Fastening Systems

Victor

The Victor system was designed and developed in the USA to perform well in excess of AREMA specifications for wooden tie applications.

This innovative system combines the durability of an AREMA tie plate with the benefits of Pandrol’s resilient fastening.

The flat tie plate provides the maximum bearing area, while the use of Pandrol’s fastenings provides all of the advantages of resilient fastenings – resisting rail creep, prevention of rail rollover and reduced maintenance.

Technical Features

  • Maximum plate bearing area with an asymmetric design
  • 37% greater bearing area than existing tie plates with resilient fastenings, which results in a significant reduction in plate cutting
  • Meets AREMA 30 for shoulder pull out resistance
  • Available for use with Pandrol e-clip
  • Compatible with composite ties - Pandrol are the exclusive US distributor of Sicut ties

Advantages

  • Significant reduction in gauge widening under load
  • Provides all of the advantages of resilient fastenings including resisting rail creep, prevention of rail rollover and reduced maintenance
  • Plates rolled to AREMA material specifications
