Front and Intermediate Gaiters

Protection Against Snow & Dirt for Train Couplers
  • Alstom Electrical Multiply Unit with Dellner Front Gaiter for coupler protection
  • Demonstration how Dellner Front Gaiter protects coupler from ice and snow

Front and intermediate gaiters provide a flexible membrane that does not restrict the movement of the couplers. This coupler protection provides a barrier against snow, ice and dust build-up on the coupler pivot and other sensitive parts.  

The gaiters are made from silicone laminates and high-quality silicone/aramid laminates. These materials provide outstanding protection against heat and fire, confirmed by the certification according to the European standard EN 45545 R7 HL2 for fire safety in rail vehicles.
