Transit COVID Curtain FAQ

 

Q: Does the Transit Curtain meet US Federal School Bus specifications?
A: It meets FMVSS 571.302 for fire resistance

Q: Are the Curtains approved for use on School Buses in all provinces?

We have not pursued provincial approvals as this is designed to be a stop-gap measure until the COVID issue is resolved. As they are approved across USA under FMVSS 571.302 Safety Standards, amendments should not be a problem.

However many provinces are working on making this work for the 2020/2021 school year, even though it falls outside the current standards. Given the current regulations do not accommodate an event this catastrophic to school attendance, new amendments are being drafted.

We have been in discussions with Transport Canada and provided documentation.

That being said, we are a premium School Bus Video and Student Safety Technologies provider for Canada. These COVID Curtains are an interim solution that can possibly allow for classes to resume with minimum interruptions during this time.
