Trotec at work – also for welding work in the track construction
The equipment option R turns a tent into a track construction work tent
If welding work is due on the tracks of a railway line, the workers need a quick-to-pitch tent, which has to enable safe and, even more importantly, one-man fastening. They have to be able to rely on the welding tent to withstand high temperatures and to provide shelter against wind and rain. This is exactly what the track construction work tent 250x180 KE-R has to offer.
The equipment option R as in "RAIL" or the tent 250x180 KE-R were specifically developed for use in the track construction sector. For the track superstructure welding crew its innovative type of fastening means a genuine improvement of the everyday working conditions: They no longer have to waste time with clearing away gravel, as is required for other tents in order to push securing rods underneath the rails, but instead use special tension belts to fix the tent directly on the track with a simple clamp fastening. This saves the knees and backs of your team and can be done in a matter of seconds by a single person before starting to pitch the tent. Consequently, it cannot be torn away by the wind during erection. For pitching the track construction work tent of the Trotec Group fewer people are required than for other fixing methods, thus leaving more workers with their hands free for more important activities.
Track superstructure welding covered by flame-retardant tent cloth
The special equipment "R" consists not only of the rail fixation: For instance, a flame-retardant cloth was used. The roof section is heat-resistant to 500 °C and protects the burner from rain. Due to the welded processing of the seams, the tent provides protection against the penetration of water all around. The vents specifically developed for this track construction work tent also prevent water ingress. Moreover, the zip fasteners are concealed and thus rainproof.
The option R as in "RAIL" applies to all assembly work tents
On principle all assembly work tents of our product range are available as R models. With the four classes of the KE-R series the Trotec Group, however, already defined the most commonly used tent sizes for track superstructure welding as standard series products.
