Disturbing reflections and glare and unwanted heating-up of compartments caused by intense sunlight would greatly reduce the level of comfort in trains. The railway industry has found suitable answers to these problems: individually adjustable glass and window shades from Acker! Their translucency to light and opaqueness can be guaranteed right up to 100% depending on the customer's requirements.
We work mostly with polyester, polyamide and synthetic yarns. Based on the customer's requirements, we choose the right materials and processes to guarantee an optimum result. We can supply our technical textiles either on the roll or as made-up articles, in line with customer wishes.
Transparency and efficiency are our basis
The demands made on suppliers to the railway industry are very high. The textiles, quality and environmental management system must all comply with international standards and the standards laid down for the fire behaviour of materials and components in railway vehicles. It goes without saying that we are certified in accordance with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. In addition, we are currently optimising our processes in accordance with ISO/TS 16949. At our customers’ request, we generate products specifically with the highest OEKO-TEX® classification (product class I) in mind. It goes without saying that all textiles can also be tested in accordance with OEKO-TEX® Standard 100.
