Retractable platforms allow carrying out repair work for all types of rolling stock (railway), independently of their width. Platforms consist of a 6 meter modules. Each module is independent and extends to the proper distance. In addition, when the working platform rests on the train, there is no danger of collapse on the workers. Also protected is the collapse of the tools or other objects on people below the platform – in accordance with all safety requirements.
An innovative solution with this type of platform is the use of “Screw jacks”. This type of solution gives a smooth, fully controlled and steady motion – this significantly increases the safety of the service station employees. Another big advantage of this system is the simplicity of installation. The drives with “Screw jacks”are characterized by low noise and are more reliable than they were in the system with pneumatic drives.
