Fixed and dynamic rail termination systems
The Fixstop and Dynastop are products for intercepting trains while causing a minimum of damage to the train and the buffer stops themselves. These buffer stops are unique because of their extremely robust steal construction containing specialised brake shoes. Several tests have shown that the fixed as well as the dynamic version can absorb an impact of more than 1,000 kN. This result is achieved by a clever method of determining the dimensions of the buffer stops’ design.
- Avoidance of unnecessary high costs due to damages to the train
- Avoidance of danger for both the train driver and possible passengers
- High quality product, as demonstrated by train crash tests
The buffer stop is made of tubular steel frame accommodated with middle and side buffers. This design makes it suitable for absorbing the impacts of both passenger and freight trains. Furthermore, its galvanised high quality steel frame that is covered by a two-layer powder coating guarantees an operational life of 40 years.
