We have to admit that there are not many people who are interested in products such as track safety systems and barrier solutions and this is all the more important that those who concern themselves with them also have a good expertise – these products protect lives after all.
Rawie has been a byword for rail safety for more than 100 years. We gained a reputation in 1909/10 with the invention of the sliding friction buffer stop by Franz Rawie. He therefore succeeded in laying a milestone in the history of rail safety. In 1951, the Deutsche Bundesbahn stipulated that Rawie friction buffer stops were to be installed as a track closure.
It has therefore always been our motivation to be ahead of the times with the development or further development of track safety systems. We are proud that we are still able to do justice to this reputation: as a global market leader, we are represented in almost all of the countries in the world and also have more than 50 patents.
We repeatedly set new standards with the performances of our engineers and thereby meet all German, European and often global specifications – this often being years before these are developed. The use of long-standing experts, high quality materials and a careful Quality Management, results in products that have often been in use for 30 years and more. As far as we are concerned, German Engineering means that we have the specialist competence that is required for the development of individual solutions that meet the individual needs of the customers and thereby adhere to consistent standards. This is why the certification of our Quality Management system pursuant to EN ISO 9001 has been a matter of course for many years.
TRUST IS A GOOD THING BUT CONTROL IS A BETTER ONE.
The fact that our customers and we believe in the quality of our products is one thing but this is not enough for us. We use comprehensive and certified testing procedures that are conducted by our own and independent testers in order to convince ourselves that the products function perfectly and that they are of a perfect quality. This is the only reason why the German Federal Railway Authority has approved our friction buffer stops. You shall find additional certificates in our Mediathek.
