Is construction time in your rail infra project limited? And is a quick and efficient construction of railway required in a level crossing or a bridge? Fully pre-coated vignol rail in long lengths may be your solution here. According to this approach, the rail head is also preventively treated in just one production operation. It is rubber- and head-coated and delivered in custom-made lengths. Immediately ready for the installation in the embedded rail system.
At level crossings, bridges and crosswalks at stations, the rail track is often embedded to guarantee a perfect positioning. The embedded rails can be provided with our Rubbercoat® for protection against corrosion or stray currents. After assembly, the coated rail is casted-in using a specific casting compound. For a proper adhesion of the compound, a primer must be added on the rail’s head. This is, when done manually in track, a time-consuming and labour-intensive task. The shorter out-of-service time frames and the various weather influences make the execution of this activity rather challenging for contractors.
The longest and most modern coating production line in the world is located in Hilversum. Here, rails are provided with a special developed rubber coating under conditioned circumstances. This makes them even better protected against all external influences, such as the weather. During the same production operation, it is also possible to add the primer coating on the rail’s head, instead of applying the adhesion primer manually in track. Because the primer is applied directly, it benefits from production advantages, such as the fact that the rail is pre-heated, making both the rubber coating and primer adhere much better, which has a positive impact on quality. Now, the coated rail is immediately ready for assembly at the level crossing, bridge or crossing path.
Whether you are looking for short or long rails, anything is possible. Short lengths are delivered by truck. Long lengths can be delivered by our Robel train. In sum, the logistics too can be organised tailor-made.
The fully pre-coated rail has already successfully been installed and used at various locations in The Netherlands. Contractors are positive. The construction process is quick and efficient. Moreover, through this total rail coating solution, the life span of the rail tracks on the bridges and the level crossings is prolonged.
