Application Trackbeds

GERB trackbed isolation - rail transit (routed) without restrictions

Rail transport systems cause vibrations and structure-borne noise, which can be disturbing for sensitive areas such as residential buildings, concert halls, and hospitals.

We construct floating-trackbed systems, offer protection measures to reduce these vibrations, and enable rail systems to adhere to compulsory limit values. Depending on the damping required, spring systems or elastomeric pads can be used.

Thanks to low frequency system resonances, simple design, and reduction of maintenance, GERB systems offer an effective and reliable solution for protection of nearby buildings. They can be implemented in tunnels, at ground level, on bridges, and viaducts. Depending on the adjustment frequency and surrounding conditions, verifiable insulation efficiency of up to 99% can be achieved.

The GERB system is used for:

  • Tram, underground, and elevated railway tracks in local public transportation
  • Complete tracks including high-speed tracks in long-distance public transportation
  • Heavy load tracks in goods transportation.

GERB provides elastic support systems, engineering, assembly and inspections to solve your vibration problem. You can find our complete range of services here.

In addition to these services, we also offer designs in the field of platform damping taking into account international standards such as DIN FB101, AASHTO and special fatigue-life calculations. We work worldwide with consultants, planners, construction firms, and operators.
