Insulators for Hamburg Hochbahn
About the project
GIPRO Outdoor Epoxy insulators are particularly well suited for decades of use in all weather conditions. The temperature resistance was successfully tested for a range of -40 ° to + 90 ° C in the type test. The mechanical properties of the new third rail insulators are also excellent. In the tests of the initial sampling, the required mechanical characteristic values for bending load and tensile load were exceeded by three respectively five times.
Thus, a completely safe and durable insulation is guaranteed. The cast resin used is characterized by excellent fire resistance and favourable smoke ratings. It is certified according to EN45545-1 to Hazard Level HL3 according to Requirement R23. Even according to ASTM standards, successful tests can be demonstrated.
Custom Cast Resin Insulators can be used for many types of track mounts and are already in use on various light rail and metro tracks around the world. They easily withstand both low temperatures and high UV long-term exposure.
