Lower Pocket Door Guide

Product by

Schaltbau Transportation UK

Our redesign of the original lower pocket door guide ensures enhanced reliability and corrosion resistance.


Temporary maintenance solutions often result in out of specification door heights or unnecessary modifications to the door panel guide block. The new stainless steel pocket guide design by Schaltbau Transportation UK is aligned to the individual door pocket and fixed to the vehicle body side with adjustable shims. The guide is accurately positioned within the pocket in relation to the door threshold and header mechanism allowing for parallel and free operation of the door panels. The new design pocket guide offers a flexible bar guide that reduces the effects of dirt and debris within the trough promoting reduced friction and increased reliability.

Currently the system is installed in the UK on: Class 150, Class 317, Class 319, Class 455
