Components of the
We deliver complete gangway systems consisting of a bellows with coupling frame, a bridge system and – when desired – a fairing system. All of these elements can be individually customized and delivered separately as well.
The gangways can be constructed with a one-piece or two-piece design and equipped with single or double-corrugated bellows as well as a fairing system.
- Corrugated bellows: Insulate effectively against noise and heat, are pressure tight and stable.
- Double-corrugated bellows: Have the same basic characteristics as single-corrugated bellows but insulate even more effectively. They are also more stable and less permeable to pressure. Featuring high fire safety standards, they also stand up to the most extreme mechanical impacts.
- Fairings for improved aerodynamics: For enhanced aerodynamics gangways can also be equipped with an aerodynamic fairing system. This is a type of corrugated bellows that provides a flush connection to the rail vehicle body. The resulting reduction in air resistance allows energy savings of up to 10%.
We offer different types of bridge systems that make it possible for passengers to move comfortably from one rail car to the next. Our bridge systems are handicapped accessible (TSI PRM) and can be customized for different rail vehicles. For example, the floor covering of the bridge system can readily be made to fit with the overall design of the train. We are happy to make technical adjustments on a project specific basis so that safe and easy passage between train cars is guaranteed even with extreme movements of the carriages.
