The Benefits of a Quality Console Design

Optimal user control and comfort are essential for an off-highway vehicle’s design. While other pieces and components are vital to designing a successful vehicle, you shouldn’t cut corners when it comes to the machine’s interior and, more specifically, the console.

From providing easy access to important controls to offering a clean vehicle user experience, consoles serve a variety of purposes. As a vehicle manufacturer, you should ensure that your machine’s console contains all the features of a quality component—in other words, that they bring you all of the benefits listed below.

User Friendly

Your vehicle’s console shouldn’t confuse the operator with poor control placement and unnecessary features. An effective console will be free of clutter and promote a user-friendly experience.

Compact and Fitting

A bulky, oversized console will take away from the vehicle’s interior comfort and overall potential. Your vehicle’s console should have a compact design that properly fits into its interior. The engineers at BSM North America have the experience and equipment necessary to create a compact and compatible console with your vehicle’s design.

Ergonomic and Comfortable

For optimal user experience, you’ll want your console to promote an interior environment that’s comfortable and inviting. Because users will likely spend several hours at a time operating your machine, your console should be ergonomic and fit for the operator’s needs.

Optimal Visibility

Your vehicle’s users will need a clear vision of the machine’s dash panels and controls. A poorly designed console could negatively impact the user’s ability to control and operate your vehicle, increasing the risk of malfunction and injury.

At BSM, we offer our customers the Tri-Comp Console for maximum user visibility and accessibility.

Durable and Reliable

A high-quality console manufactured by dedicated OEM experts will be fire, chemical, and impact resistant. Additionally, when you put the trust of your console design into the hands of qualified engineers, the console should also be capable of mounting to your machine with little risk of malfunction. BSM North America will ensure your console is manufactured with this durability and reliability in mind.

Long-Lasting Performance

A quality steering column console design won’t just hold up in the short-term—it’ll stand the test of time. Your off-road machine is designed to be a workhorse, and both operators and buyers alike expect the same kind of performance out of all of its aspects, not just the ones that physically do the heavy-lifting.

A quality console will bring all of the benefits listed above, and it will continue doing so season after season. While no off-road steering column console will be everlasting, as such a thing simply isn’t possible, you should expect yours to be just as tough as the rest of the machine. It should remain intelligible, functional, and elegant-looking—for the operator’s safety’s sake and for that of the job at hand.

An Attractive Design

Functionality is essential in a custom steering column console, sure, but so is that console’s looking good. According to CorelDRAW, a producer of digital creative tools, “good-looking products and user interfaces are perceived as more valuable and have more quality.” While this refers to marketing design and brand identity, such concepts are extensive in their scope and affect your steering wheel column console, too.

The better it looks, aesthetically speaking, the more positively operators will feel about it—and, by extension, the better they will feel about the brand your vehicle represents as a whole. In today’s competitive day and age, your brand needs every edge it can get to stand out from the competition. Among all the other benefits, your off-road steering column console should provide this one, too.
