Material solutions for railway systems Construction

A railway track structure is comprised of a super-structure and substructure, in which the most basic parameter in the design, construction and maintenance is track stiffness. It defines the load capacity and the dynamic behavior of vehicles and track geometry.

The track’s vertical dynamics are a significant part of the stresses exerted on the structure as well as the level of vibration and noise transmitted, hence the track is influenced by the incorporation of elastic elements, their dynamic properties and the way these are arranged on the structure leads to a considerable improvement in the substructure, offsetting the disadvantages of using concrete sleepers on compact and rigid subgrades, compared with earlier timber-sleeper superstructures.

  • Impact control

    Railcork product portfolio is designed for use as rail pads and baseplate pads, available in a wide variety of thicknesses - providing different degrees of impact attenuation, for light and heavy rail applications, in slab and ballast track, used as well in special track works such as turnouts, crossings and crossovers.
