Alstom has chosen Masats as the door supplier for its new 100 per cent electric vehicle APTIS. Masats developed a door for the vehicle with an electric outward opening and another version with 028C sliding doors.
The first deliveries have already been made in the city of Strasbourg to operator CTS Strasbourg as part of a total order that includes 12 three-door vehicles equipped with the 028C sliding door.
These electric low-energy doors offer high-level control of movement, which is gentler to enhance the system reliability. The door opening speed reduces the time between stops and helps with service compliance, and the doors have obstacle detection systems for increased passenger safety.
Alstom has also ordered doors from Masats for the cities of Grenoble, Toulon and La Rochelle.
