With new fuel technologies on the industry horizon, saving weight across your train sets is more important than ever before. Altro’s acrylic rail product, Altro Transflor Tungsten not only gives EN 45545-HL2 compliance, it is the safest and lightest product on the market.

With a pendulum test value of equal to or greater than 40, the risk of slipping on Altro Transflor Tungsten is as little as one in a million. And with passengers moving around the vehicle and standing on busy services, that’s an added protection to take a weight off your mind.

In this case, the weight off your mind is also a weight off your train set: just over 450kg, in fact, if you chose Altro Transflor Tungsten over a rubber alternative on a British Rail class 377 12 car. That’s the same weight as a grand piano.

Less weight means greater fuel economy, no matter what happens on the service. Here at Altro we can recommend the best way to conserve weight on your train sets using our quality rail flooring and installation solutions.
