Body concept

Carthago roof - wall joint: The typical Carthago curved roof is not only an unmistakeable design element but with the frame members on the inside, provides a decisive contribution to the main cabin rigidity. And this being without any thermal bridges.

Carthago roof structure: Outer side GRP = hail protection and at the same time, protection against lightning strike from the aluminium inner side (Faraday cage). The aluminium inner side also assumes the function of heat storage

Carthago side wall construction: Aluminium on the outside of the wall, but also on the inside of the wall is not only a requirement for an effective lightning protection, it also ensures for the efficient heat storage and thus, for the typical pleasant Carthago living climate. This creates an equal thermal radiation effect = wall heater.

Carthago lower-level scooter garage: Maximum loading height thanks to the lower-level scooter garage. Extremely high-load capacity wall - floor joints from shape-fitting bonded frame members. Can be loaded up to 350 kg.

Carthago floor - wall joint: The side wall - floor joint is carried out via a highly-stable frame member on both sides that is bonded shape-fitted over the entire length in the same manner as in aircraft construction. And in the worst case, it offers the protective effect of a side collision protection. A thermal bridge stop reliably prevents any thermal bridges.

Carthago floor panel: The Carthago floor panel has an allround protection. Lower and upper sides made from GRP and in-between there is a hard foam insulating core made from RTM Styrofoam. It is highly stable and has a lifelong protection against humidity and rotting.

Lightning protection effect tested

Aluminium on the roof and insides of the walls offer protection like a Faraday cage. Additional lightning conductors in the chassis decisively increase this protection effect. The lightning protection test has proven: a Carthago main cabin offer verified protection against lightning strikes!


Hail protection

The Carthago top side of the roof made from GRP provides effective protection against hail and saves money due to reduced insurance premiums. The special feature: the protective effect against lightning strike remains thanks to the aluminium on the inside of the roof.


Stone chipping protection / underride guard

GRP also provides protection in the areas you cannot see. The Carthago GRP floor underside ensures for permanent protection against damage caused by stone chipping, rotting and humidity. Throughout the years - without the cost of for maintenance! The lowered frame of the scooter garage also serves as an undersideguard and prevents collision damage.


Moisture protection

The Carthago body provides real all-round protection. The design therefore protects from moisture and the resulting consequential damage. Reliably and in the long run. Based on this promise, we grant a leakproof warranty of up to 10 years..

Repair-friendliness

During the development of the main body components, attention was paid to having multi-part segmentation. In event of damage, this makes replacement easier and saves money. For example, at the rear there is a separately replaceable rear bumper.
