Railway Sleepers

Railway sleeper is a rectangular support for the rails in railroad tracks. in general, railway sleeper and rail fastening system fix rail together.

The railway sleepers should be both support the rails and keep the rails spaced to the correct gauge, and also transfer loads to the track ballast and subgrade, railway sleepers must have a certain flexibility and elasticity, which is neither hard nor soft.

When the train passes, railway sleepers can be suitably deformed to buffer the pressure, but after that, it must be recovered to the original shape as soon as possible.

The wooden sleeper has the characteristics such as elasticity, light weight, simple in making, good insulation properties, fasteners simply connect to the wooden sleepers, and it is easy to lay, maintenance and transport. What’s more, there is a greater coefficient of friction between the wooden sleepers and the ballast.
