Guide Rail

Guide rails or check rails are the optimal wheel guidance in the crossing area. 

Since trams have to be guided separately in the area of turnout crossings, in order to bypass the interrupted running edge in the crossing, different types of guide rails are used in our turnouts depending on the application. With all our guide rail designs, we place great importance on safety, availability, durability and a material-appropriate maintainability.
