Nolan’s Switch Point Protector Series

SPP-flyerNolan’s switch-point protectors increase the service life of switch points by absorbing the impact of passing rail car wheels. Designed to bolt securely to the inside straight main rail that leads to the switch, the protector momentarily deflects the wheel flange so it misses the tip of the switch point.


  • Reversible — when worn down on one side, it can be flipped around and remounted, doubling its service life.
  • Made from manganese steel, the switch-point protector actually gets stronger with each deflection.
