Products > RailGuard™ VRA Crossing


OMNI Virgin Rubber RailGuard™ (VRA) is made from 100% virgin rubber. VRA protects the track structure by absorbing traffic impact loads, provides a positive flangeway which controls surface water runoff, and prevents breakup of the asphalt at the rail interface.

The VRA design has several benefits over other rail seal products. The panels are easy to handle and install. VRA's greater surface area provides better cushioning to the rail and is self-supporting. The durability of 100 percent virgin rubber makes VRA ideal for any traffic situation. Either asphalt or concrete can be used in conjunction with VRA.

The RailGuard™ VRA panel is designed to accommodate heavy traffic when a rail seal has been specified rather than a full width rubber crossing. Examples would be road crossings, intermodal yards, docks and industrial parks.
