Buffer stops

A buffer stop not only provides protection for the track, but is also a mechanical safety feature to protect passengers, rail vehicles and buildings. Buffer blocks are available in different designs. They are used to safely slow down oncoming rail vehicles weighing hundreds to thousands of tons.  

A basic distinction is made between fixed buffer stops and brake buffer stops. Fixed buffer stops return the kinetic energy of the collision to the impacting traction unit and absorb the buffer impact. Brake buffer blocks, on the other hand, absorb a much larger amount of energy and can convert it along a calculated braking distance. Our experienced developers and technicians work out the buffer stop designs that are right for your application.
