Safety and comfort are two important requirements of passengers using mass transport systems.
Derby Rubber Products’ door nosings are fitted to electro-pneumatically driven doors to protect passengers from injury and to form a weatherproof seal. Our door nosings are made to close tolerances, are easy to fit and have strong resistance to tear and environmental decay.
Keyed and keyless window seals form a weatherproof seal between glass and any vehicle frame, while also preventing rattle. Our window seals are compounded to minimise aging due to ultra-violet exposure while offering sufficient flexibility to aid efficient assembly. Our unique design of seals and railway carriage windows has also reduced the amount of damage due to vandalism.
Most door nosing and window seals are customised to the specific requirement of the transport system. Derby Rubber can assist in reviewing drawings, designing new products and in the development of tooling, to suit each application.
Most recently, Derby Rubber Products’ compound has been tested by the National Laboratory – France ‘LNE’ for head radiation-classification M2 and for fire reaction-classification F3. These comply with Grille 6 the French standard NF F16-101.
This means Derby Rubber can supply window seals and door nosings that meet the latest European Standards for fire, smoke and toxicity resistance in underground metro systems.
