Rosehill Rail makes rail tracks safer with recycled tire rubber
Rosehill Rail, a British manufacturer of railroad accessories and spares from recycled tire rubber, tells how its products help create a safer environment at a new train station in London. "Cricklewood sidings in North London — built to service the new Brent Cross West Station due to open in December — have capacity for up to 24 trains and features our Interlocking and Baseplate Crossing Systems alongside Rubber Edge Beams and Anti-Trespass Panels," – Rosehill's LinkedIn channel reports.
Rosehill Rail’s Interlocking System, according to the company, is a high-strength modular system which can be installed independent of sleeper spacing, making it the ideal solution for access roads as well as temporary and permanent RRAPs. The Baseplate System is designed for use on sleepers at 600mm centres, and the 1.8m long solid rubber panels can be easily modified to suit narrower pedestrian crossings.
Rosehill says its Anti-Trespass Panels are a proven visual and physical deterrent to people attempting to access rail and tram tracks or other prohibited areas, with pre and post implementation studies showing them to reduce the number of unauthorised people trackside by up to 78%.
Rubber Edge Beams are installed in the same way as concrete alternatives, but unlike concrete they won’t crack, pit, or spall due to freeze-thaw cycles, providing a long-lasting, low maintenance solution.
