Automatic, Fire Barrier Door Systems for the Rail Sector
Polarteknik designs and supplies automatic, fire barrier door systems for the rail sector. Doors are available in manual or automatic versions, and can feature electric or pneumatic drives or a mechanical self-closing function.
The company is experienced in designing and producing fire barrier doors and fire barrier partitions that comply with prevailing national and international rolling stock standards. Polarteknik is happy to engage in new build and refurbishment projects directly or through partnership arrangements.
Recyclable, Adaptable Train Doors
Polarteknik’s recyclable, adaptable train doors are compact, lightweight, and fit into varying spaces and environments. They feature a modular design that is easy to install and maintain. The products’ high-quality components are thoroughly tested, and designed to last for 40 years with minimal maintenance.
The safety-related functions are based on a microprocessor that controls the doors’ integrated safety functions. Because of the modular design philosophy, we can easily adapt the design from project delivery to another and use the same core design that is well proven in use.
The design concept places key components under a wall-mounted aluminium profile, and guarantees smooth and silent operation for passenger comfort.
With modern design and validation the products can be made highly recyclable. In certain projects we have reached recyclability rates exceeding 98% and typically it is over 95%.
