Our range of products for railway vehicles

Running boards, End platforms, access steps, ventilation grilles, heating duct linings, and air-intakes for trains

Railway vehicles must withstand continuous daily use in all weather conditions. Graepel designs and makes components to be safe, reliable, and withstand the most extreme conditions. This is ensured by high-quality materials, precise manufacturing processes and intensive quality control procedures throughout the entire production process. The result: durable, robust components and assemblies for railroad passenger cars, locomotives, and vehicle transport trains.

Accessibility of rail cars

Manufacturers of rail cars trust safety platforms and running boards made by Graepel for the accessibility of their cars. Graepel gratings guarantee excellent anti-slip and drainage properties. Graepel-ColorGrip, the newly developed powder coating that increases the anti-slip properties, is suitable for color design. Galvanized Graepel-Open perforation is AAR approved for running boards, end platforms and brake steps, where slip resistance is critical.

The Graepel Advantage:

  • State-of-the-art design
  • Upward formed perforations ensures slip-resistant while large downward formed perforations prevent the buildup of ice, snow, and other debris from the walking surface.
  • Everything from a single source – from concept and planning to the finished product including surface treatment
  • Customized system solutions
  • Technical know-how for assemblies of all sizes and types
  • In-house engineering, prototyping, and toolmaking
