IC Bus and IMMI system allows for retrofit to belted seats

Posted on July 14, 2011

WARRENVILLE, Ill. — IC Bus and IMMI this week introduced the IC Bus BTI Seating System, a new line of seating that universally offers customers the capability to retrofit from IC Bus base seats to SafeGuard belted seats or integrated child seats at any point in the future as district needs change.

IC Bus and IMMI have worked in close collaboration to design the line of SafeGuard belted seatbacks, which work seamlessly with the IC Bus seat base, and are available both on all new IC Bus units and for update on any buses equipped with IC Bus proprietary base seats sold since January 2010.

"In less than five minutes, customers can change from a base seat to a three-point belt or to an integrated child restraint seat back," said David Hillman, marketing director, IC Bus. "Customers don't have to reconfigure their bus floor — it's really a simple process."

All IC Bus brand school buses built using the IC Bus proprietary seat base since January 2010 have BTI Seating System technology, and replacement seat backs in either three-point seat belt or integrated child restraint will be available starting in October 2011, officials said.
