Evolution Framed Bus Window Series

AROW’s Evolution Framed Bus Windows feature a combination of the economies of traditional transom hinged egress window designs with the premium performance and features associated with our legacy window series. Available in either standard or rapid replacement glazing configuration and with or without hidden clamp-ring fasteners, the Evolution Series can be equipped with all available graffiti protection options offered including our 3rd generation sacrificial protection shields that may be replaced in less than one minute.

Available in all common glazing and window configurations, a superior and updated low profile appearance adds an exceptional aesthetic appeal to this series of windows.

All windows in the Evolution Framed Bus Window Series are built and tested in accordance with FMVSS 217 guidelines with materials that conform to the applicable requirements of ANSI Z26.1 and the Recommended Practices defined in SAE J673.
