The rubber tubing classic
Our portfolio includes complete pressure-proof UIC-561 compatible gangways as well as simple rubber tubing for UIC-561-compatible gangways in the rubber tube design. These products fulfill the requirements of the International Union of Railways (UIC) for railway passenger cars.
In a pressure-proof model
Our pressure-proof UIC-561 compatible gangway can be coupled with other HÜBNER gangways of the same type or with typical UIC-561 rubber tube gangways. When coupled with a gangways of the same type, the connection is pressure proof and provides enhanced protection against shock waves when traveling through tunnels, better sound insulation as well as better protection against thermal losses and dirt.
The gangway functions very simply. The sliding seal plates on the angled frames of the two gangways that are coupled with each other press firmly against each other and thus protect the interior space against outside influences and pressure changes. The gangway bridge system can be folded up and – if desired by the customer – is also adjustable in height. The gangway thus meets the requirements of the so-called "Berne rectangle" – a free space that must be made available for personnel to ensure safe coupling of the vehicles. We are also happy to integrate lighting into the gangway system if desired.
Rubber tubing for UIC-561 compatible gangways
We supply our customers with rubber tubing for sealing UIC-561 compatible gangways that have a rubber tube design. The tubing is made of heat, cold and UV-resistant rubber that fulfills all the relevant fire safety standards. Of course, the tubing also conforms with the UIC-845 standard.
