In the event of a crash or incident, unprotected track ends can lead to injuries to engineers, passengers, derailments, extensive damage to train sets and facilities behind tracks such as pipelines. All have to be reported. Depending on the extent of injuries, lawyers move in and that means Litigation.
Look at the following crash photos; they could have been avoided with the adequate protection provided by Sliding Friction Bumping Posts equipped with energy absorbing brake shoes. We offer the protection of Rawie units now in use on the large majority of North American Transit Systems.
Damage caused to an L.R.T. Vehicle after it had over-run the end of the track and crashed into a sand box.
A light rail train derailed at the Baltimore-Washington International Airport stop. The operator and 22 passengers were hurt.
These kinds of stops have a limited capacity which, if exceeded, leads to damage to the track and derailment of the cars.
While the wood/earth types of bumping posts are inexpensive, they often prove more trouble than they are worth.
Insurance does not repair or replace people and the cost of repairing vehicles and track is not cheap! Rawie, who have supplied more than 40,000 units worldwide, offer units suitable for Transits, Yards, Airport People Movers, Mines, and large Industrial Plants such as Steel Mills. They stop costly crashes.
