Tubular Track System | Advantages
The rail, held up in all its length, does not suffer the stress between sleepers, which happens in the ballast line, which provides it longer life cycle and reduces costs.
The rigidity of the system improves the distribution of loads on the infrastructure, increasing its life cycle and that of the rails.
The system is perfectly connectable to the conventional system (ballast), without integrity loss.
In lines operating more than 14 years with this system, neither the line nor the turnouts needed any maintenance intervention or any geometry correction.
Because it is a permanent structure, this system allows the drainage of the water from inside the line to be collected by side canals.
Signaling and energy cables can be laid down in the interior of the beams and/or between these and the ground. Which prevents vandalism and thefts.
