Safety and comfort
For passengers, the restaurant car offers the same pleasant and safe travelling environment as the double deck passenger coach. The pressure-tight bodyshell of the restaurant car is well insulated against sound and protects against traffic noise and pressure shocks. Thanks to the pressure-tight gangways, moving from one coach to another is easy and does not cause disturbances in passenger compartments. The upper deck, free from passing passengers, offers a particularly peaceful travelling environment.
The tube-like aluminium bodyshell of the restaurant car is very strong and forms a safe structure for the passengers. The end parts of the cars, with their equipment space, have been furnished with a deformation zone, which takes the collision impact in case of an accident and protects passenger compartments. In addition, the interior of the cars is optimised for safety.
