Switch Point Protectors

Nolan's switch point protector
  • Increases the service life of switch points by absorbing the impact of passing rail car wheels
  • Bolts securely to the inside straight main rail that leads to the switch
  • Momentarily deflects the wheel flange so it misses the tip of the switch point
  • Made from manganese steel, the SPP gets stronger with each deflection
  • Reversible — when worn down on one side, it can be flipped around and remounted, doubling its service life
  • SPP set includes manganese steel face plate and steel shim, steel back-up plate, two track bolts, two nuts and two spring washers.

NOTE: Review the installation instructions that accompany each switch point protector.
