Pre-cast Sleepers

CEMEX Rail Products are the largest supplier of concrete sleepers and crossing bearers to the rail industry.

Pretensioned monoblock sleepers have been in use for over 60 years. During this time developments in design, testing and rail fastening have led to a range of high performance, high quality sleepers. The monoblock design provides a sleeper that maintains its geometry regardless of the conditions it’s placed in – a feature particularly important for the track gauge and rail seat inclinations.

The sleepers also provide excellent electrical resistance which is necessary for track circuiting. Due to its pretensioning any small cracks, caused by accidental damage such as derailments, automatically close owing the sleeper to remain serviceable. The weight of the sleeper, its end face design and the large soffi t area in touch with the ballast all help provide excellent track stability. The size of the soffit area also helps minimise ballast pressures and attrition.

By using the highest quality concrete the durability of the sleeper is ensured - being resistant to the decay expected from exposure to weather, chemicals, fungus, insects and abrasion. Sleepers fitted with direct rail fastenings are ideally suited for the high output sleeper renewal methods – which minimise both installation and subsequent track maintenance costs.

All sleepers and bearers manufactured meet Network Rail specifications: NR/SP/TRK/030, plus the draft European Standard for sleepers. They also meet CEMEX Rail Products’ own rigorous quality standards.
