The Revolutionary Broom Elements Sweeping the Competition Aside

Nothing Beats the Element of Quality

For 20 years, railway operators across Europe have used the advanced technology and unsurpassed durability of Derby Rubber’s unique broom elements to help ensure safety and efficiency across their rail networks.

Derby has grown to become the world leader in designing and manufacturing high-grade ballast regulator broom elements capable of delivering superior performance in some of the world’s most extreme climate environments.

Its flagship Ballastick® one-piece broom elements are available in both hollow and solid form, each with their own unique characteristics and qualities, outperforming competitors in reliability, durability and convenience.

Thick and Clever

Derby Rubber’s hollow shafts deliver more than three times the effective lifespan of their cheaper rivals, thanks to the ingenious thickened, yet still hollow, hard-wearing rubber tip. This avoids the need for a glued-in plug found in lower-quality broom elements that frequently become dislodged and lead to inefficient sweeping, damaged elements and increased change-outs, often after as little as 60 kilometres.

In contrast, the hollow-form Ballastick® broom element has been shown to maintain its effectiveness and integrity even in excess of 160 kilometres of use – more than three times the capacity of imitation brands!

Solid Performance

Derby’s Solid Ballastick® option is easily fixed in place with a C3 clamp to allow for quick changeovers and progressive adjustment – and featuring a distinctive flared clamp-tip to reduce ‘flex fatigue’ – the Solid Ballastick®’s distinctive design adds extra mass to the broom element’s wear tip, thereby creating greater momentum, sweeping efficiency and wear life.

With the advantage of Derby Rubber’s state-of-the-art compound engineering, the solid-form Ballastick® element regularly achieves a 50% longer wear life than conventional broom elements.

Greater Efficiencies Mean Greater Savings

When comparing performance, durability, lifespan and ease of use, it’s easy to see why leading rail track operators around the world prefer Derby Rubber’s advanced Hollow and Solid Ballastick® broom elements.

Both versions in the Ballastick® range easily surpass the durability, effectiveness and efficiency of ‘cheaper’ alternatives.
