A track construction work tent for welding work at the track superstructure has to meet high requirements in order to obtain approval from railway companies. Hence, heat-resistant material was used – as is for all track construction work tents marked with "R", the Trotec "Rail" attribute: The 300 KE-R comes equipped with a tent roof that is flame-retardant to a temperature of 500 degrees Celsius. The dimensions of 300 cm length x 300 cm width and the extra high ceiling height of 215 cm ensure comfortable working for several persons.
Weather protection due to welded processing and concealed zip fasteners
The track construction work tent features welded processing, hence providing adequate protection against wind, rain and the cold. Smart rain protection strips on all zip fasteners prevent the ingress of water. In fine weather the front and rear walls can be folded up completely – enabled by three concealed zip fasteners each.
Another advantage with regard to safety: For the 300 KE-R to be recognized in the twilight or dark it is equipped with reflective strips.
Fastening on the track in a matter of seconds
For the purpose of fastening, Trotec has developed an innovative solution: It is screwed to the rail and secures the track construction work tent by use of tensioning ropes. A substantial advantage as compared to other fastening methods using rods underneath the track and similar time-consuming solutions! After having fastened the rail fixation, the track construction work tent can immediately be erected as a quick-to-pitch tent. The highlight being the special inner frame system made of fibreglass, which is light and robust at once. This way, the welding tent remains mobile when pitched and can be easily be relocated by four persons using the convenient carry handles.
Moreover: Storm kit, special equipment and different sizes
In addition to the 300 KE-R the Trotec range of products in the category "track construction work tents" also features smaller sizes. Further available are special designs e.g. in the railway company's corporate design or with additional telescopic rods as a storm tent equipment or else with additional ventilation openings.
