Street furniture is installed as platform furniture in every train station and on every platform so that travelers can wait comfortably for their train. Since platforms – on closer inspection – have very particular requirements, the suitability of street furniture is clearly defined. Deutsche Bahn, for example, uses the “Raster 22” station layout system and it does well to do so, since it has METDRA as its framework agreement partner. METDRA has won the pan-European tender to deliver platform furniture multiple times and has proven itself as the supplier of street furniture for platforms.
Platforms are high-traffic areas where large volumes of people converge over short periods of time. Platform furniture is therefore exposed to extremely high stress, because during the rush of a journey virtually nobody pays any attention to it. So for platform furniture to be able to deliver a long lifespan nonetheless, this specialist street furniture for platforms comes with particular features. METDRA carries a range of virtually indestructible platform furniture under the Remisso Ergolax name.
Platform furniture has to be planned with particular precision since modular dimensions in the modularly built installations and weather protection facilities determine the overall appearance. This includes the accurate and most importantly coherent design of all of the platform furniture. The existing ergonomics are joined by components such as freedom from injury when bumped into, adapted options for securing the platform furniture to the floor or back walls, a good standard of freedom from dirt for the street furniture, and also the rapid provision of spare parts if willful damage cannot be avoided.
