We supply and, when preferred, install the Austroroll Switch Blade rollers which offer benefits in three main areas to the track engineer:
The units can be fitted very quickly and with minimum of disruption - no lifting of rail or adjustment of sleepers is required to fit the components.
The roller is maintenance free and will remain serviceable for the life of the switch.
- Environmentally Compatible
The rollers provide no adverse environmental impact.
There is no soil or ground water contamination.
As the roller is fitted as an addition to the switch mechanism there is no need for disposal of sleepers or ballast.
The manufacture and method of fitting ensures the switch blade makes a correct and open position.
The force required to move the switch blade using Austroroll rollers is considerably less, thereby extending the life of the switch motor.
Over 100,000 have been installed throughout Europe; some in the most adverse of conditions.
