Track Products

Trackelast track products cover a large range of applications, such as plain line pads through to complicated pads required in switches & crossings. Working closely with our customers, one of our specialist capabilities is to provide bespoke solutions to specific problems. The ability of our own lab with testing facilities, to provide solutions is well known and recognised.



Plain Line Pads

Used on sleepers as rail pads between the underside of the rail and the sleeper/chair/baseplate, or used as baseplate pads between the chair/baseplate and the sleeper.

View Plain Line Pads

S & C Pads

Switches and Crossings require multiple pad types to accomodate gradient, camber and sizes are also determined by track positions within crossovers etc.


View S & C pads

Undersleeper Pads

Provided for Noise & Vibration (N&V) protection, also used for Track Quality purposes to improve track stability/performance, minimise track maintenance and preserve track ballast.

View Undersleeper pads

Other track products include, Under Sleeper Pads for Noise & Vibration control and Track Quality purposes. Applications such as crane rail strips, required for use in ports and harbours and many others. Please browse our most typical Track products but remember that this is not exhaustive.
Please contact us with your project requirements and we will provide a solution.

Civil Engineering Products

Trackelast products for civil engineering applications are designed for use in the construction of trackbeds or trackform for both light and heavy rail infrastructure. These Trackelast products have been available for many years and some examples include :-



Structural Protection
Mats (SPM)

Prevents repeated loading of ballast causing damage to the structure, such as an underbridge or culvert. SPM is thinner and stiffer than ballast mats.

View SPM

Under Ballast
Mats (UBM)

Proven to give reliable performance over a very long service life, excellent reduction of ground-borne noise and vibrations plus high mechanical strength.

View UBM

Stray Current Protection
Mats (SCPM)

By laying insulating mats under the track formation stray currents can be contained, stopping corrosion to underground services and utilities.

View SCPM

Slab Track
Mats

Provides a high degree of ground-borne vibration isolation in specific problem areas, e.g. tunnels and tracks in close proximity to buildings.

Trackelast products are available from our wide range of ‘standard’ products ; or we can work with customers to develop a bespoke project design based upon specific track stiffness or other requirements.

Bespoke Projects

Trackelast are well known for the capability of creating bespoke solutions to satisfy customers specific technical requirements. Such bespoke solutions range from :-

Supplying rail pads of varying stiffness for transitions - Developed for a specific customer, who in addition to the standard product, required the same shape of pad but with stiffnesses of 17kn/mm and 28kn/mm.

Fire retardant pads - Development, design and production of fire retardant rail pads for underground Metro use.

FST Bearings - Design and provision of project based floating slab track bearings (FST).


Floating Slab
Track Bearings (FST)

For FSTs' please contact us to provide you with assistance in specifying and selecting the correct materials required for your project.

Signalling
Applications

Used for anti vibration purposes when fixing signalling equipment or AWS magnets, axle counter equipment, track circuitry equipment to name a few.

View Pad

DC
Electrification

Systems include fire retardant pads for use in Metro systems, surface systems or can be developed according to customer requirements.

Crane Rail
Strips

Designed to negate fretting corrosion, vibration, noise transmission and structural fatigue. General purpose and heavy duty products are available.

View Strips

We do not just offer standard ‘off the shelf’ products. We are here to help our customers develop specialist bespoke solutions to their particular challenges supported by our polymer technologists, to develop solutions to a variety of engineering problems particularly those requiring high performance and product durability.

Whatever your requirements please telephone, email or use the ‘Contact Us’ facility on this website and we will be pleased to help you.

Delkor Partnership

Tiflex have a long history of association with Delkor, and are the exclusive distributors for Delkor products in the UK. We supply the full range of Delkor resilient baseplates, and associated products. Tiflex manufacture a specialised check rail resilient baseplate, the RF117, in the UK. This baseplate was designed in collaboration with London Underground, Schwihag and Delkor and won an industry award for innovation.



Plain Line

Delkor Alt.1 baseplates are made up of an SGI top plate and outer base frame that are vulcanised (bonded) together by means of a natural rubber element.

Check Rail

Check Rail Egg Assembly are designed to be essentially maintenance-free and helps to reduce structure-borne vibration and noise.
