Reducing the need for maintenance work on railways

Solutions to resist the upward movement of fine soil particles, and reinforcement to improve bearing capacity over weaker subgrades or prevent deformation of ballast.

Enka-Tex strongly reduces the pumping effect of dynamic loads. Where local soil demands further reinforcing measurements, Enkagrid will improve the load distribution capacity and, with its interlocking effect, stiffen the soil at grid level creating a soil-geogrid composite.

Enka-D-Tect allows for electromagnetic detection of sub-base movement and facilitates non-destructive monitoring of the trackbed. Enka-D-Tect is a non-woven geotextile that includes a metallic element at regular intervals in cross-machine direction.

OUR SOLUTION
  • Resists upward passage of fine soil particles.
  • Improves bearing capacity over weaker soils.
  • Prevents deformation of the ballast.
  • Facilitates non-destructive monitoring of the trackbed.
  • Enables early detection of sub-base movement.
  • Reduces maintenance.
Functions
  • Separation.
  • Reduction of pumping effects.
  • Track-bed motion sensing.
  • Reinforcement.
