Air suspension is the general term used by many people when the vehicle is (partly) suspended on air. However, it is important to know that there are two completely different types of 'air suspension' available, auxiliary air suspension and full air suspension .
Auxiliary air suspension creates more suspension The name 'auxiliary air suspension ' says it all: this suspension supports the existing suspension of the vehicle. Auxiliary air suspension is often used on vehicles that are regularly heavily loaded. An air bellow is mounted between the chassis and the rear axle. This ensures that the vehicle again has a higher driving height and a large suspension travel. For example, auxiliary air suspension on the road contributes to more comfort and stability.
Other advantages of auxiliary air suspension are:
We offer auxiliary air suspension in three variants. Read here more about these systems.
Full air suspension - the best solution for spring problems
Full air suspension is a fully automatic (adjustable) solution for spring problems. The traditional suspension is completely replaced by a full air suspension system that filters, as it were, irregularities from the road surface. This increases driving comfort. In addition, crosswind sensitivity decreases, so full air suspension contributes to greater safety.
Full air suspension includes air bellows, height sensors, a compressor and an electronic control unit. Our complete air suspension systems come with an extensive remote control, so that all functions of the suspension system can be easily operated.
