vehicle is at a standstill (in some cases with the handbrake on), the entry/loading platform height can be increased and decreased to comfortably enter and exit the vehicle and for goods to be conveniently loaded and unloaded.
Full air 2C is a full air suspension for the rear axle, for models released by the car manufacturer after 2006. With the VB-FullAir 2C the 2 airbags are individually controlled on each wheel hence the name 2C.
A special handheld has been developed for the motorhome to operate the 2 corner Full Air 2C, image below.
- VB-FullAir 3C which is a semi air suspension system for the front axle and a full air suspension system for the rear axle
- VB-FullAir 4C which is a full air suspension system for the front and rear axle
Advantages of a full air suspension:
A constant ride height
The electronic control ensures that, irrespective of the loading condition, the vehicle always has the ride height set by VB-Airsuspension. With a maximum load of the vehicle, the rear will therefore not “hang”. The constant driving height also has a positive influence on fuel consumption.
To ensure that the braking pressure corresponds to the vehicle’s loading condition, an ALR unit is installed (if the vehicle has an ALR) which, depending on the air pressure in the bellows, adjusts the correct braking pressure.
Adjustable load floor height
The air suspension system is equipped with a level switch as standard. This switch offers the possibility (if the parking brake is applied) to change the height of the rear of the vehicle (lowering / rising). For example, loading and unloading or connecting and uncoupling a trailer can be simplified.
The use of an air suspension system requires an adjustment to the dampers in most cases. VB-Airsuspension delivers the right set of dampers with every air suspension system so that the vehicle gets better road holding and becomes more stable. Due to the improved road holding, the tire wear will decrease.
Due to the unique construction of VB-Airsuspension, every air suspension system has an integrated stabilizer. This increases the stability of the vehicle, and thereby contributes to the sense of safety that the driver must have when driving in a vehicle.
An air-suspension system filters the unevennesses from the road surface, as a result of which less energy (vibrations) is transmitted to the occupants. This is experienced as particularly pleasant and causes a less tired feeling. Partly for this reason, more and more car manufacturers are switching to air suspension.
