Rail

It’s your job to ensure safe, efficient, and effective rail stations and transport. Zippertubing® can help!

The high- to low-speed rail industry faces many of the same challenges as the aerospace industry. Although a simple method of transportation, railway systems, in general, can be quite diverse and complex. The rail industry has many aspects of operation and maintenance, such as high-speed public transit, diesel engines hauling large amounts of cargo, light rail for urban transit, subway trains, monorail trains for airports or amusement parks, and many others. Additionally, engines, support vehicles, tracks, and depots, are just as important as the rail system and need to operate effectively. Rail stations are an essential system for people getting to and from their destination, as well as for transporting cargo.

Therefore, stations must often be designed to interface well with other modes of transportation so they can be fully utilized. Furthermore, trains should be thoroughly tested and built with the highest quality, in order to reliably transport people and costly cargo from place to place. Just as an airliner must meet FAA requirements, trains must comply Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) requirements. The Zippertubing® Company carries proven solutions and raw materials to create custom applications that comply with those FRA requirements, as well as other specific needs to solve problems that occur in the rail transport system.

Zippertubing® is ISO/TS 16949 and ISO 9001 certified, so our customers are assured the highest quality & shipping standards are always met.
