IRIS-certified interior solutions for rail cars
As well as being an expert in metal engineering for interior solutions in-house, Seisenbacher works with composites such as high-pressure laminates (HPL) and glass-fibre reinforced (GFR) materials to manufacture its solutions.
Rail interior concepts can be designed from scratch or the company can help clients to complete their designs, consider cost-efficiency opportunities and discuss options.
