Height Adjustment Pad For Rail Fasteners

In the rail fastening system for railroad tracks, the height adjustment is realized mainly by changing the thickness of the pad under rail or inserting a height adjustment pad under the rail or tie plate. The rail height adjustment pad is an important application in ballastless track rail fasteners. 

The commonly used material of height adjustment pads (or height adjustment plate) includes rubber, plastic such as HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene), and steel. The thickness of the height adjustment pad varies from 1mm to 20mm which depends on the specific place it’s been embedded and the material it’s used. Commonly seen thickness of the adjustment plates includes 1mm, 2mm, 5mm, 8mm, 12mm, etc.
