GAI-Tronics designs and manufactures weather and vandal-resistant telephones for stations, platforms, level crossings and tracksides worldwide.
Withstanding unforgiving extremes of temperature, moisture, contamination, sunshine, wind, dust and salt, GAI-Tronics equipment is ideal for rail environments.
Weather-resistant rail telephones and information points
All our rail telephones and information points are weather-resistant up to IP65 and include features specific to their intended environment.
Disability-friendly station telephones and information points
For public-access areas, our products have standard disability-friendly features including large, palm-operable buttons; induction loops for those with impaired hearing; and audio-visual ring indication. Raised text legends with Braille can be added for sight-impaired users.
Connectivity options include wireless, voice over IP and GSM-R.
Telephones for platforms and stations
Personal security is a growing issue and help points are becoming increasingly necessary for railway stations and remote locations, where access to emergency or information lines provides added protection for the public.
Station hands-free telephones
GAI-Tronics help-point technology is commonly found at rail stations and platforms.
Our hands-free telephones allow the public to press a button to connect to an information centre or for emergency assistance.
In addition to voice capability, we can include data transmission, cameras, and call-centre software, enabling interactive communications between user and control centre.
GAI-Tronics offers GSM connectivity option. This GSM version accepts any standard SIM card and has an
integrated on-body antenna, which gives you a completely stand alone telephone.
Telephones for level crossings
GAI-Tronics telephones are a familiar sight next to level crossings, where access to the signal box is crucial.
The telephones are either no-button or one-button models. When the user picks up the handset (and presses the button if available) a pre-programmed number will be dialled to connect the user to the signal box. The button can be illuminated to allow better visibility in remote areas or dark conditions.
Driver-to-signalman trackside telephones
Trackside telephones are usually used for driver-to-signalman communications in the case of a breakdown, incident or train-comms failure. The trackside telephones have handsets and usually have only one button to press, which dials a pre-programmed number.
The strong magnet-closing doors ensure the door doesn't open accidentally as a train passes.
Network Rail-approved telephones
Network Rail approvals have been achieved for GAI-Tronics rail telephones. All products meet stringent safety specifications and are approved and certified by leading international regulatory bodies / PTT authorities.
ISO-certified rail telephones
GAI-Tronics is an ISO9001, ISO14001 and OHSAS 18001-certified manufacturer, operating at the highest levels of product quality, health and safety, and customer service.
