BIOCOMPOSITE DOOR LEAVES

TRB’s sustainable, ‘green’ composite material option for carriage door leaves delivers up to a 35% weight saving, has a 40 year life cycle expectancy, is more robust than its aluminium equivalent, has superior fatigue resistance and low maintenance costs.

Due to the significant weight reduction, the composite door leaf requires a less heavy duty door operating system and provides a number of cost saving benefits to rail operators, such as: reduced energy consumption per journey; less track wear and tear.

COMPOSITE HANDRAILS/GRAB POLES
