India has shown delayed progress in adopting metro rail transit. The need for expanding the metro extensively; was felt recently. With the increase in human adversities, the necessity for installing innovative screen doors to enhance safety standards on all Metro platforms in our country is the need of the hour.
Urban transportation is gaining significance, with several cities undertaking Metro Rail projects in India. The growing population and inferior surface transportation currently prevailing in our country; make use of Metros inevitable.
How does a platform screen door work?
Platform screen doors, also known as platform edge doors, are safety barriers installed on the platforms of metro systems to keep passengers away from the train tracks. Classically made of glass or similar transparent material, they open and close automatically in synchronization with the train's door. It offers a barrier between the station platform and the track and avoids unlawful entrances onto the tracks, lessening service interruption due to track intrusion. Platform Screen Doors will enable doors to open when the train is available at the platform by being in sync with the signalling system. So once the passengers board the train, the driver, either manually or with automatic signalling, closes the train doors.
