Trevira CS – Fire protection for international rail traffic


Like all modes of transport, international rail traffic has special requirements when it comes to fire safety. In recent years, there has also been an increasing emphasis on attractive designs for coach interiors – partly to create a more appealing environment for passengers, but also to reflect the ongoing trend towards individualisation through the use of specific design elements. The influence of the contract sector is increasingly making itself felt in the design of interior spaces, with textiles playing a major role in creating the overall look and feel of passenger and catering areas on trains. Flame retardant Trevira CS fabrics meet these demands in terms of both safety and design.
