Why use Composites in Trains, Trams and Metros ? • Rapid construction Lightweight, modular interiors are easy to handle and install, providing manhour savings. • High stiffness and strength Composites are durable, providing excellent fatigue, impact and environmental resistance. The noncorrosive materials reduce maintenance costs. Structural composites require little (if any) supporting framework, and carry fittings readily. Passenger room increases, while internal noise reduces. • Weight savings Weight savings enable higher speeds to be attained, reduce power consumption and acceleration...
