Heat Shot approved by Daimler
Heat Shot, the heated fluid windscreen clearing system, has been approved by Daimler. Approval has been given for them to be installed at factory level in Mannheim or as a customer aftermarket specification in the UK on all Euro6 Mercedes-Benz Citaros. One of the first to have this equipment installed on its Citaros is the Bristol Airport Motor Transport division, which has Heat Shot installed on its car park passenger buses. The system will help keep the vehicles on the move in adverse weather conditions and help to clear frozen or dirty windscreens all year round. According to the company, the device takes a maximum of 30 seconds from initial vehicle start up to heat fluid up for spraying onto the windscreen.
Simon Young of Heat Shot said, ‘Bristol Airport is leading the way in the UK with their decision to install heated wash windscreen technology. If there is ever a place we all want to be on time, it’s an airport! By using Heat Shot it will help prevent vehicle down time and therefore potentially reduce any unwanted delays for passengers in the car parks. Maybe more importantly, providing the bus drivers in exceptional weather conditions a clearer windscreen in a reduced timescale. We are hopeful that other UK Airports will now follow suit and take note of the positive steps Bristol have taken.’
