Crossing 400HB

For this crossing design, we use highly wearresistant 400HB steel in the area of the crossing block in order to meet the demands for a long life cycle while reducing maintenance costs and effort.

According to the rail profile to be adapted, the design of the block consists of a sandwich or full block design. The welding rails connecting to the block may consist of rails for crossings and turnouts with incorporated grooves, standard rails with welded in wear-resistant guiding edges (deep groove only) and block rails made of wearresistant 400HB steel according to the available designs and are welded to the block.


  • Crossing block made of highly wear-resistant 400HB steel
  • Welding rails according to the track guidance relevant need and
  • Standard rail used in the turnout area
  • Construction rails (profile H = 180mm) 73C1 and 105C1 with integrated groove (flat and deep groove), quality R220G1
  • Standard rails with welded-in guide rail 400HB (deep groove) R200, R220, R260, 290GHT-CL, R290GHT, R340GHT
  • Highly wear-resistant welding rail made of 400HB steel (flat and deep groove)


  • Suitable for all rail profiles and rail qualities
  • Low maintenance due to excellent wear resistance through the use of highly wear-resistant 400HB steel
  • Optimized wheel overrun
  • Guaranteed interchangeability
  • Can be used for all turnouts in curve turnouts
  • Order and repair welding possible
  • Suitable for all types of rail fasteners
  • Aluminothermically weldable into the track
