Features of railway fastening

1.Good anti-breaking performance

All-steel cold-press national standard railway fasteners have the advanced structure, their all-steel plate cold forming, strength and toughness have exceeded national and international standards, completely eliminating the possible accidents caused by broken fasteners and scaffold collapse.

2. Strong anti-rusty performance

The galvanized anti-corrosion treatment can greatly improve the anti-rusty performance and so the service life of new fasteners exceeds that of old fasteners, overcoming the problems of old fasteners, eliminating the hidden dangers. These can guarantee and improve the overall mechanical performance and safety performance.

3. Fast and Convenient

The structure optimized railway fasteners are lightweight, beautiful and comfortable. They can reduce labor intensity in working process.
