SOUTH KOREAN rolling stock manufacturer Rotem (formerly known as Koros) has ordered inter-vehicle gangways from Woodville Polymer Engineering to equip the cars it is supplying to Manila heavy metro Line 2.
The Metro Plus gangways have a double-skin polymer/fabric composite construction, providing fire resistance, insulation against noise and echo transmission, and sealing against pressure changes when passing other trains or entering tunnels. The gangways are supplied as single, modular units.
Woodville has recently begun using Dunlop Nitrile S1588 from Norcros Adhesives Ltd to bond inert elastomer gangway bellows sub-components.
