Quality Inside & Out
Chassis & Cabin
Especially for long-distance drivers, who often travel roads and motorways for days on end, the cabin is a kind of a second home.
During the drive, it represents the workplace, in the necessary resting phases it serves as living and sleeping quarters. The requirements for ergonomics, safety and comfort are correspondingly diverse.
To do this balance justice, Ferdinand Bilstein offers a wide range of cabin components for professional vehicle repairs, including gas springs, tipping cylinders, cabin suspensions and shock absorbers, locking cylinders and gear shift knobs – of course in original equipment quality.
Even seemingly insignificant parts such as mirrors are of enormous importance for safety when driving. Poor workmanship can lead to impaired visibility – and in the worst case to accidents.
In order to be able to offer the highest quality in the Independent Aftermarket, febi bilstein has now added MEKRA Lang-mirrors to its product portfolio. The spare parts of the highest OEM quality are extensively tested to ensure that the fields of vision demanded by law and the applicable regulations are reliably met.
The extensive febi bilstein range offers mirrors for numerous leading truck brands as well as for vans.
Since the driver often spends many hours in the driver's cab every day, and for a few days in a row, comfort is an important topic.
As soon as the vehicle moves, the cabin suspension plays a central role – it must perform perfectly, especially on bad roads.
If the cabin suspension and mounting are noticeable by noise, atypical vibrations or movements, they should be checked for possible defects.
Ferdinand Bilstein offers a comprehensive range of driver cab bearings and shock absorbers, which have been intensively tested by our certified quality management.
Typically, the cab tipping system is a hydraulic system consisting of a manual or electric pump, hydraulic lines and a hydraulic cylinder.
It is often neglected, since it is not required for regular driving operations. However, if the driver's cab has to be tipped, it is particularly annoying if this component does not work and the access to the engine is denied.
Therefore, the components of the driver's cab tipping system should be regularly inspected and exchanged for high-quality components in case of repair.
