Where to Buy Railway Sleepers?

Oct 25, 2017
AGICO Rail supports three types railway sleeper.


Railway sleeper is also called rail ties or crosstie. The railway sleeper is a support for the steel rails in railway tracks. The railway sleepers look like a rectangle. Even though the appearance of rail sleeper is not surprising, but it has a vital function.
 

Generally, the railway sleepers lay to the tracks, hold the rails upright and keep them to a correct gauge. Besides, the railway sleepers should convey the enormous pressure to the ballast bed and can be properly deformed to cushion the pressure, but the railway sleepers had to restore the status as much as possible after the trains passed away.
 

At first, the railway sleeper was made of wood. Because of the better elasticity and insulation, most of the railway sleepers are made of the wood. Not only for the mentioned, wood is influenced by the temperature change of the surrounding medium slightly. But using the wood to make the railway sleepers is bad for our environment. According to statistics, the world has laid about more than 30 million roots. 


Along with the reduction of forest resources and people's awareness of environmental protection, some countries produced the steel sleepers, concrete sleepers, and plastic sleepers. There are many types’ rail sleepers and sleepers’ manufacturers in the world, but where to buy the railway sleepers? How can you find the railway sleepers manufacturers?
