Peterbilt Motors Company launched its SmartSound package today, designed to reduce cab noise and driver fatigue while enhancing driver comfort and safety.
Significantly reducing noise and improving in-cab comfort for day cab and sleeper equipped trucks, SmartSound can be seamlessly integrated into any interior level providing a quiet, comfortable environment for the driver with both acoustic and thermal insulating properties. A paramount benefit of the new package is a reduction of noise by up to 50 percent. Noise reduction not only improves driver concentration but also dramatically reduces driver fatigue through reduced external stress and distraction.
Landon Sproull, Peterbilt Chief Engineer said, “The Peterbilt product line is renowned for high levels of quality and comfort, and now driver safety will be enhanced with the improved acoustic properties of the SmartSound package.”
The thermal insulation qualities improve driver comfort by insulating the cab from harsh outside temperatures while increasing HVAC efficiency. Drivers with APU or auxiliary heating and cooling units should see a gain in energy efficiency when pairing the new insulation package with their in-cab power systems.
