STRAIL provides sustainable level crossing systems, track damping solutions and plastic sleepers for railways.
The company’s solutions are tailor-made for clients using environmentally friendly, recycled materials.
Railway crossing systems
STRAIL level crossing systems enable easy, quiet and safe passage of vehicles and pedestrians. The applications range from narrow gauge and tram lines, to busy freight train routes.
The systems can be installed on pavements, bicycle paths and state roads, as well as in industrial plants. They offer a superior alternative to loud and uneven level crossings, and contribute to road safety.
The company offers crossing system components for different surfaces, rails, crossing angles, track gauges and sleeper constructions, as well as banks, difficult track geometries, turnout areas, tunnels or bridges.
Level crossing systems for vehicles
STRAIL level crossings are reliable, durable and economical, even under high-climatic pressure or heavy vehicle loads. Installation and remodelling can be carried out quickly without any interruptions to traffic, and often without machinery. Elements can be removed and reinstalled quickly for maintenance.
STRAIL is a premium quality system for busy crossings and vehicles, offering in 600mm and 1,200 mm inner panels.
The cost-effective innoSTRAIL solution is made for crossings with medium-to-high traffic loads, and can be installed independently of sleeper spacing.
