Insulating Joints

Insulating joints are electrically insulating rail joints used in railway signalling. The seamless welding of the tracks makes it necessary to install high-quality bonded and high-strength bolted insulation joints, as we produce them.

We can supply you with the following insulation joints:

  • Type ISW - The insulation joint type ISW has been developed as a pure workshop joint and is delivered to the customer together with the rails in rail lengths according to the customer's requirements.

  • Type ISB Pro - The system is supplied as a kit - semi-finished product for workshop production with an adhesive for workshop conditions and a curing time of 8 hours (20°C). The pre-coated flaps are insulated and must be glued and screwed into the flap chamber area of the rails.

  • Type ISB - The system is supplied as a kit - semi-finished product for bonding on site with an adhesive with a curing time of 1 hour (20°C). The pre-coated flaps are insulated and must be glued and screwed into the flap chamber area of the rails.

  • Type ISK - Insulation joints with insulating flaps made of glass-fibre reinforced polyester ISK. The ISK system is intended as a simple solution for:

    • Tracks and switches which are not completely welded or where the final position of the glued insulation joints is not yet fixed and are provisionally integrated into the safety system.
    • Temporary solution for damaged bonded insulation joints
