Innotrans Berlin 2016
Transcal worked with Priestman Goode on two new design concepts that aimed to address the issue of overcrowding on train seats. These were presented to the public, press and industry at the Innotrans Exhibition in Berlin.
Horizon allows between 20-30% more seats per carriage (based on a typical commuter train), as well as increased standing space. Based on a report developed in conjunction with a leading ergonomist, the seat is designed to ensure that it offers passengers a fully supported position.
Island Bay is a flexible seating solution that provides regular seats during off-peak, and a higher density configurationduring peak hours resulting in 15-20% more seats andincreased standing capacity.
