less wide than the Active Space cab , the cabins Active Time and Active
Day share , however, some elements with the latter , especially as
regards the structure of the doors and side panels. The outside parts have been redesigned to favor the aerodynamics and reaffirm the bond with the Active Space cab . The interior takes the driver's seat of the Active Space .
Aerodynamics and functionality
the width of the cabins Active Time / Active Day has been reduced to
2.28 m, their external appearance is very similar to that of the Active
Space cab , wide 2,48 m. The corners of the body are rounded, as well as the front of the raised roof . The
side deflectors convey the air to the sides of the cabin, interposing a
barrier to the aerodynamic spillage from the front wheel arches . This solution avoids the contamination of the side windows , door mirrors and door handles. The
bumper is the Stralis Active Space , but the width of the cab allows
the deflectors fit within the registration of the bumper when turning
(contrary to what happens instead on the Active Space cab , where
protrude a few inches ) . The
Stralis Active Time and Active Day are more maneuverable in tight
spaces and the risk of hitting an obstacle with the cabin is reduced. It
should be noted that the lower corners of the bumper , which may come
into contact with an obstacle, anti- arranged parking on sidewalks, are
gray (instead of body color ) and interchangeable. The same bumper is divided into three parts , which makes the repairs less expensive. Halogen headlamps are protected by their own position stuck . Behind
the bumper bar is located anti -trapping (Front Underrun Protection) ,
which is compulsory in Europe from August 10, 2003 in accordance with
Directive 2000/40/EC . Its mounting as standard or options will vary from one market to another . All external accessories have been the subject of a careful aerodynamic study . This
is the case , inter alia , of the sunvisor and of the elements added on
the uprights of the windshield to neutralize the wind noises .
to distinguish the first time a cabin Active Time / Active Day cab from
an Active Space : the radiator grille has two bars instead of three
(ie, three spaces instead of four blacks ) and the flaps angle does not
rise up to the windshield.
characteristic feature profile of the vehicle: the projection of the
wings of 10 cm from the panel of the cabin, which allows you to offset
the steps, making it easier to access on board . The supporting zone and the outer edge of the steps are provided with non-slip pads . When you open the door, the stairs are lit by a spot located under the inner band , above the windscreen . The cab can be tilted at 72 ° with the aid of a hydraulic pump located behind the right front wheel . The engine air intake is through a snorkel , located at the left rear of the cabin.
aerodynamic kits are available as optional production : roof spoiler
for all cabins , a roof spoiler with lateral appendages for the Active
Time cab raised mounted on tractors , of particular interest to
compensate for the difference between the front surface of the
large-cabin 2 28 me a box semitrailer 2.55 m wide ( or even 2.60 m in the case of refrigerated vans ) . Side fairings are also provided between the front and rear wheels of the tractor .
