Keeping rail safety and reliability on track

An efficient railway is one of the most important factors for a country’s prosperity and growth. It keeps the economy going by providing a transport infrastructure to distribute goods and connect people and places with opportunities and services.

However, trains need to be safe, reliable and on time, which means that bolt loosening is not an option as repairs can be expensive and even dangerous.

Train motions involve heavy vibration and constant movement, so it is essential that each bolt, nut and washer is securely fastened to provide complete assurance.

Disc-Lock HRD Loc-Nuts and Disc-Lock Washers are used in the building and maintenance of rail infrastructure and rolling stock, ensuring that every bolting system stays put.

From the humble steam locomotive to modern-day high-speed trains travelling at 175 miles per hour, the rail industry understands the need to develop and forge ahead with the latest technology.
