GFRP rebars are non ferrous and are electromagnetically inert.
They are made from the same materials as high voltage polymer insulators.
GFRP rebars do not cause current build up in reinforced concrete near electromagnetic fields.
The rebars are specied and used in prefabricated reinforced concrete rail modules that have integrated detection systems, like the detection systems of Siemens Rail Automation division.
These prefabricated reinforced concrete elements contain the maximum amount of constituents( like the rails, slab, traffic sensors, road paving/covering, etc). The system has been designed to minimise installation time and the quality of the rail system is guaranteed.
These rail elements incorporate the GFRP rebars, as main reinforcement.
The rebars come in different diameters ( from 6 mm to 32 mm).
