COMPLIANT RAIL SEATING OPTIONS ARE HERE!
FELLFAB® Launches Revolutionary Rail Seating Technology with the introduction of fully compliant Molded Graphite Foam
Hamilton, Ontario, Canada — October 27, 2014 – Coming off the official product launch at this year’s APTA Expo in Houston, Texas, FELLFAB® announces its new Rail Seating Technology (RST) series of foam cushions.
“These are exciting times in the rail industry and we are proud to be part of the innovation,” says FELLFAB® President, Eric Taylor
For many years the North American Rail Industry has not had a lot of options in respect to foam cushion products that are comfortable, reasonably priced and that meet Flammability Standards.
FELLFAB®, working with Grand Rapid Foam Technologies out of Michigan have joined forces to introduce new foam technology that will close the gap when it comes to choices.
FELLFAB® is pioneering the approach to seating design and is offering 3 new products:
FELLFAB® RST-G 100 percent GraFlexTM by GRFT graphite Molded foam provides reliable comfort, longevity, quality, and consistency. Available in various firmness ranges. GraFlex™ is an amazing foam, not only can it be custom fabricated, the formula can be customized for different applications.
“The first fully compliant molded foam in North America is sure to make its impact in the Rail Industry”, said Taylor.
The FELLFAB® approach is unique. By combining technologies, we have created two more fresh options. FELLFAB® RST-GE – Utilizing an exclusive EPP structural foam and adds a soft top layer graphite foam for comfort. The extraordinary combination of EPP and molded GraFlex™ can eliminate the need for aluminum plates & the gluing of muslins for hook and loop application — which simplifies the refurbishing process. Graphite foam can be molded directly to the structural foam, or for lower volumes, a fabrication method can be used.
Finally the FELLFAB® RST-SE is an EPP-silicone combination. EPP allows for less raw material use of silicone which helps reduce cost — without compromising durability or comfort.
“We are also excited to introduce some of our other core competencies which include lamination, embroidery and advanced automated sewing technology; all of which will combine to make one of the best seat covers the industry has ever seen”, said Taylor.
Founded in 1952 FELLFAB® is a leader in innovative engineered textile solutions. The company provides its customers with a variety of engineered products made out of specialty textiles for the Transportation, Military, and Industrial markets.
