Keeping Your Railways Safe with Magnetic Technology

Speak to our experts about your next project

RSS Infrastructure has developed magnetic track safety solutions to create a safer and more efficient environment for track workers. These solutions utilise the latest magnetic technology to attach the product to the rail web.

The magnetic track safety system provides temporary barrier fencing for enhanced safety, increases productivity, and reduces costs. It is over 20 times faster to install and dismantle compared to traditional methods, requiring substantially less physical effort. This results in shorter possession times and lower mobilisation costs, leading to improved productivity and efficiency.

Safe, simple, and light, our magnetic track safety equipment consists of two components and requires no tools. It can be used even under freezing conditions when the ballast is frozen or covered with snow and eliminates the potential for ‘track distortion’ in high temperatures.

Improving Worker Safety in any Environment

In addition to creating a safer working environment, the magnetic barrier fencing system is versatile and usable in S&C areas, as well as in freezing conditions. The system’s simple magnetic attachment to the rail web prevents the need to remove or replace ballast, avoiding disturbance and inhalation of harmful ballast dust.

Safe and Efficient Solution

Overall, RSS Infrastructure’s magnetic track safety solutions offer a safer and more efficient alternative to traditional methods. By utilising magnetic technology, the products are safe, simple, and light, requiring minimal physical effort. Their versatility ensures usability in various conditions, including freezing temperatures. The magnetic barrier fencing and Magnetic Points Protocol Boards are certified to EN 13374 (Class A) and Network Rail PA05 05085, ensuring compliance with industry standards for quality and safety.

Magnetic Barrier Fencing: Faster, Safer, and More Efficient

Magnetic fencing is usable in most railway infrastructure areas. It offers simple, safe, and fast assembly/disassembly with a magnetic attachment to the rail web, without the need to remove or replace ballast. This solution allows tamping and ballast cleaning to continue while in situ and can be installed under Lookout protection.

Easy to Transport: Magnetic barrier fencing is designed to reduce heavy lifting and allow for easy transportation.

Strong Magnetic Attachment: The magnetic attachment connects to the rail web without needing to remove or replace ballast.

Robust Fibreglass Poles:The fencing poles are made of reinforced glass fibre and feature a unique locking connection for protection against environmental and structural damage.

Magnetic Points Protocol Boards: Safe Instruction for Train Drivers

Our Magnetic Points Protocol Boards use magnetic technology to provide clear instructions to train drivers about the track ahead. The boards attach magnetically to the rail web, and the strong magnets keep the boards securely in place.

Temporary Safety Technology: Like magnetic barrier fencing, the Magnetic Points Protocol Boards are easy to install and remove. They can be placed quickly and easily, making them ideal for temporary situations.

Avoid Points Damage: The boards act as a visual reminder to drivers and operators to stop and examine the points before advancing, reducing the risk of damage to the points.

Informs Workforce: The boards are located at the S&C worksite’s trailing end to ensure vehicle operators and crane controllers are aware of the switch direction.

Frequently Asked Questions

A magnetic safety barrier is a product supplied by RSS Infrastructure that utilises magnetic technology to attach to the rail web and provide temporary barrier fencing for enhanced safety of track workers.

Compared to traditional methods, the magnetic track safety barrier is over 20 times faster to install and dismantle, requiring substantially less physical effort. It also results in significantly shorter possession times and lower mobilisation costs, leading to enhanced customer productivity and efficiency.

Yes, magnetic safety barriers have been shown to be highly effective in preventing accidents. By creating a physical barrier between the workers and the trains, magnetic safety barriers greatly reduce the risk of accidental contact and improve overall safety on the rail infrastructure.

Transporting magnetic safety barriers to the worksite using a rail trolley is straightforward. The barriers are designed to be lightweight, easily portable, and easy to lift and manoeuvre onto a trolley. However, ensuring the trolley is properly loaded and secured is important to prevent the barriers from shifting during transit.

Yes, magnetic safety barriers are designed to be easily assembled and dismantled, allowing for quick setup and removal as needed. The barriers are made of modular components that can be easily connected and disconnected, and many are also equipped with magnetic connectors that allow them to be attached and detached from the rail quickly and easily. This makes magnetic safety barriers a convenient option for temporary safety measures during maintenance or repair work on the rail infrastructure.

The Magnetic Points Protocol Board is an innovative product that utilises magnetic technology to provide clear instructions to train drivers about the track ahead. It is attached magnetically to the rail web, and the strong magnets ensure the boards remain securely in place. It acts as a visual reminder to drivers and operators to stop and examine the points before advancing, reducing the risk of damage to the points.
