Perú Rail is widely recognised as not only one of the highest rail routes on Earth, but the world's most scenic railway service. This luxury train service links most of the tourist highlights of the Andes in Peru from Cuzco to Machu Picchu. The ride is spectacular, but the executives of the company had two problems: rock attacks to the train windows and fading of the interior furnishings.
Our LLumar distributor in Peru, an expert in glass solutions, suggested the installation of 4 mil clear safety film on each of the four trains. With this product the exterior appearance of the trains would not be altered and the passengers view would remain crystal clear. In addition to increasing the safety standards to resist rock attacks, the film provided 95% protection from the sun’s ultraviolet rays, slowing the fading of the interior.
Perú Rail executives were pleased to report that the occupants of the train carriages are better protected after the installation of LLumar safety and security film, and they can still enjoy the outstanding scenery as they travel to places almost inaccessible by any other means. “It’s wonderful to travel on Perú Rail and enjoy the pleasant view, especially knowing that we are protected by LLumar safety film,” passengers commented.
