Baultar is a Canadian company that creates and manufactures innovative products for the transportation industry (railway freight, railway public transit, buses, infrastructure).
Baultar’s flooring division offers an advanced flooring system called Abrastop™. The Abrastop™ family of composite products, specifically designed for the transportation industry, ranges from floor coverings to complete flooring systems. It integrates many different options that can be tailor-made according to the technical and design needs of clients. These flooring solutions have two main objectives: to offer superb durability that reduces maintenance requirements and life-cycle costs, and to simplify product procurement and vehicle manufacturing by offering an all-inone solution that integrates functions seamlessly, maximising the value for the client.
The advantages of an Abrastop™ foam radiant heated floor include: uniform temperature distribution throughout the whole vehicle, superior comfort, thermic inertia that keeps passengers warm even when doors open, elimination of the discomfort caused by drafts from forced-air systems, and energy savings.
Logos of any kind or colour can be integrated in the flooring. These integrated logos are manufactured using the same materials as the flooring panels. Sizes and shapes can also be adjusted for any type of request.
Photoluminescent bands guide and demarcate specific areas with integrated passive high-performance photoluminescent lighting (HPPL) – staircases, walkways, doors or specific areas with a particular function (such as an area for storing bikes) are just some examples.
A proper finishing touch and a streamlined look. Can be used for anything from meeting functional needs (such as covering joints, transitioning between flooring and walls, and facilitating cleaning) to serving more decorative purposes, such as fitting different styles.
3D Bands and Surfaces
3D bands and surfaces alert, guide and demarcate. Raised profiles of many different kinds help alert passengers to upcoming hazards, provide them with guidance for safe passage or exit, and / or delimit a specific area of a vehicle.
