Leniter Ballast Mat System

Leniter Ballast Mat System

Rail lines and surrounding areas are subjected to significant vibration generated by the passage of rolling stock. This structural vibration can have a significant negative impact for both the track system and the neighbouring communities and businesses.

An under-ballast solution, Trelleborg’s Leniter Ballast Mat system is installed directly under the track ballast, providing enhanced vibration isolation and protection to the rail track components. The system extends the period of track availability between rail tamping scheduled maintenance, alongside delivering the environmental benefit of reduced disturbance, through a reduction in local noise pollution.

Trelleborg’s Leniter Ballast mat system is a fit and forget solution, tailored to each individual application to meet and exceed the required attenuation targets. Installing a combined Leniter Ballast Mat and reduced ballast system, offers improved performance compared to a ballast only system.
