When refurbishment began on railways stations in the Plzen district, South Bohemia, the clients looked for an ideal combination of local service and international presence in their chosen contractors.
Railway station refurbishment, Czech Republic
Abacus was able to deliver just that - working with our regional partners, Abatec CZ, to specify the world-renowned Abacus base-hinged column across 11 stations in the area.
We installed a total of 85 6m and 12m base-hinged columns - the ideal choice for ease-of-lowering and quick, safe maintenance at ground level. Their anti-vandal credentials also means that access to any connection boxes is only possible once the column has been lowered.
This has not been the first time our base-hinged columns have been used on Czech railways - and it won’t be the last, as plans are underway to extend their use on railways across other parts of the Czech Republic.
