Magnetic Barrier obtains TUV Approval

TÜV certifiction achieved after extensive testing to European Standards!

We are very proud to announce that Rail Safety Systems, after a year of extensive testing, has finally  obtained the TÜV (German National Railway) approval certificate for our magnetic mounted safety fence/barrier to protect railway workers!

Besides our European Approval (EN 13374) and the winning of the Innovation award during Railtech 2011 this is probably the most important highlight of the year for RSS.

The TÜV approval is an absolute must to be successful in Germany.
It also will open other markets in and outside Europe, because TÜV is also recognized there as a standard for safety and quality.

The distinct advantages of the system are:

  • No loose components.
  • No tools needed.
  • No danger of damaging underground signaling cables.
  • Allows tamping & ballast cleaning to continue whilst in-situ.
  • Safe, simple and light.
  • Simple, safe and fast assembly/disassembly, with a simple magnetic attachment to the web of the rail, with no requirement to remove or replace ballast.
  • Very fast build time and thus a major saving in working and possession costs.
  • Does NOT affect track circuits or Axle counters
  • Can be used in areas where S & C present
  • The patented Magnetic Safety Barrier is easy to use and will therefore, be used!
