AL-KO AIR LINE

Tailored Air Suspension Systems

Comfortable and safe driving is an important factor whatever the commercial application. AL-KO Air Line systems have been specifically developed to offer a range of tailored suspension options improve the driving dynamics of your vehicle.

SUSPENSION & COMFORT

Excellent vehicle and driving comfort

  • -

    Electronically controlled, fully automatic air suspension system.

  • -

    Special air bellows with waisted piston and integrated buffer stop.

  • -

    Optimally matched high performance shock absorber with int. progressive Cellasto spring.

Good suspension and driving comfort

  • -

    Manual, external air supply.

  • -

    Special air bellows with waisted piston and integrated buffer stop.

  • -

    Optimally matched high performance shock absorber with int. progressive Cellasto spring.

Offers improved driving comfort

  • -

    Manual, external air supply.

  • -

    Increases roll stability.

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

Full air suspension for AL-KO AMC rear axle.

Additional air suspension for the AL-KO AMC rear axle.

The following is fitted on the AL-KO AMC Chassis:

The following is fitted on the AL-KO AMC Chassis:

- A trailing link axle with special air bellows, high performance shock absorbers.

- A trailing link axle with special air bellows, high performance shock absorbers.

- A maintenance free air compressor unit with air dryer.

The following are located in the driver‘s cab of the AL-KO AMC Chassis:

The following are located in the driver‘s cab of the AL-KO AMC chassis:

  • -

    The ECAS control electronics.

  • -

    The remote control.

  • -

    A fitted double pressure gauge with which the air bellows can be supplied with air, via valves

(garage/compressor).

Additional air suspension for the original base vehicle, rear axle.

An AL-KO dealer can fit two air bellows on the original base vehicle (eg. Fiat Ducato Type 230), between the leaf spring and the chassis frame.

These are connected to the dual pressure gauge which can be located in the driver‘s cab or near the rear wheel (for easy access).

ASSEMBLY

Only as Original Equipment Supply on the AL-KO AMC Chassis conversion.

Only as Original Equipment Supply on the AL-KO AMC Chassis conversion.

Applies to the following vehicles: - FIAT Ducato - PEUGEOT Boxer - CITROËN Relay

Applies to the following vehicles: - FIAT Ducato - PEUGEOT Boxer - CITROËN Relay

LEVEL CONTROL

Fully automatic level control

Manual level control

Can be fitted to the following base vehicles

  • -

    FIAT Ducato

  • -

    PEUGEOT Boxer

  • -

    CITROËN Relay

Fitting is possible by AL-KO dealers as original equipment or as a retrofit option on chassis, flat beds and box bodies.

Manual level control

Better cornering and all-round driving performance.

Challenging driving conditions and obstacles are easier to circumvent and overcome.

Air Line systems also provide advantages for a stationary vehicle, ensuring that it remains level even on steep gradients.

Air Premium

Air Premium is a fully automatic, Electronically Controlled Air Suspension (ECAS) system. Air Premium provides driving comfort comparable to car suspension systems, and is maintenance-free. The ECAS system includes inductive level sensors which provide the vehicle constant, independent level positioning, irrespective of load state.
