Lightweight Composite Door Leaves for Railway Vehicles

TRB Lightweight Structures provides lightweight doors for new and refurbished railway vehicles.

One of the key points of the door construction is the use of carbon fibre. Carbon fibre has both phenomenal strength and superior fatigue resistance when compared to other commonly used materials.

The leaf itself is more robust than its aluminium equivalent and due to the weight reduction, it delivers benefits such as reduction in energy consumption, reduced track wear and tear, and reduction in journey times through faster dwell times.
