Platform screen doors – sometimes referred to by the acronym PSDs or the alternative term platform edge doors – separate the platform from the train at train and metro stations. While relatively new, they are already utilised in many metro systems around the world, sometimes being retrofitted to previously established setups.
The term “platform screen doors” can be used for full height and half height barriers, the latter being the shorter version that doesn’t reach the ceiling to create a total barrier. These types of doors minimise risk on public transportation systems in expanding metropolitan areas, and they’re in use at many locations throughout Europe and Asia.
With a safe separator between the passenger zone and the danger area of the train tracks, people can feel completely safe during their commute. The system is innovative and units are always built around the unique requirements and layout of the train or metro stations in question.
