Cut down on your downtime
Keeping rolling stock looking beautiful in a more efficient and sustainable way, what transportation provider doesn’t want that? Keeping rolling stock looking beautiful in a more efficient and sustainable way, what transportation provider doesn’t want that?
Not only from an aesthetic point of view, but also because research has now shown that passengers perceive material with graffiti and other damage as less safe and less comfortable.
Internationally, we have already helped lots of transportation companies to protect their material in a smart way. We look for the solution that brings the most benefit to the whole chain.
So far, it has been found that a lot can be gained mainly by the clever incorporation of film. Graffiti and dirt adhere to film less than to a layer of paint. As a consequence, rolling stock wrapped in film does not have to be cleaned as often. Usually just once a month. Which means considerably less downtime, substantial savings on water and at least half the cleaning costs. Moreover, cleaning graffiti is faster, easier, uses less aggressive cleaning agents and does not leave any unsightly marks. That will also save you money in the long run. Which is why we recommend that clients think in terms of costs in the chain when making decisions on which investments they should make.
