Our high-performance rail anchors provide a tried and tested solution for fixing rails to sleepers.
L.B. Foster Rail Technologies Fair® rail anchors’ unique design is made of a special T-shaped spring steel, forged and heat treated for uniform strength and extended performance. Fair® rail anchors are a ‘drive-on’design.
- Provide full rail base contact
- Distribute creeping loads evenly
- Eliminate sleeper chewing and climbing
- Deliver largest sleeper bearing area.
Our Fair® rail anchors are available for almost any rail size in two types:
- XL-1 Fair® for standard applications
- Improved Fair® for heavy duty and challenging installations.
We constantly appraise our rail anchor manufacturing processes to assure the FAIR® Rail Anchor remains the dominant anchor in track.
Our Overdrive Stop feature assures proper application every time, by either manual or machine application.
Provides full rail base contact. FAIR® is the only anchor to eliminate flex in frozen ballast rail “pumping” conditions.
Tie Bearing Area
A greater contact area than any other design reduces wood fibre crushing prolonging sleeper life.
The vice-like action on rail base resists rail movement on average more than any other drive-on anchor, providing superior holding power.
Our premium quality steel anchor integrity is maintained for long lasting service.
