the noise absorbers.
STRAILastic_A synth & inox absorbers are rail dampers which reduce noise emissions. Rails are caused to vibrate due to their discontinuous support and the imbalance of the shifting rail wheel. Due to its weight the absorber damps the vibrations, and therefore reduces the noise.
STRAILastic_A synth & inox consist of a heavy elastomer compound. They are produced in a specialised vulcanising process.
Due to its large mass, the absorber works as a mass damper. In addition, the elastic material increases the overall damping effect. Thus, noise emissions are minimised in two ways.
STRAILastic_A synth & inox benefit from a unique know-how of the KRAIBURG group regarding rubber. No environmental hazardous materials are used - neither in the absorbers, nor in the STRAILastic_A fastening kit.
Innovation 2012 - STRAILastic_A > in two versions:
Our current metal-free system made of a vulcanised natural rubber mixture with a plastic clamp.
Depending on the situation of installation the new version “inox” with a steel core can be installed. An extremely durable fastening with rust-proof stainless steel clamps belongs to “inox”.
Both versions are available for all common types of railways and superstructures. We assist you in choosing.
Ideally, STRAILastic_A synth & inox are used to reduce noise from tracks running through residential and/or other urban areas as well as across steel bridges.
