The Vector Embedded Rail System is based on high performance, one piece, molded, micro cellular foam polymer with no voids or cavities. The boot incorporates features to simplify jointing and installation as well as providing wheel overrun protection and skid resistance.
Manufactured from advanced micro cellular polyurethane, Vector has an exceptional ability to retain its resilience and geometry over a 30+ year design life.
Vector™ offers the opportunity to adjust the profile and material density of the rail boot, to provide the optimal combination of firm lateral support, with low vertical stiffness, to enhance vibration attenuation.
The features incorporated in the Vector™ boot, combined with Trelleborg's 'Fast Fix' methodology, lead to simple, high quality and fast assembly and installation of the complete rail embedment solution
Vector™ rail embedment was first installed in 2003 and has been in service in major light rail networks since 2008.
Vector™ Rail Embedment is an example of Trelleborg's advanced 3D micro cellular polyurethane technology.
