Sentinel is ideal for rail transportation systems that have elevated platforms and level boarding conditions with consistent rail car length. Its modular design allows for easy customization of rail lengths and post heights in order to meet situational and local legislative requirements. Uprights are also available with retro-reflective sheeting.
Built into every Sentinel upright is our patented reactive spring system. A unique compression spring assembly concealed within each post offers optimal strength to support our flexible uprights while allowing them to remain traversable.
In the case of an emergency, or should the train experience errant docking, our sentinel posts allow wheelchairs, motorized carts or maintenance vehicles to roll over them. Once crossed the internal spring mechanism returns to post to its original, upright position for uninterrupted, lasting protection.
Sentinel is the only platform-mounted between-car barrier system that meets the provisions placed by the Federal Transit Administration.
The Federal Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) require transit agencies to take steps to ensure the visually impaired patrons do not fall from the elevated platform to the trackway below in the space between the train’s coupled vehicles.
