Iron Horse Engineering Co. developed the rail boot in 1987, providing an electrical isolation barrier between the steel rail and surrounding roadway for embedded track. This resilient barrier absorbs rail vibration, minimizing the cracking of the surrounding concrete.
Available with or without Flangeway Former.
The Iron Horse rail boot has been installed on most every light rail and streetcar system in the United States.
The Iron Horse Engineering rail boot offers the following benefits to your project:
Control of Stray Currents
Reduction of Noise & Vibration
Profiles for Any Rail Section
Quick, Foolproof Installation
Improved Life of Surrounding Pavement
We have rail boot to fit most rail profiles, including:
136/132RE, 115RE, 115 Restraining Rail, 100RA 90lb & 85lb and girder rail profiles for Ri 51, Ri 59/60, and 112 block rail.
Many more domestic and international rail profiles are available.
