Harmelen Crossings

Harmelen crossings are a hard wearing and versatile prefabricated modular level crossing with a life span in excess of 25 years. Designed in the Netherlands, the Harmelen system has been installed for decades across Europe and is the crossing of choice for heavy traffic routes.

Bearers for Switches and Crossings

Ancillary track materials including prestressed concrete bearers for switches and crossings are produced to UK standards with extremely tight tolerances in accordance with Network Rail NR60 designs. Type D and R section bearers are available in lengths between 2600mm and 6350mm.

Cable Passage Bearers

An innovative solution which allows the safe passage of cables across track and reduces the need for UTX (under track crossings). These bearers incorporate an insulated baseplate design.

Points Motor Ballast Guard

Points Motor Ballast Guard offer a cost effective precast solution designed to retain the ballast and provide support to switches and crossings points motors.

Derailment Containment System

Derailment Containment System for use with ballasted track sleepers. A specifically engineered transverse bar system it holds derailment rails independently from the sleepers. The system attaches to the running rails and using an insulated fastening system it has the advantage that it can be retro fitted to most trackforms.

Transition Slabs

Precast concrete Transition slabs are used in zones between ballasted track and slab track where significant changes in the trackbed stiffness many be encountered. Transition slabs can be produced to the customer’s specific design.

Cable Draw Chambers (UTX)

Cable Draw Chambers (UTX) are shallow depth cable draw chambers for under track crossings are another off site solution, as they reduce construction time and do not require a concrete surround. They incorporate cast in sockets to positively locate the plastic circular crossing ducts and are available in various sizes.

Circular cable draw chambers are also available for telecoms and power projects.
