A video has been released by taxi manufacturers LEVC to demonstrate how air flows in factory built partitioned black cabs.
The integral feature, that is standard in all black cabs, shows how the central protection screen creates separation between driver and passengers, especially relevant during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Coventry based taxi manufacturer claims the factory-fitted screens meet the very highest standards with no other partition able to claim Whole Vehicle Type Approval (for environmental, safety and security standards).
Building on the benefits provided by the protection screen, LEVC have now also introduced a Protection Screen Seal Kit which provides virtually no air flow leakage.
Quick and simple to install, it further reduces the flow of air between the front and rear compartments by eliminating the air gap around the perimeter of the screen and at the payment tray.
To convey the health protection benefits of the protection screen, a smoke machine was used to demonstrate how the air moves within the vehicle in a range of scenarios.
