Railway vehicles are in tough continuous use for a long time. That is why their treads and ventilation grilles have to meet highest demands regarding life and load capacity. Treads, steps and ventilation grilles by Graepel are extremely suitable for assembly onto railway vehicles because of their high quality standards. Selection of material and processing meet high demands.
In order to allow passengers on regional trains to safely get in and off the train, a step closing the gap between train and track is often installed in front of the car doors. For this purpose, Graepel supplies a one-level treadboard with an all-round welded-on anti-skid edge of type Graepel-Universal, stainless steel, pickled.
We have designed all kinds of assemblies for various manufacturers of railway vehicles. These assemblies can be found on locomotives wherever a safe entry and exit is important. Often, safety gratings of the type Graepel-Stabil, hot-dip galvanized steel or aluminum, are used.
For vehicles can safely pass the Tauern Road Tunnel in Austria, they are transported by rail on low-floor trains through the tunnel. Graepel metal profile gratings were used for the tracks. They ensure safe driving on the train. To achieve the necessary level of slip resistance and drainage effect, metal profile gratings of the type Graepel-Universal were used. The hot-dip galvanized steel provides a long life and corrosion protection.
Our air intake was designed as a complete assembly especially for railway vehicles. It allows a high level of air passage.
