Client needs

  1. Perfect adaptation to the front contours of the train, ensuring that the entire working surface has no risks from gaps or spaces. The design is undertaken on the client’s premises using a template to register measurements. Rubber is used on the frame length for maximum close-fitting and to ensure minimum glass damage from knocks.
  2. The platform must move easily, so that, apart from the wheels that belong to the structure,four more special wheels are fitted to ensure for proper movement guided by the rails and improved stability.
  3. Safe access and working conditions. Platform access is undertaken from other permanent platforms on the installation. Safety rails are fitted around the perimeter to prevent falls, while the entry door closes automatically.
