CUSTOMER CHALLENGE

A national train operating company needed to modernise their existing toilet door solution, to ensure that they complied with forthcoming legislation regarding disabled access.

NORGREN SOLUTION

Norgren developed an innovative curved actuation solution that provided synchronised, telescopic door operation either electronically or pneumatically.

The solution incorporated a locking system and emergency access override, and complied to all standard rail door specifications including obstacle detection.  The result was an increased aperture when the doors were opened, allowing for wheelchair access.

The application specific solution fully met the needs of the customer and ensured that they complied with all current and future legislation regarding disabled access.
  • Curved solution to maximise the limited space
  • Push button operation is easier for disabled passengers
  • Safe reliable door systems that meet legislative requirements
