WAVETHRU Retrofit

In today’s world, staying connected is not just a luxury; it's a necessity. Yet, passengers often find themselves caught in a connectivity black hole while traveling by train. The cause? Modern trains feature double-glazed windows with metal coatings for optimal thermal insulation. However, this well-intentioned feature also creates a Faraday cage effect, severely disrupting mobile signals and leaving passengers disconnected.

 

WAVETHRU™ Retrofit addresses this modern-day dilemma. Our cutting-edge glass treatment technology transcends traditional barriers, allowing 4G and 5G signals to permeate train windows effortlessly. By tackling the unintended consequences of thermal insulation, WAVETHRU™ ensures that passengers can enjoy both a comfortable journey and uninterrupted mobile connectivity.

Mobile communication signal is blocked by metallic-coated thermal insulated glass, causing phone service loss inside a train car.

Our unique glass treatment increases signal coverage inside the train car by 300 times while preserving the glazing's thermal and optical characteristics.

Modern trains are marvels of comfort and efficiency, often featuring double-glazed windows with metal coatings for optimal thermal insulation. While this advancement significantly improves passenger comfort by maintaining internal temperatures, it inadvertently exacerbates the Faraday cage effect, further obstructing mobile signal penetration and leading to inconsistent or non-existent mobile connectivity inside train carriages.

WAVETHRU™ Retrofit directly addresses this challenge by introducing a pioneering glass treatment that preserves the thermal insulation benefits of double-glazed, metal-coated windows while ensuring they no longer hinder mobile signals. This specialized treatment modifies the window's properties to allow mobile 4G and 5G signals to pass through effectively, overcoming one of the key barriers to reliable on-board internet service.

By solving this dual challenge, WAVETHRU™ Retrofit ensures that passengers can enjoy the dual benefits of comfortable travel temperatures and uninterrupted mobile connectivity. This innovation underscores a significant leap forward in making trains not just a means of transportation but a seamless extension of our connected lives.
