INTRODUCTION
he Ricon CityView® and CityView II® Standard Frame and Hidden Frame windows delivers a significant
aesthetic statement that maximizes curb appeal. The sleek, seamless presentation of the glazing surface
provides the advanced styling preferred by progressive transit agencies and the communities they serve. The
integrated Ricon 3-Minute Window® design also allows for rapid glazing replacement.
The exclusive Ricon 3-Minute Window® saves time and money by allowing operators to replace glazing in approximately three minutes. There is no need to remove the frame from the vehicle because the rapid replacement design uses a
unique patented metal retainer system to securely fix the window into the frame.
This manual contains installation instructions; inspection criteria; maintenance and replacement instructions. It is important to user safety that the operator and/or maintenance technician be completely familiar with the operating and replacement instructions. Once the window is installed, it is very important that the window be properly maintained by following the Ricon recommended cleaning, maintenance, and inspection instructions.

tempered glass, meeting AS2 and AS3 Light Transmittance (LT) requirements. Driver’s windows shall be
supplied using tempered glass or laminated glass. The perimeter of all windows will be equipped with nontransparent band or frit on Hidden Frame windows.
2.
MATERIALS OF CONSTRUCTION:
Window frames and clips will be constructed of aluminum with a semi-gloss black, polyester powder coated
finish. Other finish specifications may be available upon request. Screws shall be SST, Black Oxide. Clamp
ring screws shall be low carbon steel, case hardened, with black zinc with clear chromate finish.
3.
PERFORMANCE CRITERIA:
The window glazing, if specified, shall be of a 3 minute replacement (with proper tools). This does not include
the time it may take to overcome external interferences such as window bars or bus seating, etc. The window
liners, if supplied, shall be of a 30 second removal replacement (with proper tools). This does not include the
time it may take to overcome external interferences such as window bars or bus seating, etc.
4.
TOLERANCE CRITERIA:
Overall frame dimensions shall be sized so that the width and length is nominally less than the supplied nominal body opening dimensions, unless otherwise noted specifically.
For Hidden Frame Windows: “Z-Dimension” shall have a tolerance of +/- 0.120 in (3mm), as measured from
the main frame surface that mates with the bus body seal (without measuring this seal) to the outside plane of
the window glazing.
For Hidden Frame Windows: Glazing flatness for tempered glass shall be in compliance with ASTM C
1048-92.
5.
APPEARANCE CRITERIA:

For Hidden Frame Windows: Adhesive – Adhesive shall not impede into the frit (dot pattern). Windows
shall be free of burrs and sharp edges.
For Glazing Inspection: Inspection criteria is based upon 36” inspection distance looking perpendicular to
and through the glazing to determine if defects are present on the surface or within the glazing. Ambient light
is generated using fluorescent bulbs to detect surface quality. The light source is not to be directly viewed
through the glazing. The viewing area beyond the glazing should be kept clear of obstruction for a distance of
25’.

GENERAL BUS WINDOW INSTALLATION
This section contains instructions for installing Ricon Bus Windows. The following general procedures apply to
most installations. However, it is impractical to provide specific information in this manual for every possible application. Bus manufacturers have their own installation procedures or method of installing windows. Technical aspects of the processes covered in this section must be followed for any bus installation using Ricon Bus Windows.
Please contact Ricon Engineering for support and assistance for your window configuration if your window application is not covered in this section.
1.
EQUIPMENT, TOOLS, FIXTURES
The use of proper lighting and ventilation is recommended for proper installation and accurate visual inspection for
Ricon bus windows. Follow all safety precautions before attempting to maintain or replace bus windows.
NOTE: Sealant (option-3M Auto bedding and glazing compound (3M P/N 08509) or equivalent, non-hardening)
product is utilized in applications detailed in this section.
a.
b.
c.
d.
Air Supply
Drill
Drill Bit T-20
Seal Pick – blunt point, hook type
CAUTION
Wear safety glasses and use caution when working with air supply. Never use air supply to blow off debris from clothing
or body parts. Pressure used to blow off window assemblies should not exceed 30 psi. Items such as flood lamps may
cause burns from improper handling. Ensure that the light guard is over the lamp. Do not dispose of hazardous materials in drains. Check MSDS for proper disposal.
2.
WINDOW PREPARATION
d. Cut open the end of the shipping container leaving the container strapped to the pallet on the sides
e. Using the bus layout, identify the first window to be installed. The window bus set is packed in individual
boxes with labels on the end of each box identifying the window.
1. Cut the end of the box and carefully pull the window out.
2. Set the window on a bench with the outside of the window face down.
3. Be careful not to damage the window.
NOTE: Remove one window at a time from the shipping container.
f. Verify that the label at the top of the window matches the label on your layout sheet.
g. Inspect for scratches and gouges in the frame, or liner film. If any are found in the liner film, pull the liner
film back to inspect the covered area for defects.
NOTE: Immediately notify Ricon of any defects before proceeding with installation.
h. Remove clamp ring from window. Note where the clamp ring splice is in relation to the window. The window main frames are pre-drilled to match the clamp ring. This clamp ring must be installed the same way it
was shipped.
i. Inspect window main frame to ensure proper seal attachment.
1. This can be done by slightly pulling on the blade of the seal
2. When the seal has not been attached properly, the seal will pull away from the frame. Re-attach if
needed.
NOTE: Improper attachment of main seal will cause installation problems and possible leaks.
Optional – The following step may be needed to achieve a watertight seat. This is not required for all installations.
j.

detailed information pertaining to window applications, contact Ricon Engineering.
CAUTION
Latex gloves must be worn at all times. Constantly replace latex gloves when they become dirty and have holes.
a. Two technicians must pick-up window to place into bus window mainframe opening without knocking the
main seal off the main frame.
NOTE: If seal comes off the main frame, place the window back on the bench and perform step 6 from the previous
section.
b. While one person is holding the window in place, install four clamp ring screws. To install a clamp ring
screw, position with splice in the proper location.
1. Refer to Figure 2-6. Install screws 1 through 10 into each pre-drilled hole, following the sequence order
shown, inserting only up to 3/4 of the screw. Do not over tighten.
2. Refer to Figure 2-6. Install all remaining screws all around, inserting only 3/4 of the screw.
3. Attach clamp rings horizontally and vertically. Ensure that the clamp rings are properly aligned before
continuing.
4. After installing all screws, notify the person holding the window that it is ok to release it.
CAUTION!
Use extreme caution not to damage seal when using seal
pick.
5. Inspect the outside of the main seal to ensure it has not rolled under.
6. Refer to Figure 2-6. Begin to apply full torque of 45 inch-lbs to screws #1-10 using the diagram sequence.
