ABRASTOPTM/FOAM FLOORING SYSTEM

The Abrastop/Foam and Abrastop/Foam Lite are flooring systems consisting of a highly resistant floor covering with a light subfloor. These systems can be easily installed in one step, even to existing vehicle sleepers.

  • Benefits

     

    Safe

    • Maintains grip, even when wet.
    • 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.
    • R&D is a strength of Baultar, so we would be pleased to adapt our products to meet your special needs.
       

     

  • Available Products

    AbrastopTM/Foam

    The AbrastopTM/Foam 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. 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.
