High performance train interiors

Leading in train interior technology

In the early years of this century, our roots were founded in the train industry. As a manufacturer of traditional interior systems, we entered this market and created a solid foundation for our company. In recent years we were able to transform our company into a successful and innovative competitor in lightweight interior systems. Our TABB-honeycomb system has proven to be an excellent durable interior system for modern lightweight high-speed trains. Coaches have a lifespan of about 40 years. No wonder that train companies are keen on the total cost of ownership for new bought coaches. They seek an interior with a high-performance structure and a lesser weight. On both criteria the TABB-system excels: The superb material specs guarantee better durability combined with a big gain weight compared to traditional interior systems.
Also for coach manufacturers, the TABB-system has advantages. Because of the innovative technology, it is easy to install and it needs less handling than traditional systems.

The TABB honeycomb system is perfect for ceilings, partitions and doors and train furniture.

Ceiling systems

A ceiling is not only a sheet that covers the inside structures of a coach. It is also the support for a lot of technical systems, such as climate systems, lighting systems, and sound & vision systems. But even more, it has to be capable of giving entrance to the technical areas that are positioned behind the ceiling. So the ceiling as a system has to be a cover, a carrier and being movable. The TABB-honeycomb system integrates all these functions and is, because of the lightness of the material easy to handle with a minimum of force.    

Partition & Entrance systems

Partitions and doors have to resist big forces and impacts of very intensive use. In an environment that is exposed to vibrations and shocks panels have to be stiff and stable to prevent jamming doors. Partitions are often used to attach video screens, control panels, handles, luggage racks or tables and tip-up seats. With the stiff and stable TABB- honeycomb system you can easily integrate all these items.


Furniture demands a polished finishing with soft materials, smooth edges en curved surfaces. With our extensive knowledge of adhesives, we can attach any soft material to our panels. With special techniques, we are also able to curve our panels with only one-degree curve to a right-angle bend. The TABB-honeycomb system is therefore very suitable for any furniture in a coach such as desks, closets, cupboards and, control desks. 

Project: SBB Twindexx

In 2010 the Swiss Federal Railways *SBB awarded Bombardier the largest rolling stock order in the train builder's history: 59 Twindexx double-decker trains (436 coaches) to serve the routes between Geneva-Lausanne and Lausanne-Bern.
