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 anintegrated 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.
