  • HP: reduce grinding frequency and boost rail life

    HP335 is the ideal solution for areas where rolling contact fatigue and wear are key issues.

    Previously known as HPrail®, it is designed for curved track and other high duty areas, where it is proven to improve wear resistance, cut life cycle costs, reduce grinding frequency and extend rail life.

  • Discover the facts about heat-treated rail

    We are the chosen supplier of highly wear-resistant heat-treated rail for the prestigious Crossrail project beneath the heart of London. 

    Our infographic explains the benefits of heat-treated rail and what makes ours unique.

Products

 

We offer a wide range of steel rail products for global railway applications, combined with vast experience of supplying rail worldwide.

Our innovations continue to deliver longer in-service product life, reducing maintenance and renewal costs for our customers.

We offer the following rail product families:

Flat bottom 'Vignole' rail

Tata Steel supplies flat bottom 'Vignole' rails for mainline applications. These are available in a wide range of steel grades to suit your specific track environment.

Grooved rail

Tata Steel supplies grooved rails for urban applications. These are also available in a premium grade to address excessive degradation.

Special rails

Our range of special rails includes asymmetric switch and crossing rails, check rails, electrical conductor rails, and customer and application-specific rail profiles such as piste and bullhead rails.

Silent rail systems

Tata Steel has developed the innovative SilentTrack® noise reduction rail system, which significantly reduces noise generated by railway traffic.

Coated rail systems

Coated rail systems from Tata Steel are designed for use in aggressive corrosion-prone environments such as coastal areas, wet tunnels, level crossings and sabkhas. They greatly enhance the lifespan of the rail.

Crane rail

Tata Steel supplies a range of special crane rail profiles for overhead gantries and floor-mounted cranes.
