AMBIENT LIGHTING MAKES SLEEPER FEEL MORE LIKE HOME ON PETERBILT MODELS 579, 567
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (March 26, 2014)
Providing operators with greater comfort, convenience and ergonomics, Peterbilt Motors Company now offers an ambient lighting package for select sleepers on its Models 579 and 567, the company announced during the Mid-America Trucking Show.
“Peterbilt sleepers are designed to provide customers with amenities and features that create an environment with as much of a home-like feel as possible,” said Robert Woodall, Peterbilt Director of Sales and Marketing. “We want customers to maximize their time in the sleeper, whether it’s for rest or work. Our new ambient lighting package gives operators more control over light intensity with dimmable, indirect lighting – it’s optimized for outstanding coverage and can be adjusted to accommodate the needs of the driver.”
The ambient lighting package features all LED bulbs for longer life and reduced power consumption. LED light has a softer, more relaxing illumination versus traditional incandescent bulbs.
Point lighting is strategically positioned in the sleeper work space and the central floor area of the cab. Dimmable lights are located in the upper back wall and foot well areas of the sleeper.
The ambient lighting package is available for the Models 579 and 567 equipped with 72- and 80-inch Platinum sleepers.
