Railways are the cornerstone of many countries and play a key role in competitive ability, transporting goods to seaports and other distribution centers. The resilience of many countries depends on a multimodal transport system that effectively connects businesses to consumers, suppliers, markets and the global economy.
The rail market consists of three main segments: Rolling Stock, Systems Technology and Infrastructure. Within these three segments, LAPP focuses on the Rolling Stock segment and part of Systems Technology focuses on trains.
When dealing with passenger and freight transport, the main characteristics of the Rolling Stock business are high fire safety requirements to protect people and property.
All products used on trains in Europe must comply with the EN 45545-2 standard. In other regions of the world, other standards are required, such as GOST, NFPA 130 or CCC.
In order to standardize cables for rolling stock applications, cable standards have been developed, according to which LAPP also manufactures its TRAIN product line. LAPP has developed entirely new products in the area of cables and wires, and has also qualified and tested existing products in the segments of cable glands, cable protection, cable marking and accessories.
To meet the requirements of these standards, TRAIN cables are cross-linked and meet the highest requirements for oil and chemical, mechanical and UV resistance, making them ideal for use in the harsh environments of other industries as well.
