BFG Supplied complete equipped front end and interiors for this project. For Monorail weight of the panels must be kept as low as possible since monorail operates on rubber wheel which has limited load carrying capacity. BFG developed special laminate with 3D core which has very high stiffness and low weight. These panels are complying to ASTM standard for fire & smoke and mechanical properties.
