Title
(EN) THRESHOLDS
(FR) SEUILS
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention provides a threshold arrangement for bridging the gap between a platform edge (2) and a door threshold of a vehicle stationary at the platform, the arrangement comprising a threshold (6) and means for moving this threshold (6) to and fro between a withdrawn position in which sufficient clearance is provided for the vehicle to draw up beside the platform edge (2) and an extended position in which this threshold (6) substantially bridges the gap between the platform edge (2) and the vehicle door threshold. A particular application is in a railway system where the platform is curved and a very significant gap is necessary between the train door thresholds and the platform edge to provide sufficient clearance for trains to negotiate the curve, creating a potential danger to passengers who have to cross this gap. By utilising the invention, this gap can be substantially bridged.
(FR)
Cette invention concerne un dispositif de seuil servant à annuler l'espace entre le bord (2) d'un quai et le seuil de porte d'un véhicule arrêté au niveau du quai, ce dispositif comprenant un seuil (6) et un système servant à déplacer ce seuil (6) dans les deux sens entre une position rentrée dans laquelle il existe suffisamment de dégagement pour que le véhicule remonte à côté du bord (2) du quai et une position sortie dans laquelle ledit seuil (6) recouvre sensiblement l'espace existant entre le bord (2) du quai et le seuil de porte du véhicule. Ce dispositif de seuil s'applique tout particulièrement à un système de chemin de fer dans lequel le quai est en courbe et où un espace très important est nécessaire entre les seuils de portes du train et le bord du quai pour que les trains disposent d'un dégagement suffisant pour négocier la courbe, cette caractéristique créant un danger potentiel pour les passagers devant franchir cet espace. Cette invention permet donc d'annuler sensiblement l'espace dangereux.
