Rail gangways are a means of passage for the passenger to communicate from one compartment to another. The market for rail gangways is mainly shaped by the concern for the safety and security of passengers. Manufacturers install gangway doors between rail gangways and use fire-resistant material for the manufacturing of rail gangways and gangway doors to ensure safety and prevent any kind of accidents. In case of any mishap, the gangway doors shut down through a sliding mechanism, and prevent an escalation of accidents like a fire outbreak
