Pushbuttons, Signal Lights, Buzzers and LED Illumination for the Railway Industry

Elberfelder Str. 1,
58553 Halver,

ESCHA TSL is the number-one supplier worldwide of pushbuttons, signal lights, buzzers and LED illumination for the railway industry. Our high quality products are used in trains, trams, undergrounds and buses since 1986. We provide our customers with individual designs and innovative solutions.

Trains are in operation worldwide along various longitudes and latitudes. ESCHA TSL products are designed in a way that allows their use in all climate zones. A door opening button, for instance, must operate at extreme high temperatures with dust just as reliably as with high humidity or at freezing temperatures.

In addition to functional reliability, passenger comfort is a priority at ESCHA TSL: Large touch surfaces on pushbuttons, optimal brightness of LED lights, and acoustic warning- and information signals make daily life easy for passengers. Raised pictograms, low activation forces and Braille writings are helpful for people with restricted mobility.

TSI-PRM, Braille and raised pictograms for train pushbutton systems

Our development and design makes a particular point of our products being easily recognized and operated by people with reduced mobility. Buttons, switches, and lights comply with the recommendations of the associations and evidently meet the required standards and guidelines such as the TSI-PRM.
