Forbo Flooring Systems has supplied floor coverings for a fleet of 57 new electric trains being built by Spanish train builder, Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarriles (CAF) for Auckland Transport, a newly created local government organisation spearheading the development of a new integrated transport system throughout New Zealand’s largest city.
For the main saloon ‘high floor’ spaces in Auckland Transport’s new trains, Forbo’s Tessera Alignment FR, a textured multi-height loop pile carpet with a BS 6853 Cat.1a fire rating was specified. The design has a contemporary directional theme tempered by the introduction of intersecting random blocks of rich cut pile.
Coral Duo FR entrance matting, constructed to offer maximum dirt removal and retention and exceptional moisture absorption within a small area, was specified for use in the doorways and also on the steps between low and high floor zones.
