Palisade fencing post or key clamp system anchored within the supported BaFix structures using the fence post anchoring system Sleeve-It by Strata Systems, Inc.
Why use Asset BaFix?
The Asset BaFix system could reduce the levels of maintenance caused by the loss of the ballast shoulder over-time and assist in the following situations by reducing:
Lateral stability caused by ballast tamping.
Loss of ballast during flooding or on soft ground.
Loss of ballast at the intersection of the rail overbridge with
a road underbridge.
The benefit of the Asset BaFix system:
The performance benefits of using a lightweight containment unit in 6m lengths is that it is more economical, it maintains a long design life and it’s fast installation method is a benefit against most conventional rail retaining methods.
Asset BaFix was used on this project to provide a track ballast shoulder
Asset BaFix is produced in three different heights 1.0m, 0.7m
Asset BaFix can be used for OLE mast foundation stabilisation.
Cannock to Bloxwich route. Asset BaFix ballast retention was installed to two sides of a single entrance of the underbridge.
