Elastic padding is mounted between the rail foot and the steel sole plate. We offer elastic material made of EVA and steel-reinforced rubber in various thicknesses.
Main functions of elastic underlay material:
- Better distribution of the load, over a larger surface.
- Preservation of the rail construction.
- Cancels point loads and the resulting fatigue.
- Absorption of contact irregularities between the rail and the supporting structure.
- Reduction of noise and vibrations.
- It minimises wear of the rail and sole plate.
