Point heating keeps railway points free of snow and ice. Heatpoint uses different heating methods, depending on prevailing weather conditions and existing infrastructure. These include gas heating (infrared radiation), electric heating (resistance strip elements) and liquid heating (using a CH boiler or ground heat).
The MAX cable duct is a robust and highly durable duct which Heatpoint designed specifically for railways. These ducts protect vulnerable cables and pipes from vandalism and other forms of abuse or heavy loads.
Roller slide plates are the ideal application for friction-free movement of the switch blades. Heatpoint chooses to supply Schwihag maintenance-free slide plates and roller plates systems for their high performance, quality and functionality.
Ever increasing speeds and rising pressure on the shafts mean that railway lines and their bases require more and more maintenance. Particularly vulnerable are railway level crossings and railway bridges with a crossing between a rigid and ballast base, as well as glue joints and point machines.
