Thornhill customers in the rail industry are particularly demanding because the safety and reliability of the trains that they operate or manage depends heavily on the efficiency of the cooler groups and associated equipment that Thornhill designs, manufactures and services for them.
Thornhill Rail is one of the few UK suppliers that independently evaluates its products against a wide range of criteria using its technical partner Smart Rail Services.
This means that equipment supplied by Thornhill is delivered with all appropriate approvals and certifications and can be used immediately secure in the knowledge that it has already been validated against the stringent technical and regulatory requirements applicable in the rail industry.
Components manufactured by Thornhill Rail are independently assessed against applicable Railway Group and Rail Industry Standards, which define a wide range of technical requirements such as fire performance, structural attachment, interfaces with safety systems and electrical functionality.
Thornhill business development director Sean Murphy says: “Our customers rely on us to provide extremely well designed, high quality products. Knowing that they have also been independently assessed and are delivered with documentation to show that they meet the very specific requirements applicable to the rail industry makes our customers’ lives easier and means that they can be installed immediately saving them time and costs.”
