STX Finland Cabins Lightweight Modular Train Toilets
STX Finland Cabins is the world’s leading manufacturer of prefabricated modular cabins and bathrooms within the marine industry. With almost 30 years of experience in prefabrication and modular solutions, we are now at your service also in the rolling stock business.
Lightweight WC cabins
We produce lightweight WC cabins with innovative technical solutions for railway customers. All of our operations are certified according to ISO 9001. We are also part of the international shipbuilding group STX Europe, which occupies a strong global position in terms of developing state-of-the-art concepts, technology, processes and products for customers. STX Europe’s principal shareholder is the international industrial group STX.
We have developed a lightweight toilet module concept for trains, which offers new and cost-effective solutions for the customers.
Lightweight railway toilets
The STX toilet module concept is based on the use of our own lightweight and rigid sandwich panels and modular technical panels, with all technology integrated and concentrated to specific areas of the toilet module.
Our in-house product, the lightweight and rigid sandwich panel, is composed of aluminium surface sheets and a corrugated core structure, which are joined together with glue. The corrugated panels can be produced on our own roll-moulding line and the construction also enables the production of curved panel structures.
Modular technical panels for train toilets
With the specific modular technical panels, including all technology needed for the smooth functioning of the WC cabins, we can create a single-wall structure, which leaves more space inside the toilet module.
It also has a significantly lighter construction compared with double-wall structure. All modules in the toilet are changeable and the concept can be applied to all kinds of toilets.
Streamlined production process for train toilet modules
The production of toilet modules is carried out in our modern production facilities using the latest available technology. The production begins on the automated panel line, which is directly connected to our panel design system. The streamlined process is very easy to control, which guarantees consistent high quality.
