Save money on the lifetime cost of high quality heating elements.

It is very expensive to change a broken heating element during the winter season. The element + transportation + 2x persons to go on-site + security personel + blocking the traffic + compensation to train operators if delayed. In this price picture it is not worth even considering cheap low quality elements.

The SSV type has an extra slimline design that allows the element to be installed in the narrow space e.g. between the sliding chair and the stock rail on smaller rail profiles.

The unique and shock absorbent design makes our flexible flat heating elements a reliable solution, which withstands the harsh train traffic environment. The single ended connection ensures that moisture problems are avoided.

We manufacture our heating elements in various sizes, shapes, length, electrical compatibility, energy intensity, insulation grades and outer shield material. Everything to meet the specific local demands and conditions, and to fulfil the customer’s special requirements.
