L.B. Foster Company: High-Performance Insulated Rail Joints

L.B. Foster Company

L.B. Foster offers rail joints designed for high-performance rail lines. The innovative fabric used as the insulator extends the life of the joint bar far beyond the typical product life cycle, reducing maintenance costs, the company says. This insulative material is six times stronger than steel and will not fracture like traditional fiberglass mat insulators, making it ideal for high stress and high compression environments, the company says.
