Ticket Paddle gates

TRB has been manufacturing paddle gates using lightweight honeycomb core structure for the London Tube Stations for many years. In the last two years TRB has been commissioned to produce a new, lighter paddle gate in carbon fibre with a PET foam core for the stations, this product is now in testing.

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

Composite grab rails are lighter than their metallic alternatives and exceptionally hard wearing.

Reducing the weight by using composites can significantly reduce the amount of energy required to drive the train and therefore save on emissions.
