noise reducing extensional rail damper
Decidamp® RTD is a high-performance engineered polymer composite designed to effectivity reduce structure borne noise generated during contact between the track and railway rolling stock wheel - also known as wheel/rail interface.
By using our internal research and development team, together with leading acoustic engineers, acoustic modelling was carried out in controlled laboratory conditions. On-site field testing also ensures dampers are optimised to deliver maximum effectiveness on any track configuration.
Decidamp RTD can be easily fitted to existing and new rail track as a method of complying with noise legislation and environmental planning regulations. Decidamp RTD dampers are easliy attached to either side of the rail using specially designed brackets.
Once installed RTD will absorb vibrations efficiently and reduce rail generated noise. They are designed to be installed and fitted to most rail tracks and can be designed or tuned to meet customer noise requirements.
Decidamp RTD is a cost-effective option to reduce radiating noise from railway rolling stock.
