For the first time the bamboo composite sleeper (BCS) is assembled in a track.
In November 2021 the company Dragonwood Rail is born with the proud owners, Lars, Jörg and Thomas.
The BCS has successfully finished testing at the renowned TU München premises and is now being certified for European use.
To make sure we use only the best materials and deliver the sustainable quality we need, we are glad to be FSC certified now.
The TU in Munich is staring to test our BCS. They will perform pull out tests for the bolts, 3 million load cycles with inclined load, 5 million load cycles with straight load and several stiffness tests. Also the reaction to heat and cold is being investigated.
In February the first Bamboo Composite Sleepers arrived in Europe! They will be tested and used for the certifying process.
