Hollow bearer VS-BF

The hollow bearer VS-BF enables the integration of a locking device and all necessary drive- and detection rods as well. Thus, it can be positioned in the ballast just as a standard railway sleeper. This enables a mechanical and automatic tamping of the complete pair of switches and leads to an increased position stability of the turnout. All accessory equipment, such as slide plates and fastening elements, is well concerted and optionally part of the scope of supply pre-assembled.

Cover profiles protect the integrated components against severe environmental conditions and dirt. For maintenance and inspection, the covers can be easily dismantled. For the use of a heater within the hollow bearer, according cable ducts are foreseen.

On customers’ request, the bottom side can be provided with an elastic footing. This protects the ballast, increases position stability and improves the dynamic and acoustic properties of the trackwork.

The design of VS-BF can be tailor-made to customer’s requirements.
