VB-FullAir is a fully-automatic air suspension solution offering the following benefits:

 

A constant ride-height: VB FullAir ensures that the vehicle stays at a constant (lower) ride height regardless of the vehicle load - the rear of the vehicle will not drop due to the load and this in turn has a positive influence on the fuel consumption.

Adjustable floor height: The air-suspension system is equipped with a raise and lower switch which offers the opportunity to change the height of the rear of the vehicle to ease coupling/decoupling of a trailer or to ease loading/unloading of the vehicle. This is a vastly cheaper alternative to using tail lifts or forklift trucks for heavy loads, without the need for extra insurance or specialised training.

Improved road handling: Modification of the shock absorbers improves the vehicle's road handling, straight driving and this will also reduce tyre wear.

Improved stability: Due to the unique VB-Air Suspension construction, every air-suspension system has its own integrated stabiliser. This improves the vehicle's stability and offers the driver the a safer feeling.

Better comfort: The air-suspension system filters the unevenness of the road so the passengers are subjected to less vibration. This increases comfort and reduces fatigue.

What is installed?: The system consists of vehicle specific kits to fit most small vans (upto 3.5 ton) and motorhome models, the existing leaf- or coil-spring is disassembled and replaced with air-bellows, shock absorbers, compressor and an electrical control unit.

Improved ride – Air suspension can provide a smoother ride, improving shock absorbency for rough road surfaces – The use of the VB FullAir in the Paris Dakar Rally is testament to the systems effectiveness. Installed on the VW Amarok for competition and on the press and adjudicators vehicles, the occurrence of spinal compression injuries were reduced to zero for the 2012 race.
