innoSTRAIL, the high-strength and durable covering
for level crossings.
We recommend using innoSTRAIL for level cros-
sings with medium to high traﬃc volume (> de-
pending on the track structure). Compared to
, this system - which is independent of
sleeper spacing - is made up of bigger, 900 mm
wide inner and outer panels, featuring a textile
enforced tongue and groove area.
innoSTRAIL is a high-strength and durable co-
vering for level crossings, which can be ma-
nufactured very economically due to the larger
panel measurements. The system also does not
require the use of ﬁller blocks.
The system, consisting of full depth rubber pa-
nels, has an integrated, narrow ﬂange groove
and is connected to form a complete package
using the lock tight system.

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
Rete Ferroviaria Italiana has been using STRAIL level crossings systems since more than 20
years (dal 1992) in all kind of level crossings.
Quality of products and Service were absolutely satisfying during this long business relation.
Usability and durability of STRAIL panels meet our specifications and expectations.
Most probably we will use STRAIL products also in our level crossings.

We connect street and rail.

simply are fast – for planning, building and
maintenance. Our oﬀers are typically drawn up
within 48 hours.
Your level crossing leaves our factory as ear-
ly as two weeks after placing your order.
Using a crew of 4-6 people and no additional
machines, you can install a 9 m long crossing in
merely three hours.
In case of track maintenance, STRAIL®

is diﬀerent - ranging from its technically
simple, yet fast and safe installation, to its ability
to bear continuous loads on a daily basis without
any gap formation.
The tongue and groove connection prevents -
especially in case of diagonal traﬃc - the drea-
ded “sudden collapse” eﬀect, well-known from
other single-panel systems.
Products which are part of the STRAIL®
have the smallest, permissible ﬂange groove.
veloSTRAIL eliminates this gap entirely. And the
patented surface of the STRAIL®
achieves the same skid resistance as asphalt
(even when wet).
. Safety for your level crossings and for

thing. Keeping them in excellent
condition is quite another. ”Fit & Forget” is our
motto; as a result: Maintenance-free level cros-

fulﬁlls your expectations.
What you have always wanted to know.
What are the STRAIL®
products made of?
(diﬀerence to other rubber panels)
All level crossing panels belonging to the STRAIL®
product family are made of rubber, while having
the smallest, permissible ﬂange groove. A special
feature is that the entire panel is fully vulcanized,
according to a patented production process. On
the basis of this complex production process it is
possible to achieve outstanding product features
and a signiﬁcantly longer service life.
In consultation with our design department,
special, dimensionally accurate panels are ma-
nufactured for the full-surface covering in the
area of the center and end parts of switches.
On principle, full-surface covering of radii is un-
problematic. Very tight radii are covered with a
speciﬁc number of special radii panels.
Application of STRAIL®
innoSTRAIL, pedeSTRAIL and veloSTRAIL
Depending on road and rail load, as well as indi-
vidual local conditions, a perfectly suited product
can be undoubtedly found within the STRAIL®
portfolio. It is generally recommended to consult
the responsible STRAIL®
representative, who will
gladly assist you in ﬁnding the right product for
your respective area of application.
