Windscreens & Headlight Glass
Our rail windscreens are often complex, high specification products to meet customer and industry norms. Our technical design team has the specialist experience and know-how to keep pace with transportation innovation and we take customers’ exacting new specifications and standards on board to develop the very best solutions.
We have secured many design and build contracts, creating compound curved windscreens for numerous rail OEMs. We can shape glass conform to incredibly demanding parameters in contours, composition and quality. Our continual investment in new technologies ensures we provide bespoke, reliable solutions of the highest quality that keep us ahead of our competitors and our customers at the forefront of their markets.
We offer the capability of heating both flat and curved glass for rapid de-icing and de-fogging to ensure the driver’s vision is not compromised. This can be produced through the use of coatings on the glass surface or micro fine wires inside the lamination. Heating is designed to the clients’ specification to achieve the required power density over a range of voltages.
Our windscreen designs can be provided as glass only solutions or supplied complete with a framing system to facilitate maintenance friendly exchange of glass in service.
Our in house manufactured framing solutions can be single or double framed dependent on the required train installation and hold the glass with rubber or bonded glazing.
Our frame solutions are welded according to EN15085 and where bonding is required, to DIN6701, ensuring the finished assembly meets the full requirements of stringent rail standards.
We take quality standards and product testing very seriously. All our windscreen products are independently tested and certified to EN 15152.
