Embedded Concrete-Rubber (ECR)

OMNI’s Embedded Concrete-Rubber (ECR) grade crossing system is the latest generation of OMNI’s patented single-component, concrete-rubber design. ECR is designed with the rubber flange seal molded into the face of the steel clad, steel reinforced concrete panels.

ECR is the fastest and easiest concrete crossing system to install because of its unique integrated concrete-rubber design.

As with all concrete systems, a well constructed foundation and track structure will ensure optimum life and performance. ECR is suitable for most traffic conditions.

Improved-Concrete (IC)

The OMNI Improved-Concrete system incorporates OMNI rubber RailGuard panels with precast concrete panels. The steel-framed, steel-reinforced concrete panels are designed to handle heavy highway traffic, as well as heavy truck traffic. The virgin rubber RailGuard panels cushion load, control surface water, and provide electrical insulation. The broom finished surface provides high friction for excellent traction.

TraCast™

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.
