7 Key benefits

1 Shorter construction times

The construction time and costs can be massively reduced when creating ‘temporary ballast retainers’.

2 Resource savings

The ballast usage and costs can be reduced when creating ‘permanent ballast retainers’.

3 Stability

Ballast bonding can stabilise crossing areas.

4 Safety

Bonding surfaces on high-speed lines increases safety.

5 Cost effectiveness

Bonding surfaces near railway stations enables them to be cleaned more cost effectively.

6 Innovation

Thanks to innovative machine technology, controlled automated bonding can be efficiently realised.

7 Environment

We protect our environment through optimised and minimal material consumption.

Fast, efficient and controlled track ballast bonding

equals major material, time and cost savings!


The advantages for you:

  • Shorter construction times
  • Lower costs
  • Fewer resources (ballast and bracing)
