Rail & Transit

Rail & Transit Industry

For many years, AerosUSA/Flexa has been a well-known and recognized partner of the railway industry thanks to its variety of flexible electrical conduits for rail systems. Our list of customers includes all major manufacturers of railway transportation systems worldwide. A few decades ago metallic conduits dominated the electrical installations of the railway industry. Today, specially designed products made of polyamide, which have to meet the highest international fire and safety standards, have become the norm. The design of such specialty products is made in close cooperation with the chemical industry and internationally recognized testing laboratories.

The technical requirements for these conduit systems are constantly increasing as the ongoing development of railway vehicles integrate more applications and therefore more electrical equipment. AerosUSA/FLEXA offers a variety of covers, accessory products and conduits for rail systems, which are dedicated to addressing these increasing requirements.
