GenieMat RAIL BST ballast mats are engineered according to project requirements to provide vibration isolation and reduce ballast stress.
Due to the change in substructure stiffness, track components in bridge transition zones are subject to higher impacts and vibrations magnitudes.
If these areas are left untreated, the track, ballast, and sleepers will suffer a shortened lifespan and increased operating costs.
To reduce impacts in bridge transition zones, engineers use FEA to specify GenieMat BST products that will moderate the stiffer portions of track and equalize deflection throughout.
Engineered for transit and freight rail lines
Proven to be most effective method of reducing
Provides high-performance ground-borne vibration
isolation in critical locations
Water permeable for drainage
Rubber or polyurethane foam
Impregnable protection surface extends the contact area of the ballast to provide greater stability.
Structural mesh provides monolithic reinforcement.
The resilient elastomer is engineered dependent on project conditions.
When acoustical isolation is necessary, Pliteq offers insertion loss calculations based on the use of GenieMat BST under the specific project conditions.
L.B. Foster has partnered with Pliteq as their North American distributor of Ballast Mats.
