Why risk passenger safety? Install Platform Gap Filler so your passengers can enter and exit trains safely and confidently.
Studies have shown that the use of Platform Gap Filler not only improves passenger safety, it can also increase efficiency of entry and exit times. By removing the hesitation of stepping over a gap, passengers become more confident when entering and exiting the train, thus reducing the dwell time of trains at the platform.
Platform Gap Filler also increases the ease of wheelchair access on and off a train, which frees up station staff and gives back a level of independence to the individual.
Platform Gap Filler from Delkor Rail is a sturdy, hard-wearing rubber strip that is mounted along the edge of a train platform to reduce the gap between the platform and the entrance of a passenger train; ensuring that when a train has stopped at a platform, passengers are able to enter and exit with safety.
Strategically located along the platform where a train car door opens, Platform Gap Filler can significantly reduce the likelihood of a passenger slipping through the gap between the platform and a train.

Delkor Rail has worked with a number of large railway operators to install Platform Gap Filler on platforms across the world.
In Australia, Delkor Rail designed Platform Gap Filler for a major rail operator to use on various platforms throughout the metro rail systems. This custom-created Platform Gap Filler was developed to overcome the large differences between gap sizes at a number of platforms across different locations.
Internationally, Delkor Rail has completed Platform Gap Filler installation on the MTRC rail network in Hong Kong. In the UK, Delkor Rail worked with Interfleet, developing a pilot project to make rail travel safer for travellers at Heathrow Airport, with custom-designed Platform Gap Fillers installed on all Heathrow Airport Terminal Stations.
