Traceability is achieved by recording on computer, the production data, weight check and visual check of each panel at the time of manufacture. Each panel can be traced to the order and manufacturing batch. This enables checking against the engineering drawings should the need arise at a later date.
Each panel is marked when moulded so it can be clearly read from above, the identification comprises of:
- Crossing grade
- Rail type
- Sleeper type
- Fastener type
- Year of manufacturer
for example: ROAD UIC60 B70 SKL14 2011
This provides a quick and easy on-site check so the engineer or site manager can ensure the panels meet the required specifications.
