Nu-Rock technology can be applied successfully for the manufacture of superior performing high speed railway sleepers. Developed and refined in conjunction with Wollongong University NSW, Nu-Rock high speed railway sleepers represent a great step forward for the rail sector, delivering stronger more durable sleepers in addition to meaningful time and cost savings for railway owner/operators.
The absence of any pre-stressed steel in the production process makes Nu-Rock high speed railway sleepers significantly easier and faster to manufacture. Importantly, by containing up to 95% recycled material, Nu-Rock high speed railway sleepers are a sustainable alternative to traditional concrete railway sleepers. By containing up to 35% shredded rubber tires, Nu-Rock high speed railway sleepers excel at absorbing vibration and considerably reducing the spread of the ballast under the track and sleepers.
