Motorhome heating and cooling firm Webasto has fitted one of its air heaters into a specially adapted minibus for injured troops. 

 

The Air Top Evo 3900 heater has been fitted into a Help for Heroes charity minibus, which is used to transport recovering patients at Headley Court, the rehabilitation centre for our wounded heroes. Most of the patients are wheelchair-bound so the new vehicle will offer increased flexibility and comfort.

 

Webasto’s heater will ensure that the passengers experience fast and consistent warmth, even on the coldest days. It will heat this large vehicle quickly, efficiently, and uniformly even before the trip starts and during breaks – independently of the engine. The air is heated directly in the device and then transferred to the passenger compartment. Webasto developed the Air Top Evo heating system to deliver flexible heating capacities.

 

Motorhomes can have it retrofitted

This retrofit solution is suitable for motorhomes and minibuses that require affordable and robust heating systems that are easy to install. The Air Top Evo 3900 is based on a modular concept.

 

Webasto will be exhibiting at the EUROBUS Expo 2012, from November 6 to 8 at the NEC in Birmingham. 

Help for Heroes Charity
Help for Heroes provides direct, practical support to wounded, injured and sick Service personnel, veterans, and their families. This is provided through grants to individuals and other Service charities, capital build projects and support for life at our four Recovery Centres across the UK.


"It's about the 'blokes', our men and women of the Armed Forces. It's about Derek, a rugby player who has lost both his legs, it's about Carl whose jaw is wired up so he has been drinking through a straw. It's about Richard who was handed a mobile phone as he lay on the stretcher so he could say goodbye to his wife. It's about Ben, it's about Steven and Andy and Mark, it's about them all. They are just blokes but they are our blokes; they are our heroes. We want to help our heroes." Bryn Parry.
