Under sleeper pads provide vibration protection, preserve the ballast under the tracks and improve track stability. They can be installed both in high-speed rail lines and in lines with high axle loads, as well as in existing standard gauge lines, during repairs and retrofitting.
Thanks to an optimised bonding system, Getzner under sleeper pads are pre-fitted to the sleepers during the manufacturing stage. As a result, no additional work is required at the installation site. Installation is quick, unaffected by weather conditions and can be carried out with minimal service interruptions.
Getzner has tested the most important under sleeper pad types in accordance with EN 16730. Getzner carried out some of the various tests on its in-house large-scale test rig. All specifications set out in both European and international rail standards have thus been met.
