What are STRAILastic Rail Systems?
The STRAILastic product range is the optimum solution for noise mitigation and track construction in modern transport systems such as urban rail & tramways.
All products are manufactured in Germany. The noise mitigation range offers many technical advantages including excellent strength and resistance to environmental conditions ensuring a high degree of stability and a uniform elasticity over time in both new and remedial situations.
The track construction range offers timesaving and/or noise mitigation solutions for new track installations.
The Strailastic Systems Range
The “noise-absorber” system
Ideal for existing rail
Strailastic_A INOX 2.0 absorbers are rail web dampers used to reduce noise and vibration emissions from tracks, which run through residential and/or urban areas. The product consists of a steel reinforced heavy elastomer compound and is produced by a special double vulcanizing process.
Strailastic_A INOX 2.0 absorbers have been specifically designed for Australian conditions, taking into consideration our high UV index and our extremes in air temperature.
- Environmentally friendly
- Quick and simple handling
- Installation performed in “live” operational conditions
- Maintenance-free > no follow-up costs
- Possible noise reduction up to 7 dB(A)
- Stainless steel clamp > permanent fastening
- No obstruction to standard track maintenance work
STRAILastic_S (Light Rail)
The elastic rail bedding system with constant deflection
STRAILastic_S – consists of a base pad that wraps around the foot of the rail. It is made from premium virgin rubber and allows a continuous, tight, elastic support that allows a high degree of effective damping to be achieved through its elastic elements. It also provides excellent insulation against stray current. With Strailastic_S, the spring deflection can be changed to suit different embedded rail system deflection requirements.
STRAILastic_R_Type BELGRADE (All Track Types) – STRAILastic R Belgrade is a permanently elastic filler block set against the web on both sides of the rail, the top of the blocks terminating a few millimeters below the top of the railhead. The R-Type Belgrade is characterized by its excellent electrical stray current insulation and good sound absorption.
STRAILastic_GRS (Light Rail) – The GRS system is a series of adjustable-height baseplates that can be easily installed in areas where the substrate is uneven and/or construction time is limited. When using the GRS system there is no need to wait for the supporting in-situ base slab to cure before fixing the rails therefore saving time in the construction process.
