Buffer Stops

Fixed buffer stops

Fixed buffer stops are essentially 'end of line' systems with frames fixed directly onto the rails, these type of buffer stops have no energy absorbing ability unless used in conjunction with Oleo hydraulic energy absorption systems to dissipate the impact energy. These systems also have the ability to self-reset after impact.

Typically used on 'end of line' - designed for center impact only. Fixed buffer stop incorporating Oleo hydraulic units [one Oleo Type 76 – Recoverable stroke 600mm] Train mass: 300 tonnes, Impacting speed: 5km/h, Installation length: 2.8 meters, Impact capacity: 336 kJ.
