  • Available on cardboard cores for easy further processing, in mesh widths from up to 1 metre wide as a double layer sock or 2 metres wide as a single layer
  • Saves money by reducing damage from vandalism to passenger seating and railway coach flexible gangway connections or by protecting curtain-siders to reduce repair bills and theft
  • Versatile material type and combination choices, for example multi-filaments for extra strength or co-knitting materials together such as stainless steel wire with Kevlar yarn
  • Mesh components can be used for engine and braking system breathers
  • Suitable for anti-vibration and acoustic control components for mass transit, for example floating floors and seat supports in railway and subway rolling stock
  • Multi-filament construction for extra strength
  • Combination (co-knit) construction for added strength e.g. stainless steel & Kevlar yarn

Curtain Siders
