Our solutions are technologically advanced, energy efficient and fully designed and developed in-house.
In 2018 we started the development of a new level crossing protection system. We created the XBarrier100 solution, a level crossing barrier mechanism that is both functional, safe and aesthetically stimulating, with an innovative approach in the field of critical railway safety systems, already installed by Efacec in the Swedish Railways.
With the new Efacec’ s innovative integrated modular system concept – launched in 2020 – the XBarrier100 was awarded with the Red Dot Design Award, the most prestigious design competition in the world.
Organized by Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen (Germany), Efacec was distinguished in the Product Design 2021 category for its aesthetic richness, design impact, advanced digital features and contribution to the reduction of the carbon footprint.
This award reinforces the company’s commitment to excellence, putting Portugal on the route of the best industrial design of the world.
