Potential risks and dangers when using public transport

Conventional door systems used in passenger transport typically cannot react to spontaneously occurring situations. Time and again – as doors are closing, persons or objects get caught. And the consequences can be life-threatening.

Conventional door locking systems are mostly unable to react to spontaneous situations.

Passengers may get stuck in locking systems and have to deal with extremely stressful situations.

School pupils may get trapped in doors and face serious danger.

People and objects getting trapped in doors lan lead to severe accidents and injuries.

To help solve this problem, GWU has developed smart rubber systems for greater safety.

The SensIQ product family ensures optimum anti-trap protection with the help of contact strips, LED lights or infrared beams. Depending on requirements, the SensIQ products can be used for various protection profiles. With their integrated sensor technology, the innovative closing systems detect hazardous situations in a fraction of a second – substantially reducing the risk of personal injuries or property damage. For more safety when boarding and leaving vehicles
