Intermediate pads and plates

Ideal interaction of resilience, rigidity, and load capacity

Intermediate pads and plates for the protection of track superstructures

Effective load distribution of rail base and sleeper

Directly installed under the rail base, intermediate pads and plates made by Wirthwein optimally distribute forces to reduce vibrations and impact sound for an increased travelling comfort. Rails and superstructure components last longer thanks to an optimum load distribution. In modern rail superstructure elastic rail supports take over this function. Depending on customer requirements, elastic intermediate pads are available in different degrees of rigidity and can therefore be optimally adjusted to the traffic load. Being exposed to different weather situations and temperatures, intermediate pads made by Wirthwein have convinced customers around the world for many years.
