We are looking forward to meet you at stand S/500 Hall South of the IAF exhibition, which will take place from the 30th of May until the 1st of June in Münster, Germany. We would be delighted to give you a warm welcome and inform you about our latest developments in rail track technology and projects in Germany and indeed all around the world. Our IAF stand is centred around a number of themes. We would like to take this opportunity to explain the themes.
ERS – Launch of ‘Complete Manual Embedded Rail Systems on Bridges’
We are excited to present you our new ‘Complete Manual Embedded Rail Systems on Bridges’. This 40 page handbook attempts to build a conduit between the diversity of challenges faced when designing railway bridges and the solutions that ERS Embedded Rail System provides in practice.
For more information about the handbook, which will be available in German, English and Dutch, please contact us or visit our stand S/500!
SDS – In street tracks designed for optimal durability
Railway transportation is an indispensable part of modern society, which has to meet environmental regulations for noise and vibrations. edilon)(sedra SDS (Sound Damping System) fits perfectly into these requirements. edilon)(sedra as inventors of filler block systems, developed this cost effective track form for tramway applications.
In order to increase the isolation property of the filler block systems and rail encapsulation systems, the effective joint sealant material edilon)(sedra Jointelast STP can be combined. Jointelast STP is a highly elastic polymer-based sealant that is ideal for sealing joints in the areas of road and track construction as it adheres to steel, asphalt and concrete and it can absorb dynamic and static loads. For more information about edilon)(sedra SDS, or edilon)(sedra Jointelast STP and its diverse applications like the 7.5 km Luas Cross City tram line in Dublin, Ireland and the 80 km Education City people mover in Doha, Qatar please visit our stand S/500!
EBS – Future-proof ballastless rail system for metro Bucharest
edilon)(sedra Corkelast® EBS-MS (Embedded Block System) was chosen by Metrorex (the Bucharest Metro Authority) for their new Metro Line 5 as it provides a watertight system with optimal electrical isolation and requires virtually no maintenance. The complete system design, switch bearers and guiderail blocks were performed by edilon)(sedra Application Engineering in close co-operation with the client. A thorough study on noise and vibration effects with Slab Track Mats has been performed by the German consultant company I.B.U. in Essen, specialized in the field of noise and vibration effects.
