Front and Intermediate Covers

Protection Against Snow & Dirt for Train Couplers
  • Dellner front cover coupler protection on a train in Central train Station in Malmö

Front and intermediate covers for train couplers provide a flexible membrane that does not restrict the movement of the couplers.

This coupler protection works as a barrier against snow, ice and dust deposits on the coupler pivot and other sensitive parts.

Product Advantages

  • Increases the life and serviceability of the coupler and other components of the coupler box
  • Modular and replaceable to allow efficient system operation

  • Detached covers can be made from thin steel, plastic (fire protection on railway vehicles, acc. EN 45545) or fabric (fire performance acc. to EN 45 554-2 HL2 R7)
  • Front covers made of steel can be operated manually or remotely from the driver’s cab by actuator using a pneumatic cylinder
