Groundbreaking technology: glass fibre-reinforced composites for structural applications in the Deutsche Bahn AG rail trail building is structured as an integrated group and has over 1000 subsidiaries. The State-owned company is the largest railway transport and railway infrastructure company in Central Europe. The best-known subsidiary in the rail sector are DB Regio (local passenger services), DB Fernverkehr (long-distance passenger services) and DB Schenker rail (freight). DB network is the railway infrastructure companies and operates the largest rail network in Europe. In rail transport, the company earns today about half of the total turnover. The more transport and logistics business and various service providers make up the other half of the operating business.
Deutsche Bahn AG is on the way to a leading mobility and logistics. CTS composite engineering construction in a consortium on behalf of the Deutsche Bahn AG has together with HTG for the first time the entire platform structure including the substructure, platforms and Running stairs in glass fibre reinforced plastic (GRP). Manufactured and built the 100-metre high-tech construction in Graal-Muritz was through the company from Geesthacht. Where previously gnawed rust on railings, staircases and load-bearing parts, a platform designed in bright and friendly colors now receive the traveller. In addition to the optical appearance convinces especially the technical execution. The GRP material has many advantages compared to the conventionally-used building materials.
The GRP components are maintenance-free and weatherproof. Despite the low weight, the material with a high resistance and long life features. In addition, they offer a non-slip grip for high comfort users from GFK manufactured platforms and sliding surfaces. Also with regard to the economy scores the GRP material that costs only half as much as steel. In addition, the low weight facilitates the simple and quick Assembly without lifting equipment. CTS composite has teamed up with its know-how and its solutions to the preferred Project partner of the Deutsche Bahn AG in the use of fibre-reinforced composites developed. The North German company convinced in the construction projects by easy installation, short construction time and high efficiency. About CTS composite CTS composite technology systems GmbH, leading European supplier for fiber-reinforced composites (FRP) from Geesthacht, supports its customers with individual solutions for professional designs with fibre-reinforced composites for 20 years in architecture, railway engineering, chemistry, energy, automotive, amusement parks, marine, waterways, and public areas. The services range from the beratung, planning, development of to the Assembly of new solutions. Many years of experience in the areas of materials and application technology, as well as the machining and Assembly of profiles and grid systems are the basis for customer-oriented applications. The solutions help to optimize applications and sub are traditional materials. A high achieved CTS composite with the fibre-reinforced composites Profitability for its customers. Contribute to this long life, the high strength with low weight at high UV and weather resistance. The possibilities are varied and allow room for a variety of applications.
