Derby RRAP Installation.

June 14, 2022

This 72-metre single track RRAP was recently installed at Etches Park in Derby by the team at Premier Rail Services Limited using our solid rubber Baseplate Crossing System. The curved RRAP will provide easy track access while maintenance work is completed at the railway traction and rolling stock maintenance depot (T&RSMD) operated by East Midlands Railway.
 
Our innovative Baseplate Crossing System is the ideal solution for occupational crossings, pedestrian crossings, RRAPS, or other light-use crossings, and is secured using baseplate clips which allow for very fast installation and the removal of individual panels.
 
Panels are connected using a galvanised steel Turret Baseplate Clip, secured in slots moulded into the underside of each panel. Longitudinal movement of the crossing is prevented with the use of our galvanised steel Winged Baseplates, designed to straddle the width of the sleeper.
