Sicut’s Composite S&C Bearers are helping customers significantly extend the life of key rail infrastructure assets, delivering improved performance and value.   Sicut Composite S&C Bearers deliver the many advantages of timber bearers, flexibility, adaptability, lower track stiffness, noise and vibration reduction and wear resistance while not degrading rapidly with time.  Sicut Composite S&C Bearers have been installed in wide a range of projects in plain line, industrial, metro and light rail applications, including in some of the busiest public transport locations in Europe.

Sicut Composite S&C Bearers are a similar weight to the timber they replace and can be handled with the same equipment and training.    By utilising a jointing system developed with one of Sicut’s customers, Sicut Composite S&C Bearers can also be joined together to create longer lengths, allowing customers to replace very long bearers more quickly and efficiently, reducing both cost and health and safety risks.
