Rockdelta for Tracks

Vibration control solutions for pleasant rail-side living conditions

Learn more about stone wool

The world is moving towards a future in which 80% of the population will be living in urban environments. That movement will ensure more rail traffic and, consequently, more vibrations and noise. In that future you can make a difference with Rockdelta. By using our stone wool mats as the ultimate and most sustainable vibration control solution to protect people and architecture in the railway surroundings.

Vibration control

Protecting people and buildings from harmful vibration

Rockdelta solves ground vibration problems by isolating ground-borne and structure-borne vibration from rail transport systems: Tramways, light rail systems, subways, metros, main lines and high-speed lines.

Attenuation of vibration is achieved by decoupling the track from the ground using Rockdelta as a resilient mat.

Structure protection

Protecting subgrade and bridge deck by reducing ballast attrition

Rockdelta mats also protect the track superstructures against dynamic forces and extend the life of the ballast stones by reducing attrition, thereby enhancing overall ballasted track performance while significantly reducing the maintenance costs.

Stone Wool Benefits -The power of stone wool

High performance and sustainable technology and project efficiency with low project costs
