Motor Coach Lavatory Door

Vacuum Formed Parts Used In Transportation Industry

We assemble this Lavatory Door using two vacuum formed parts, attached together with adhesive. In addition, during that assembly process, an aluminum strike plate is inserted into the structure for mounting the hinge. Finally, we fill the entire assembly with a 2-part urethane foam for strength and sound deadening.

We face an ongoing challenge with the assembly of this part.   As per the design requirements, we mold both the inner and outer skins on male molds. Thus, the overlapping joint where the two parts come together displays variability due to trying to match flush two uncontrolled surfaces.  We have many years of experience making challenging parts.  Therefore, we also have many years experience in creating innovative solutions.
