Driver Bubble™, announced today that it has received approval from Transport for London, for the protection screen that fits Mercedes-Benz E-Class models.
Manufactured by FixiCover, this new version of the partition screen was also subjected to impact, light fire and chemical resistance tests to meet the legislative and automotive standards. The DriverBubble™ FixiCover TfL Shield – Mercedes E-Class is a TfL-approved partition screen crafted from 1.5mm polycarbonate for all Mercedes E-Class W213 (2017-2021) models.
Based on our clients’ recent feedback and the demand, the Mercedes E-Class was the 2nd most popular PHV in London. Therefore, it was only right for us to process the E-Class as the next vehicle for the inspection and TfL approval. After a close discussion with potential clients who have fleets of E-Classes, we wanted to understand their take on TfL approved screens for the E-Class, and the response was very positive.” said Business Development Manager, Will Cattrall.
Driver Bubble had to make one fundamental change to receive approval from TfL. The upper left and right corners of the screen have been replaced with a different, more flexible material so that side airbags can be deployed successfully in the event of collision or accident.
Driver Bubble™ has also partnered up with American Carwash, a car washing company, to offer London based customers and drivers a way to get their FixiCover TfL Shields installed professionally. Customers can now choose this service when checking out with the TfL-approved shields. You can find out more about the installation service here.
