Plastics for Traffic Engineering & Infrastructure

Plastics for transport engineering and infrastructure

An efficient transport infrastructure is the foundation for the success of our economy and for our individual mobility. Only through the intelligent planning of transport routes and infrastructure projects can goods and people reach their destination quickly and reliably. Plastics play an important role here. Few other materials are capable of meeting the various requirements so flexibly. From traffic signals to cable ducts, our materials help designers develop efficient transport technology.

Your advantages

  • Long service life: resistant to UV radiation and weathering
  • High mechanical strength
  • Low weight
  • Electrically insulating
  • High-quality appearance

Typical areas of application

  • Roadworks
  • Traffic signals
  • Rail ways

Product Examples

Rear panels for traffic lights

Traffic light rear panels made of our Durostone® profiles are very light and at the same time electrically insulating. Painted in black matt, they offer a visually attractive appearance.

Cable ducts

When tracks are laid down on railway lines, particular requirements are made of the technology. Engineers frequently have to deal with topographically difficult terrain where there is no way round. Laying cables should not be a problem even under such circumstances. Properly laid cables are vital for the smooth transmission of energy and data. Robust ducts made of our Durostone® profiles protect the cables.

Arange Technical Advice

The performance and service life of materials for use in transport engineering is influenced by many factors. These criteria need to be considered in order to make the right choice. Examples:

  • Mechanical loading
  • Thermal loading
  • External influences such as UV radiation and weathering
  • Design requirements
  • Dimensions and tolerances
