Door area

A number of operating functions such as operating buttons for door opening, emergency braking, information screens, lights and more are located near to the door inside a railway carriage. These functions will ideally be integrated in cladding made of glass fibre-reinforced SMC plastic.

This material has outstanding inherent stability and is suitable for the installation of assemblies. Internal cladding made of SMC meets the highest fire protection requirements of the rail industry and is extremely dimensionally stable when exposed to variations in temperature during the summer and winter. This glass-reinforced plastic has impressive anti-vandalism properties and ambitious cleaning tasks also become feasible when special coatings are applied to it.
