All products offered by L.B. Foster Rail Technologies are supported by an experienced and determined Installation Team who will provide customers with a range of services designed to enhance the offering from the Group.

Friction Management - Trackside

The most common installation service is provided on our Friction Management product lines.

New trackside lubricators or friction management systems are in many cases supplied as a fully installed solution ensuring the customer’s requirements are met in full every time.

Even when providing fully installed solutions our Field Service engineers take time to train our customer’s teams in the correct procedures and processes thus ensuring the ongoing maintenance can be performed to the highest standards.

Often when a customer decides to order equipment without an installation service our Field Service Engineers will accompany the chosen installation team on the first install to ensure the procedures & processes are followed in full.

Friction Management – Onboard

When designing bespoke solutions it is essential that they are followed all the way through to ensure compliance with customer’s requirements.

L.B. Foster Rail Technologies’ onboard solid stick applications are individually designed and one of the most crucial processes is the first off installation. As a result L.B. Foster Rail Technologies’ qualified engineers provide this service on all new applications and can also provide a full fleet fit service if required.

Track Components

Track component installation primarily centre around L.B. Foster Rail Technologies’ insulated joint product lines. Customers have benefited from L.B.

From accurately drilling tight tolerance holes in the rail to the correct torque settings during the initial install and the first maintenance visit L.B. Foster Rail Technologies provide the customer with a complete on-site service.

Many of our glued or bonded joint export projects have been supported locally with services ranging from first off install and training to establishing a complete workshop assembly facility for our clients.
