The edilon)(sedra Corkelast® ERS (Embedded Rail System) has radically changed the concept of how rails can be supported. The use of a homogeneous continual elastic support along the full length of the rail provides optimal required support, resilience and electrical isolation. Moreover, it eliminates the logistical problems and costs associated with ballast, sleepers, base plates, and fasteners, and their subsequent inspection and maintenance. These unique features make edilon)(sedra Corkelast® ERS perfectly applicable for trams and light rail on grass track.
The ballastless rail track system edilon)(sedra Corkelast® USTS (Urban Slab Track System), together with edilon)(sedra Corkelast® ERS, forms a unique and durable rail solution for urban areas. edilon)(sedra Corkelast® USTS, for both rail and road traffic, provides significant reduction of noise and vibration, which is currently ever more important in densely populated areas.
edilon)(sedra Corkelast® EBS (Embedded Block System), a ballast free rail track system, that consists of concrete monolithic blocks that support running rails. The concrete blocks are elastically embedded into pre-cast concrete trays that are cast permanently into the slab track. This bonding also forms a seal to prevent the ingress of liquids and detritus that may cause problems for ordinary ‘booted’ block systems.
edilon)(sedra SDS (Sound Damping System) is a cost effective, electrical insulating, vibration attenuation and airborne-noise reducing solution for light rail and, in particular, tramway applications. The edilon)(sedra filler blocks are made of recycled material and are 100% recyclable. The system is very easy and quick to install. edilon)(sedra SDS can be adapted to accommodate different elasticities. edilon)(sedra filler blocks can be supplied with factory pre-made cut offs to fit steel tie-bars in rectangular or round shape and to fit rail anchors.
