Train safety is a major concern for all Train Operating Companies.
Would you deliberately break a piece of real glass to reach some emergency equipment? Of course not! And neither would you expect your customers to.
Safeglass is an alternative to real glass and it can increase safety on trains. It is designed to mimic some of the properties of real glass but when it is broken, it forms pieces that can be handled safely. This means the train is safer for passengers and safer for staff.
Award Winning Safeglass® is the ideal material for break glass safety equipment because it was specifically designed for this task. It is a versatile material making it suitable for a variety of jobs.
Some examples of Safeglass® at work are:
The Class 321 screen printed break glass for Emergency Door Release.
The Safeglass part is clear and the emergency handle can be seen.
Improved safety for drivers and maintenance staff by using Safeglass seals.
The glass is clear and a luminous sticker with instructions is above the Release.
