93.100   Construction of railways

Scope

This European Standard is applicable to fastening systems for use in attaching rails to the uppermost surface of concrete or asphalt slabs and for embedded rails in non-ballasted tracks in categories A - E (EN 13481-1, clause 3.1) which have maximum axle loads and minimum curve radii in accordance with table 1.

NOTE The maximum axle load for categories A and B does not apply to maintenance vehicles
The requirements apply to the following:
a) fastening systems which act on the foot and/or web of the rail including direct fastening systems and systems which incorporate a baseplate;

b) fastening systems which incorporate concrete elements which each have not more than one supporting element per rail;

c) adhesive and mechanical fastening systems for embedded rail excluding rail cast into road pavements.

In the case of (b) the concrete element is considered to be part of the fastening system. If the system includes concrete elements which each have more than one supporting location per rail, those concrete elements are considered to be part of the slab and not part of the fastening system.

This standard is only applicable to fastening systems for rail sections in EN 13674-1 and EN 13674-4; it is not applicable to special fastening systems for use at bolted joints.

This standard is for type approval of a complete fastening assembly only.
