Products > TraCast™ Crossing


The OMNI TraCast™ grade crossing design is a system of precast concrete modules with a minimum compressive strength of 6,000 psi. Elastic fasteners are used to secure the rail to the base of the rail troughs. The module design eliminates the use of ties and ballast.

A continuous protective rubber rail boot insulates the rail from electrical interference. RailGuard™ rubber panels are installed on the gauge side of the rails to provide a positive flangeway and rail cushioning. The RailGuard™ rubber panels can be easily removed with a lining bar, eliminating the need of heavy equipment, for rail inspection and repair.

OMNI's TraCast™ system is ideal for highway, industrial, port and transit use.
