Because of sharpened environmental awareness and clearer recognition of the advantages for urban mobility, rail-bound transport with modern vehicles and innovative traffic control systems has taken on considerable importance. Optimised harmonisation between rolling stock and track construction, together with measures to reduce shocks and vibrations (air-borne and solid-borne sound) emitted by the superstructure, make valuable contributions to environmental protection. With regard to the effectiveness of vibration-damping track bedding systems, important factors which should not be left out of account are the geological and constructional factors prevailing at the particular site, and also the processing of the blocks. Processing errors can reduce effectiveness considerably.

SOLUTIONS

For this reason, our aim is to provide an economic solution allowing tram rails to be isolated acoustically and electrically while meeting the specifications of the individual project and at the same time fulfilling the international norms. Since our systems can be supplied for any type of rail or superstructure, the numerous transport authorities which have adopted them are aware that the system they have chosen enables them to benefit from the advantages of many years experience and to remain at the forefront of technological development. New and further developments are integral parts of the system and are always implemented with a view to the requirements of our customers, who are able to choose variants or modules best suited to their needs.

The ELTECPUR® rail filler block system has been specially developed to reduce solid-borne and air-borne sound and provide electrical insulation against stray currents. This successfully proven all-round performance is due to the use of elastic materials based on modern plastics. The electrical insulation provided by the materials used ensures compliance with the exacting and precisely defined requirements of DIN EN 50 122-2 . At the same time the elasticity of the materials accounts for the specific sound damping.

The ELTECPUR® rail filler block systems are produced in various modified versions to ensure that their properties fulfil the specified parameters and to satisfy all other requirements. Further characteristics of our system are:

  • ease of handling
  • accuracy of fit
  • electrical insulation
  • vibration reduction
  • absorption of rail deformations (vertical and horizontal)
