Rail Joints

Rail Joint General Introduction

Rail joint is used to connect two rails together so as to ensure the safety and smoothly of train running. The rail joints are usually made of flat steel with four or six holes. As the most important part of rail joint system, on the one hand, when meeting the very high heat climate, rails will tend to expand or get longer, and the rail joint can provide rooms for expansion. On the other hand, rail joint is always installed near the road crossing, which gives great convenience for the repair crews to remove pieces of rail track with ease. AGICO has been committed to produce rail fastenings, rail joint systems and steel rail for at least 20 years. Whatever international standard or non-standard rail joint can be provided by us.
