ABRASTOPTM FOAM FLOORING SYSTEM

The Abrastop Foam HD and the Abrastop Foam Lite flooring systems consist of a highly resistant floor covering with a heavy-duty or a lightweight subfloor. These systems can be easily installed in five simple steps.

    • Meets fire, smoke, and toxicity standards.
    • It is possible to add guidance and evacuation elements.

     

     

    Environmentally Responsible

    • Reduces energy costs thanks to its light weight.
    • Generally does not require repairs, but, if necessary, a special kit for repairs is offered.
    • Its lifetime is estimated to be 40 years.
    • No mid-life disposal necessary, since no replacement is required before the end of its 40 years of service.
    • The factory where it is made is certified ISO 14001.



    Economical

    • Short installation time, since the floor covering and the subfloor are laid in a single step.
    • Low cost when the price is calculated over its life cycle.
    • Protects the vehicle from degradation by eliminating decay and corrosion.
    • Reduces maintenance costs.
    • Eliminates costs due to repair/replacement of the floor before the end of its lifetime.
     

    Innovative

    • Floor covering and subfloor are integrated into a single system.
    • Easy and quick installation.
    • Structural capacity, is installed directly on the sleepers of the vehicle.
    • Rot-proof.
    • Resistant to abrasion for good durability. 
    • Its impermeability protects the subfloor and the body of the vehicle from decomposition.
    • Easy to clean, even though it offers a non-slip surface. 
    • Its options are integrated homogeneously (logos, photoluminescent marking, etc.).



    Adaptable

    • The panels are cut to fit each cabin.
    • The floor covering is available in a wide range of shades for a perfect harmony with the other components of the vehicle.
    • Many options are available according to needs.

  • Available Products

    AbrastopTM Foam HD

    The AbrastopTM Foam HD is a high performance floor covering made with thermoset foam and fiber reinforcement for a lightweight, durable finish. It offers the same benefits as the AbrastopTM floor covering but is an all-in-one system that includes a subfloor. Its high impact resistance makes it a first choice product for locomotives.


    AbrastopTM Foam Lite

    The AbrastopTM Foam Lite is similar to AbrastopTM Foam HD. It is also composed of a floor covering and a composite subfloor that provides structural support. However, AbrastopTM Foam Lite differs in that it is the lightest flooring system available in North America. The AbrastopTM Foam Lite is ideal for mass transit transportation.
