Tata Steel sleepers are the most advanced in the world. The benefits of the Tata Steel sleeper are becoming increasingly self-apparent.
Investment in research and development has resulted in a range of products to meet modern operational demands and track laying methods. These optimise the combination of sleeper and fastening, for efficient installation and minimum maintenance.
Steel sleepers are lightweight, dimensionally more accurate than wooden or concrete and regarded as an effective technical solution for modern rail networks.
The principle benefits of steel sleepers are:
- Time and cost savings at installation
- Simple site preparation and installation
- Improved stability
- Reduced maintenance
- Environmental benefits due to reduced ballast requirement
- Sleeper finishing options
- Lightweight design, leading to ease of handling
Tata Steel offers a wide range of steel sleeper designs for different applications, including for heavier axle loads and higher speeds.
