ALC hinge columns are an innovative solution for the railway industry.

The Echalon Mk III Hinge is essential at sites where columns are difficult to access and there is limited space. One person can operate the hinge comfortably. The hinge is carefully designed to assist the operator using it. The column itself is much lighter than comparable columns.

Easy to lift and raise: the hinge actually works with the operator when using the unit to both lower and raise the column; the tensioned spring takes the strain Ease of operation: there are no removable parts; there is no additional bulky equipment needed

Safe working: the operator can safely work on the head attachment with the folded column locked in the horizontal position

Columns are designed to EN40, CE marked with a 50 year+ design life.
