DEDICATED TO THE DRIVER
Comfort, safety and efficiency are at the heart of DAF design. From the comfortable cab and superior safety features to its sleek good looks, the DAF range is designed to make life easier for the professional truck driver and operator.
Driver comfort and satisfaction are essential elements to safer trucking. Clever cab ergonomics can lead to less distraction and less fatigue by increasing the ease of operation for the transport professional.
Comfort and Convenience in a Safer Environment
A DAF Truck interior is designed around the driver's needs. With fully adjustable seats, logically grouped controls around the driving position, and a dashboard that would look at home in a luxury passenger vehicle, it becomes clear that safety and ease of operation were given the highest design priority. This means less distraction and less fatigue, making driving safer, more comfortable and less stressful. Once inside the cab, the sense of roominess is evident, accentuated by the large windscreen and side windows. The intelligent use of space and high-quality materials in warm yet practical colours creates an ergonomic environment that is both productive and pleasant.
A Touch of Class
Special attention is given to the aesthetic design of the interior and durability of the materials. There are lighter trim colours for less frequently used areas, and darker, easier to clean shades for frequently touched areas. The camel grey coloured interior gives a comfortable feeling and offers a pleasant working and living atmosphere. Materials and finishes equal those of top class passenger cars, as do the well thought out comfort elements. The vents in the door panels, for instance, create a warm or cool air 'curtain' along the side windows for optimum driver comfort.
Drivers will appreciate the generous and practical storage facilities of the DAF cab. The Day Cab has a large lockable tray and cup holder on the engine tunnel and practical storage space above the windscreen. The Sleeper Cab also has storage space under the lower bunk. The under bunk storage locker on the left-hand side is insulated from odours and is accessible from the outside only. For long distance operation, the roomy Space Cab provides standing height on the engine tunnel, extensive storage space, including large illuminated lockers above the windscreen and room for home comforts like a TV, refrigerator and microwave.
