Synthetic Railway Sleepers: Light, durable, strong and saves maintenance

Alom offers , along with Sekisui, a Synthetic Railway Sleepers. These synthetic sleepers are produced by compressing single strands of glass fibre with polyurethane foam using a high pressure extraction press. The expected lifetime is more than 50 years.

Symbiosis between wood and plastic

These sleepers widely applied in Japan’s railroad infrastructure.  So far, more than 870 km of track have been laid with these sleepers, main areas of application are turnouts, open steel girder structures and tunnels. The idea behind this was to devise a synthetic material featuring the same properties as natural wood, plus an extended life-span and weathering resistivity. Therefore, the synthetic  sleeper is a perfect symbiosis between wood and plastic, combining the advantages of both materials.
