Cable capturing sleeper

Scope of use

The PTH can be used in the track's ballast bedding, at a rail sleeper spacing of 60 cm centre-to-centre (high quantity) or 75cm (standard quantity). At points the PTH can be fitted on the sleepers of the points.

Improvements and modification

The new type PTH11/12 has a net weight of 280 kg, the PTH21/22 weighs 290 kg. The old type PTH1/2 has a net weight of 400 kg. In addition, contrary to their predecessors, these new types can be driven over if the hollow space for the feed-through cables is not closed yet in the longitudinal direction of the sleeper. The new types also have light covers which can easily be installed by one person.
