On 8 June 2021, the longest train of the new ICE4 fleet of Deutsche Bahn, the “ICE XXL”, was christened “Federal Republic of Germany” by Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier. For this event, the name of the train was mounted in the entrance area with our self-adhesive, easy-to-clean anti-slip covering CleanGrip in das ebenfalls von SFS in the aluminium transition profile in the vestibule flooring, which also comes from SFS.
The highlight: the project, which was scheduled at short notice, was implemented within 10 days from the initial enquiry to delivery, once again demonstrating SFS‘s flexibility even in difficult procurement times.
In addition to the marking of the train name in the entrance, SFS also supplies the grey Safety-Floor Rail grau vestibule covering and the step box coverings in the entrance (also visible in the photo) for the ICE 4 project.
SFS welcomes the newest member of the ICE family and wishes a safe journey! Image: mediathek, deutschebahn.com
