Lindapter – C41 and track

Lindapter, established in 1934, is a global market leader in the design and manufacture of steelwork clamping systems that provide a faster alternative to drilling or welding, which saves contractors time and money.

At stand C41, Lindapter will exhibit its latest range of CE approved fixings that are used for a range of applications including overhead line equipment, station buildings, station fittings, facades, depots,  rail bridges, access walkways and structural reinforcement.

This year, Lindapter will also exhibit the Type HD clip on the track area next to the Lindapter stand. Lindapter’s range of Type HD clips provide a quick way to align and secure low-speed rails, providing a strong, reliable and long-lasting connection.

Visit Infrarail stand C41 to pick up your copy of the latest Lindapter catalogue and Lindapter’s rail brochure that includes a list of Network Rail approved products.

Low & Bonar – H36

Low & Bonar, as a pioneer producer of geosynthetics, will bring a wide range of products for civil engineering to Infrarail. Within the rail segment, the applications supported by its Enka Solutions branded products include retaining structures, drainage, separation, erosion control, ballast and sub-ballast reinforcement and trackbed motion to provide a more robust infrastructure and help reduce maintenance.

The Adfil brand stands for over three decades of experience in concrete reinforcement. Applied to replace conventional steel reinforcement, macro-synthetic fibres deliver major gains in the construction of slab tracks. Advantages include easier and faster construction, low electrical conductivity, as well as outstanding long-term durability.

For both Enka Solutions geosynthetics as well as Adfil concrete reinforcement fibres, free design support is available. The team is looking forward to meeting visitors to booth H36 to discuss how they can take benefit with their next rail project.

Mabey – D19

Mabey will be showcasing its relevant rail related capabilities – an extensive range of site monitoring solutions, alongside temporary and permanent bridging.

An industry-leading range of monitoring solutions provides vital, real-time information about structural change and environmental impact.  Its expert team brings together a wealth of engineering experience with cutting edge technology to give highly accurate measurement through real-time information about stress, load, noise and more.

A new all-modular, all-steel bridge and abutment solution from Mabey combines the company’s best-selling modular steel bridge, the Compact 200™, with Bolt-A-Bin®, an innovative modular steel abutment system. The solution substantially reduces project costs on materials, installation and overall programme delivery, and is transforming the world of modular bridging.

This new development adds to Mabey’s reputation as a capable, established and preferred supplier of bridging and ‘temporary works’ infrastructure solutions for the rail sector, helping to deliver infrastructure projects more quickly, safely and efficiently though innovation, sustainable design and collaboration.

Marshalls CPM – B55

Marshalls CPM will have a range of Redi-Rock™ modular block walling on stand B55 at this year’s Infrarail Show.

The ‘big block’ precast concrete solution offers both time and cost savings to customers as well as endless design possibilities. It was first used by Dean and Dyball for Network Rail on the Blackboy Tunnel/Exmouth Junction where a section in a cutting, approximately 20 meters long, required stabilising.  Historically, there had been several small slips which had resulted in a timer post and sleeper retaining wall being constructed and this was in the process of collapsing onto the S&T trough route.

The Marshalls CPM modular block retaining wall was designed to replace this arrangement.

Since this first project, the concrete block system has been used on extensively on other Network Rail projects, due to its strength and earth retaining capabilities, keeping both the train and track safe whilst offering a pleasant viewing experience.

Minova UK – A15

Minova is a global manufacturer of resins, cementitious and mechanical earth control products. With manufacturing plants on five continents and operations in more than 25 countries, Minova is an industry-leading provider of ground support solutions for the underground mining, construction, tunnelling and civil engineering industries.

Most civil and structural engineers may be more familiar with the term ‘geotechnics’ as a catch-all for the solutions we provided their sectors. Over the recent years Minova has been quietly working away with specialist geotechnical and tunnelling sub-contractors, and a few main contractors, to fine tune its offerings for the wider construction industry.

2018 will see the relaunch of the completely overhauled UK-specific Minova web site – Minova’s global and European web sites have already been relaunched.

Minova sees Infrarail 2018 as a key vehicle to move its solutions into the light with respect to the wider construction industry.

Mixamate – F72

Mixamate provides batching plant standard concrete and screed in a handy mix-on-site service.

At Infrarail 2018, Mixamate will be exhibiting its new all-in-one Concrete Pumping Truck. The innovative new machine offers the delivery, mixing, and pumping of concrete from a single vehicle, so contractors don’t need to hire a separate pump anymore! This greatly reduces the hassle associated with traditional pumping jobs, as well as the number of vehicles on-site, and provides a level of flexibility perfect for rail jobs, which often happen at short notice.

Representatives from Mixamate will be on-hand to provide information and advice about the service, as well as its new All-in-One Screed Pumping Truck which is now also available. Mixamate increasingly working on projects in the rail sector these days, including a recent job for Hochtief at Highbury & Islington station in London, and can provide advice on how best to provide this form of mix-on-site delivery.

Movax – B31

Movax’s way-of-piling has become the industry standard for rail-related piling. Rail contractors are now using the full benefits of the Movax product range, which includes innovative piling equipment for all conditions encountered on the railway.

The Movax range of piling and handling products will be introduced at Infrarail, including several new developments.

Side-grip (SG) vibratory pile drivers are excavator-mounted, high-frequency, vibratory-type pile drivers for handling, pitching, driving and extracting piles in a wide range of site and soil conditions.

DH hydraulic, impact-type piling hammers are excavator-mounted for driving load- bearing piles or assisting in sheet pile driving in even the most difficult soil conditions. They can be mounted directly onto the excavator or, when greater depths are required, onto an excavator-mounted leader mast.

Movax manipulators are designed for fast, flexible and efficient handling of masts and poles especially for rail applications. Based on the patented side-grip technology, the MPM-4000 is designed for superior manoeuvrability, safety and accuracy.
