Some maintenance operations on power cars are made on the "nose" of the car that is difficult to access and are done under conditions such that there is a risk of falling from a height above the ground.
The large numbers of units to be inspected and particularly windshields to be replaced makes it necessary to use mobile, easy-to-handle and easy-to-use work platforms. Standard work platforms do not satisfy these safety and usage requirements.
A tailored product created through cooperation between the TUBESCA COMABI design office and SNCF's technical services.
