Solutions for Rail
Tinsley Bridge Group specialise in the manufacture of safety critical rail infrastructure, trackside engineering and rail rolling stock components.
Tubular stretcher bar
Tinsley Bridge Group is one of just two suppliers manufacturing a new design of tubular stretcher bar which is being rolled out across the UK by Network Rail. Vital to the safe operation of the network, the bars keep points in position as a train passes and have been developed to give greater safety, last longer with significantly reduced maintenance and be easier to fit.
A rigorous process ensured that the safety-critical equipment could be introduced onto the passenger-carrying railway.
We have established relationships with leading global rail carriage and locomotive OEM manufacturers including Bombardier, producing rail suspension components such as high temperature, fire retardant silicone and VAMAC brake hoses, composite protective covers, suspension packers and signal antennae for many rail projects – seamlessly delivering innovative and highly cost effective engineering solutions from one single, fully accredited source.
High performance parts include high strength torsion bars and anti roll bars for high speed rail applications and advanced tubular solutions that reduce weight whist maintaining material integrity, strength and life span.
Our innovative FabBloc60A fire retardant barrier material provides tested and proven 60 minute fire protection against fire occurring in railway carriage flooring.
