Special Trackwork Components
Rail expansion joints with longitudinally movable stock rails

In addition to the classical turnout products, VADEMSAS also supplies special components like rail expansion joints in order to lay tracks across civil engineering structures (large bridges or viaducts). These constructions change their length because of external influences like traffic load, temperature and wind. Occasionally, these loads lead to rotations of the end span in the abutment connection.

Special trackwork components like rail expansion joints are used to securely bridge these length variations and, if required, accomodate end span rotations.
