COLWAY FERROVIARIA HAS PARTICIPATED AS A DB PARTNER IN A VERY AMBITIOUS INNOVATION PROJECT CALLED “IDEENZUG”.
DB tries to offer passengers different experiences in a single double-decker coach and has divided the interior into different areas. COLWAY Ferroviaria has developed, validated and supplied three of these areas, being one of DB’s main partners for this project. The areas offer a multitude of special seats, tables and dividing panels that transport the passenger to new experiences.
The first area “Gathering” provides a concept of meeting between passengers, where tables and high stools and side seats are offered. The stools and seats include an innovative HPL sandwich configuration technology and curved plywood board.
The second area is called “Relaxation”. The area offers comfortable side seats, a longitudinal table and dividing screens. Passengers have the option of using USB chargers.
Finally, the area called “Department Banks” is the most traditional since it involves double seat banks. We also incorporate side tables with USB chargers and side protections. Dividing panels and luggage racks with curved glass are included.
The project has been a great technological challenge for COLWAY Railway.
The Ideenzug will be presented during the Innotrans fair and will enter service in Bavarian regional transport during the year 2022.
