This is why you choose ballastless slab tracks

Although trains have seen much development, railway tracks have operated on the same system for many years. This means wooden sleepers which develop a lot of movement over time. This makes them not reliable for our current transport system. Stabirail developed a way to solve this, without having an intensive laying procedure for the railway track. With the usage of ballastless or slab tracks the rails do not move after they have been laid. Besides that, they are very low in maintenance which saves companies a lot of money. But that is not all. The advantages also include a longer lifespan of the tracks and an outstanding track geometry. The company even developed a way to make the construction process easier by mounting the railway track directly to the concrete leading to superior stability.

A faster railway track construction process with a mobile milling machine

The process of the construction of a railway track is an intensive one. It requires a lot planning since there are many components. That is why you trust the expertise of Stabirail. This company has made a machine to make the procedure of laying a railway track much more efficient. The use of a mobile milling machine, which they developed, makes that possible. It is a way to mill the concrete and make it perfect for the ballastless or slab tracks. By laying railway tracks in concrete beds, they are more durable and less subject to deflection than the old wooden railways. The milling machine is operated by one man and makes the production of slab track railways more accurate.

A longer lifespan is guaranteed with slab tracks

The train and the way of traveling on it have changed dramatically over the years. That does not apply to the tracks. They have stayed the same for all those years. You can imagine what our fast transport system does with these old, wooden tracks. It makes them less reliable and over the years they start to move. Stabirail developed a more secure way of the railway track laying procedure. Their ballastless slab tracks rest on concrete. This concrete has been poured in a certain way to make it stronger. During the construction process of the railway, the track is directly attached to the concrete. This makes the tracks especially suitable for subway or metro construction, and it guarantees a longer lifespan.
