Turnouts with a straight section in the branching direction
Turnouts with a straight section in the branching direction, produced for both right and left diversions, can be used as facing as trailing. They are designed for use in the most demanding conditions of tramway tracks. Turnouts guarantee a high level of passage safety, quiet function, ecologically harmless and a long lifetime with minimum requirements for maintenance. The turnouts are made from groove rail profile required by the consumer (60R1, 60R2, 59R2, NT1, Ri57A,, etc.). The crossing (frog) part is a weldment from the crossing block (310C1 in quality R220 or R260) and welded rails (full head rails NT, 105C1, 73C1, Ri57AVK, etc. in quality R220 or R290GHT) with machined grooves and ramps. Guard (check) rails located opposite the frog are produced from full head rails also.
- In cooperation with the facing or trailing setting system an automated or manual setting of the switch blades into the required direction and thus a safe tramway train passage in the straight or branching direction.
- The switch construction enables the use of modern, unified setting devices with the setting and checking rod.
