Magnetic Barrier obtains Network Rail approval!

Magnetically attached Safety Barrier secures Network Rail Certificate/Approval Number:  NR PA05 05085


Another major achievement for the Rail Safety Systems BV Magnetic Safety Barrier has been achieved following the winning of the European Safety Innovation Award at Amersfoort and product acceptance from TUV Germany.

 Following extensive testing the Rail Safety systems BV Magnetic Safety Barrier has received full approval and acceptance from Network Rail for use of the system throughout the UK rail infrastructure.  (NR Reference PA05/05085)

 Speed of erection and dismantling, sustainability, ease of use, and the fact that the system does not interfere with track circuits or axle counters was a major consideration for engineers.  Having satisfied themselves on these issues, certification followed.

 The distinct advantages of the system are:

  1. The RSS Railway Safety System consists of only two components
  2. The RSS Railway Safety System has been tested by HHC/DRS Inspecties B.V. and certified to EN 13374 (Class A), and is approved by Network Rail  PA05 05085
  3. No loose components
  4. No tools needed
  5. No danger of damaging underground signaling cables
  6. Allows tamping & ballast cleaning to continue whilst in-situ
  7. Safe, simple and light
  8. 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
  9. Very fast build time and thus a major saving in working and possession costs
  10. Very strong magnet (tensile force up to 600 Kg/N)
  11.  Easy dismantling with one arm movement
  12.  Does NOT affect track circuits or Axle counters
  13.  Can be used in areas with S & C
  14.  The patented Magnetic Safety Barrier is easy to use and will therefore, be used!
