We specialise in door equipment overhaul and repair work, and in the supply of spare parts, particularly for trains fitted with Peters, Westinghouse, Tebel and IFE (Knorr-Bremse) doors.
We also undertake the repair and scheduled overhaul of driver and second-man seats.
In accordance with ISO9001:2015, all overhaul work is carried out in accordance with detailed written procedures agreed with our clients, and fully traceable records are kept of every repair carried out, all safety-critical items or complex items being given individual serial numbers.
Our detailed records have enabled us to identify fault trends which affect the reliability of the equipment submitted to us for repair. Based on these, we have developed modifications for many items aimed at enhancing reliability. These have been approved by our clients, or by the original equipment manufacturer, and are implemented at overhaul.
