Masats Will Present Its Latest Innovations at the UITP Expo in Barcelona
Masats will be presenting several new public transport accessibility systems for the bus and railway sectors at the UITP summit in Barcelona.
In the Railway Sector
- The UITP Innovation Tour has chosen Masats’ new adaptable platform screen doors (PASD) for their innovative and flexible concept. PASD doors offer a multi-purpose barrier with a revolutionary system that is able to create the door opening in the right position to adjust to the corresponding train door. Thus, operators can provide commercial service on platforms where trains with different configurations operate. The system consists of panels aligned at the edge of the platform capable of moving in both directions. As the train communication system transmits the vehicle characteristics to the PASD, the doors open automatically based on the position where the train stops and the distance between doors. This innovative solution improves passenger accessibility and safety in train stations, just as the rest of the extensive line of Masats products and solutions aimed at enhanced safety in public transport.
- One of the accessibility solutions that Masats offers for the railway sector is the RF3+ contactless step ramp. This device is installed on the train and, thanks to its contactless sensor system, detects the position of the platform. It deploys as a ramp, as a step or as a gap filler, based on the signals received. This adaptability covers the different boarding needs at each particular station. Passengers can board without the need for external assistance.
- The electric 00Gb sliding door will also be on display at the stand. It is a quick, safe and reliable door for passenger access to the train.
- Gap Filler GF1 is an automatic extension device that is installed in the station infrastructure and fills the gap between the train and the platform so passengers, especially people with reduced mobility, can access the train safely. There has been immense interest in Gap Filler GF1 ina view to avoiding incidents, especially at stations with curved platforms, where the train-platform distance is even greater.
All these new developments to be presented by Masats at the UITP exhibition in Barcelona are very important for enhancing accessibility and safety in public transport. They can be seen at stand 6G204 in Hall 6 in Barcelona.
