The L.B. Foster Transit Products rail boot system allows for dynamic movement of the rail when embedded in concrete, asphalt or other material to protect the surrounding materials. It also provides electrical isolation and noise, and vibration mitigation. Our product is designed to install easier than any other available rail boot system.
The complete system includes splice cuffs, adhesive, filler, tape, plates, clips and leveling beams. Leveling beams, which are used for mounting and holding the rail in position for track embedment, can be offered in steel or composite material. Configurations are available for a variety of rail sections.
