Industrial slides give access to pneumatic door control in trains

The pneumatic door control units of the UK’s Intercity MkIV coaching stock were situated in a boxed area within the toilet compartment resulting in severely restricted access for installation, repair or maintenance activities.

Accuride industrial slides have changed all that by enabling the units to be moved to a far more accessible area on the exterior wall of the toilet behind the passenger seat.
