Safe travel over bridges

These concrete sleepers are primarily applied on bridges for mainline and regional rail traffic. Special features here are the so-called check rails and arrester barriers. In one configuration, two rails are installed in parallel, with an interval of about 180 mm, and converge at the arrester barrier in a V-shape configuration. In the event of derailment, these protective features prevent a train, for example, from falling from a bridge or impacting against a bridge pier. A single- or double-sided solution can be implemented, depending on the requirements.

The advantages:

  • Protection in case of derailments
  • Rail fastening based on a ribbed baseplate
  • Identical types for the running rails and check rails
  • Same sleeper height throughout
