CROCO or CAYMAN — which to choose?

In the modern world, where information is available in unlimited quantities, the problem of choice becomes especially relevant. Our store offers rack-and-pinion electric drives for minibuses with sliding doors: SESAME, CROCO and CAYMAN. Previously, we have already made a visual comparison of the first two drives, and now it’s our turn to compare CROCO and CAYMAN.

To help you decide, we have prepared a comparison table that will help you make a choice.

     It can be seen from this table that each drive has its own features. Both are recommended for commercial passenger transportation. But a CAYMAN with a powerful engine works perfectly in mountainous terrain, opens the door wider, has a smooth deceleration before closing and does not require regular maintenance. However, CROCO is cheaper, more practical to repair and has various versions in its line, with the possibility of connecting additional devices that improve safety.

It is worth considering the technical and aesthetic components of the installation capability. Therefore, in order to accurately and without mistakes choose between CROCO and CAYMAN, we recommend contacting our sales department specialists. They will help you choose the optimal drive and its configuration for your car.

One thing is for sure, no matter what you choose — both the CROCO and the CAYMAN are the optimal solution for the sliding door of a minibus.
