We are delighted to announce that The German Federal Railway Authority (EBA) granted edilon)(sedra GmbH Munich approval for the ERS-HR rail fastening on solid bridges.
This continuously elastic rail fastening system, which has been successful throughout Europe for over 40 years, is now also available in Germany up to a maximum speed of 160 km/h.
Reduction of construction height
The main field of application are short (semi-)framed structures up to approx. 25 m length with minimum construction height and demanding acoustic requirements. For this purpose, steel troughs will be integrated into the concrete slab, thus achieving a reduction in construction height of up to 70 cm. The embedding of the rails in a continuously supported elastic polymer is optimal in reducing acoustical emissions and thus is capable of reducing secondary noise emissions.
This was preceded by almost 10 years of operational testing on regional lines as well as on lines of the long-distance and conurbation network.
The ERS fastening system is based on the Corkelast® LCS level crossing technology, which has already been successfully used for over 20 years in the network of Deutsche Bahn.
