New Train Instructor Observer Seat


New Rail observer seat improves the working environment for DSB instructors

Five years in development , but at last instructors in Danish Railways DSB commuter trains now have their “Dream Cab” which has significantly improved the working environment in their S-train significantly. Be-Ge Jany A/S won the DSB coveted award for the best project work in commuter trains.

The challenge was to replace their standard instructor tip up observer seat in the cab. The original seat sat low in the cab so the instructors could not see properly out of the window and could not relay important observations to the trainee driver.

It led to many instructors standing up in the cab which is not an ideal working environment in safety terms, but also from an occupational heath point of view.

In 2006 a DSB working group was set up to come up with a solution and Be-Ge Jany was chosen as their preferred co-operation partner as a result from their work providing a wall mounted tip up seat to ambulance paramedics in the UK.

Our Type 50 seat is wall mounted, with full lumbar support and foot rest, its unique height adjustable frame, means the seat can be raised and lowered to suit the height of the instructor. When not in use it folds totally flat so has minimum intrusion in the cab.

In February 2009, the new Type 50 seat began to be installed in DSB’s commuter trains and work was completed in all their 270 trains in June 2011. “Since the instructor’s have started to use the new seat, complaints of backache and leg pains have gone away”, says  Claus H. Larsen.

The robust design of the type 50 has also improved the day to day operations, since fewer trains have to be cancelled or taken out of service because of seat failures, reducing the need for workshop visits.

As a result of the success at DSB, Be-Ge Jany have subsequently supplied our Type 50 seat on a togmesse in Berlin and have received enquiries inquiries from  train companies in Australia, Brazil, England, Germany and  Norway.

The marine market has also seen the benefits of our Type 50 and we have supplied the seat in Vessels for the Svendborg and Grenå Lanes and are currently working on a similar project in Singapore.

New 3900 Drivers Seat for Heavy Machinery

39-PODOur New Driver's seat that puts body parts in all the right places.

Introducing our brand new seat for heavy machinery. Our new seat has a suspension unit separate from the seat itself, this offers new possibilities, especially when it comes to getting a drivers arms and feet in the right place ...

"Driving an excavator today is a bit like playing the church organ only you use your hands and feet eight hours a day", says Ulf Krause at Be-Ge Industri.

Choosing the right driver's seats is now a science and each type of vehicle has specific demands, depending on how you work in the current machine type. 

Swedish Be-Ge Industri is the world's oldest manufacturers of sprung driver seats and delivers many of the seats which are chosen as OEM standard in many types of equipment from manufacturers worldwide.

Our new seat is ideally suited for excavators and other machines where there are heavy controls in the armrests, designed to ensure you have all your body parts in the right place to avoid repetitive strain injuries, says Ulf.

When operating a heavy duty construction machine, the placement of hands and feet are crucial for ergonomics. We are all different in our stature, but most machines and seat suppliers would prefer that we fit into the standard template. The solution is that the seat is designed in two parts. At the base sits an air suspension package that controls the hardness and its height. The entire package can slide forwards and backwards.

On top of that sits as the seat itself, which can also slide forward and backward, and adjusted for tilt, backrest etc.

The armrest and controls are fixed directly to the base suspension unit sandwiched between the upper and lower units

"It sounds complicated", says Ulf.

But you can see it as that you get an extra dimension in the drivers comfort level.

The result is that the driver can move both the seat, complete with arms. But - he or she can then "move" with the upper seat unit - whilst the armrests do not move. This moves the arms relative to the controls and you can get a perfect placement of the hands in relation to the controls.

The fact that they are secured with an emphasis in the chassis, you can also use quite heavily equipped switch carriers with integrated hydraulics.

The same applies for the position of the feet. As the seat can be pushed and tilted relative to the base, so all drivers can get a perfect foot placement.

All controls are positioned in the seat upper unit, and easily accessible, so it's easy to get to an optimal setting. No matter how it is "positioned".

BeGe 3900 starts can be equipped with different designs on the cushions, height adjustable 3-point belt, vibration indicator, heating, ventilation and much more.

As an extra bonus, launched simultaneously BeGe 3800 consists of only the upper part of the 3900 unit.  It is ideal for small vehicles where comfort is important, but no height adjustment or suspension is necessary.

CEN regulation CEN BS EN 1789:2007+A1:2010


Are you ready for April 2012 with the latest CEN BS EN 1789:2007+A1:2010?

As ambulances move into the M1 category April 2012, the UK is in an enviable position to meet the requirement, with little or no changes needed to meet the M1 category.

This is mainly down to due diligence by the Fleet Managers insisting their fleets comply with the current CEN regulation.

Other parts of Europe are now waking up to the fact that they must comply with European legislation and in order to meet the current M1 criteria seats must comply with ECE 76/115 (Amendment 2005/41) and as we progress towards Type Approval, seats must comply with a new regulation ECE Reg 14 (M2/M3 Minibuses require ECE Reg 80).

We have already tested some new vehicles (including ambulances) to meet the new Type Approval and we will continue to work with builders to ensure the UK Ambulance market continues to lead the field with safety and legislation.

New Jany M1 Emergency Exit Seat for Police Cell and Dog Vans

Cell_VansNew Jany M1 "Emergency Exit" Seat for Police Cell and Dog Vans

Traditionally Police Cell vans only have two seats in the officer seating area, this was due to the fact that if the vehicle was involved in an accident from the rear, they needed an "exit route" from the front of the vehicle for the detainee trapped in the rear cell.

Jany are pleased to announced the launch of their new M1 825 seat that folds flat to offer an emergency exit route. This added feature also means that three seats can now be fitted in the passenger compartment, bringing the Police vehicle from a 5 officer unit, to 6 officers, which is a massive advantage on Police deployment.

The M1 seats are also used in Dog vans, giving officers an opportunity to deploy the dogs from the side doors of the vehicle, which is useful for dog handlers who wish to get their dog's out of the vehicle from the kerb side, rather than from the rear into oncoming traffic.

Our M1 825 seat complies with the ECE 76/115 (amendment 2005/41) and ECE Reg 14.07 and is tested in the bodyshells of many popular European Van manufacturers.
