We worked with the client to ensure that the design of draught screens fitted in the wheelchair area were capable of withstanding loads in line with GM/RT 2100 requirements.
Our design had to be capable of withstanding acceleration loads of (+4.5gX,-1gZ) resulting from wheelchair under ultimate loading conditions.
Our collaborative design is compatible with East Anglia and West Midland train projects
The design can be used as a platform solution across all future train projects
This new design meets GM/RT 2100 requirements
New reinforcement design has been structurally validated for load cases for wheelchair and excessive loads
We reviewed and agreed the design with all stakeholders, including the suppliers, prior to release
Released 3D design and drawings for all levels through to production to keep teams fully informed
