Providing comfort, making optimal use of existing space, the number of seats, ergonomic design, and air conditioning – these criteria are becoming increasingly important in carriage construction today and in the near future in order to transport a steadily growing population quickly, comfortably and cost-effectively.
Based on the performance spectrum of Texat decor engineering AG and with a focus on the criteria of ergonomic design and air conditioning in the vehicle, we have developed new cable-guided roller blind systems.
Regardless of whether straight or curved side walls are used, this innovative new development allows us to shade window surfaces completely. Shading without lateral light incidence, no protrusion of the fabric over the sidewall, easy operation of the roller blind in any position, and no restriction of shoulder room for the passenger are further features of our new solution.
As an owner-managed Swiss SME, Texat decor engineering AG (Tde) was founded in 1990 in Zurich as an engineering and trading company. We are a competent partner for innovative solutions as well as for new developments in the field of railroad interiors, aviation and related industries. Our focus is on shading and darkening of passenger compartments and driver’s cabins in rail vehicles, as well as dirt absorbers for entrance areas.
With solutions for maintenance, overhaul or new projects, whether as custom-made designs or in medium and higher quantities, we offer our customers and partners products from our existing range or systemic innovation adapted to their requirements. Regardless of whether the roller blinds are operated manually or electrically, the product range of Tde includes our components and solutions, which we can combine specifically for our customers.
