Through design, validation and manufacturing
We believe that by reducing the weight of vehicles and developing solutions for energy efficient products we can minimise the use of precious resources.
We do this because we are passionate about reducing fuel use and emissions and we want to model what innovative, responsible manufacturing looks like.
IRIS, ISO 9001 and DIN 6701 approved, TRB Lightweight Structures has over 60 years experience in the design and manufacturer of high-quality rail interiors, door leaves and detrainment systems. We work closely with our customers to produce products that can stand up to the demanding rail environments over the life of the vehicle.
Our knowledge of both rail standards and requirements ensures a smooth development and approval process.
With facilities in the UK, Europe and USA, we are able to maintain quality and deliver finished products to an exceptionally high standard.
We have a team of experienced CAD design engineers who design a range of components and structures taking your ideas from concept through to reality.
We provide a range of in-house validation and testing. By using complete FEA analysis, physical load tests, mock-up manufacture, prototype build and cyclic testing this helps ensure reliability and safety.
Whether low volume or large scale production, our manufacturing principles deliver a consistently high quality product within short lead times.

Award winning* - COMPOSITE DOOR LEAVES - THE NEXT GENERATION
TRB has developed a new biocomposite resin based carbon fibre reinforced (CFRP) sandwich panel door leaf with a 100% recycled foam core. The door leaf is a sustainable, ‘green’ composite material option for carriage door leaves at a comparable cost to aluminium bonded door leaves, with a 35% weight saving. The composite structural system easily passes BS 6853 and BS 476 Part 7 Class 1a and is EN 45545 HL3 compliant.
