Noise can be controlled by choosing the right vehicle materials.

Sonex Light can also be ordered with Phoenix fire resistant coating.
Metsä Wood’s raw material used in plywood for passenger transport is technically superior. Therefore, we are able to produce lighter, more economical components without any loss of rigidity. Low weight structure has also a positive impact on the vehicle’s consumption. Metsä Wood plywood goes through strict quality control during the manufacturing process and as a final product. Our products for passenger transport fulfill common standards used in the bus and train industry.
