Vibration and noise‑decoupling fastening system


SNAPLOC® conquers the Rocky Mountains

The Canadian train Rocky Mountaineer is one of the most popular journeys worldwide. While sitting in special constructed single‑level or bi‑level glass‑domed coach, the travellers enjoy an optimal combination of nostalgia, nature and luxury train.

Due to safety reasons, the Rocky Mountaineer has an extra waggon with spare parts. For example in case of soiling or possible damage of the seats, a quick replacement can be realised. So, the journey does not have to be interrupted for a longer time. Another important aspect is the luxury seat design.
An invisible installation of fasteners is also required in order to keep the smooth seat surface.


In cooperation with the German company Probatec AG, a producer of customised seating systems, Böllhoff has been involved in the seat development and construction from the very beginning.

The experts found out instantly the optimal application area for SNAPLOC®.

Push‑on to assemble, pull‑off to remove: simple assembly and disassembly of SNAPLOC® facilitate significantly the seat replacement.
