Rail Comfort System | the
elastic rail encapsulation
RCS (Rail Comfort System)
the problem solver for your individual rail encapsulation system
The embedding of rail in the inner-city infrastructure places high demands on planners and coordinators. Tram traffic causes enormous shocks and vibrations in the vicinity of the track, which in many cases leads to damage to the surrounding superstructure, making frequent repairs necessary.
By using SEALABLE‘s Rail Comfort System, individually adapted to your project, problems of this kind can be avoided, the track can be decoupled from the adjacent superstructure and vibrations from tram traffic can be reduced to a great extent. The discharge of stray current is reduced to a minimum by our insulations.
The Rail Comfort System is suitable for use in any type of covering - whether road track (asphalt, paving, concrete) or grass track. Thus, the RCS® offers visual and functional added value at the same time. Our all-in-one solution can be adapted 100% to your requirements and thus offers maximum flexibility.
With the RCS® (Rail Comfort System), surrounding buildings are protected from structure-borne noise and the quality of life of residents is improved.

The best protection against structure-borne noise and stray current
With urbanisation, cities are growing and with them rail-bound traffic is moving even closer to the built-up area. Vibrations can have a considerable impact on the environment and severely impair the quality of life. With sensitive installations and equipment, even the smallest
vibrations can lead to a loss of quality. We specialise in developing effective solutions to reduce vibrations. In addition, metallic structures such as pipelines, tank vessels, reinforced cable sheaths and reinforced concrete structures are exposed to a corrosion risk due to the influence of unwanted stray currents.
SEALABLE offers you effective elastic rail support systems that not only reduce stray current losses but also make a significant contribution to avoiding structure-borne noise in daily railway operations.
STRAY CURRENT INSULATION
RCS® meets all your requirements for complete and sustainable rail insulation. It is perfectly suited for any type of rail profile, as well as switches and crossings.
REDUCTION OF STRUCTURE-BORNE NOISE
By reducing structure-borne noise with our Rail Comfort system, surrounding buildings are protected and the quality of life for residents is improved.
Areas of application
GROOVED RAIL ROAD TRACK
For an inner-city road track, the most important factors are durable use, high-quality insulation for the protection of the surroundings, and an overall aesthetic appearance. With the shortened profiles at the rail head, there is a free contact ...
GROOVED RAIL PAVEMENT TRACK
Paved track is the most elaborate type of street covering. This makes it all the more important here to ensure permanent use for a harmonious townscape. The side profile does not go all the way to the top edge of the ...
VIGNOL RAIL GRASS TRACK
Vignol rails are also often used in green tracks. Insulation, as well as natural inner city design, are important factors in building development. Thanks to greening, rainwater can be better absorbed and stored. In addition, it serves to ...
GROOVED RAIL GREEN TRACK
With green track, natural inner-city design is an important factor in addition to stray current insulation and noise damping. Thanks to the greening, fine dust can be reduced and rainwater can be better absorbed and stored ...
GROOVED RAIL WITH CONCRETE COVERING
The concrete superstructure is a high-strength covering for the heaviest loads, as it is necessary for stops. The longitudinal rail grouting is a susceptible maintenance element. With a wide profile head that goes up ...
SWITCHES & CONSTRUCTIONS
In the field of turnouts and constructions, there are some components that deviate from the typical rail shape. Be it the tongue or the frog or other switch parts. There is an individually adaptable insulation option with the proven Rail ...
In the course of regular maintenance work on rails in tracks, switches and crossing systems, it is common practice to regularly weld on the rails, especially in the case of grooved rail tracks with a cover. This so-called build-up welding on rails makes it possible to extend the service life of the rails and thus delays cost-intensive rail replacements in the roadflush track system. It is important that the insulation of the rails is resistant against such work, otherwise maintenance becomes a costly affair.
We can guarantee the heat resistance of our insulation for wear-related overlay welding work or also the reprofiling of tthe rails. This property of the Rail Comfort System, as well as its resistance to hot bitumen, has been proven by tests carried out by independent institutes.
Thanks to its special compound properties, the material is heat-resistant and can withstand temperatures above 270°C for a short time.

Easy handling with our Rail Comfort System
In addition to stray current insulation and structure-borne noise insulation, another important factor for the selection of an optimal rail encapsulation system is the easy handling.
In contrast to many other systems, the RCS® can be pre-assembled both locally and temporally independent of the construction progress. This means that the insulation is not tied to weather conditions or construction and closure times. Delivery is possible just-in-time, which avoids logistical bottlenecks.
In addition, this approach guarantees the highest level of quality and safety during installation. Contamination and improper assembly due to lack of time or untrained personnel do not occur with this option. The pre-assembly of the track components, for example, takes place in the factory under optimal temperature and working conditions.
