Intermediate track area
The intermediate track is the part of the turnout that connects the switch to the crossing area.
This typically consists of four rails with the perfect curvature to maintain the geometry of the turnout.
In many rail networks the track itself is used as a conduit for the signaling system. For this reason it is necessary to install isolating joints, generally in the deviated track, to interrupt the electrical signals. This insulation is physical, so the correct execution of the seal is vital for safety and maintenance.
At Amurrio we have certified more than 43,000 glued isolating joints (JAE) in different configurations (90º, 45/90º, 45º, 30/90º).
