Ladder Frame Design (Bus Bodywork)

The ladder frame design for buses with a non-load-bearing bus superstructure built as a ladder-type frame on a self-supporting chassis is suitable for special types of buses. The method of construction is significant for chassis export, since the ladder frame chassis is still in demand in developing countries. Other methods of constructing the bus bodywork are integral design, semi-integral design and composite design (ladder and grid frame).
