Fornells’ Range includes two distinct rail-profile designs that differ both by their internal structure, linear mass and their rail-to-rail joiner systems.
By mixing and matching products from these designs, our engineers can maximise safety and optimise value as a function of basic criteria:
Type of track or arena (racing, training, jumping)
Frequency and intensity of track use
Surroundings: people and crowds; trees and bushes and other natural obstacles
Reinforced Safety Rail
The only running-rail available that incorporates an internally ribbed structure combined with a rail-to-rail joiner that’s as strong as the rail itself. These features ensure the highest safety-level in case of a collision on the rail by horse or jockey. During a high-speed impact, this rail bends inwards and then pushes back due to the elasticity of the PVC material, the high linear-mass value and the internally-ribbed profile. Together with strong rail-to-rail joiners, this system minimises the risk of the rail breaking open on impact.
Combined with the patented Collapsible Post, this system offers jockeys the highest-level of safety available for a racetrack running rail.
Preferred usage: high-speed danger areas, such as on the inner racetrack boundary, home-straights, final bends, narrow tracks. Many Group 1 racecourses choose this rail.
New: this rail is now available in an HD+ version that offers an even higher anti-UV resistance for both standard white rail as well as a range of colours available to personalise your racecourse.
Standard Safety Rail
The standard safety rail is a hollow PVC profile with end-in-end joiners. With a medium linear mass and a fast snap-fixing between the rail and posts, it is quick to install and easily moveable. It offers the best value.
Preferred usage: racetrack boundaries, mobile rails, outer boundaries, walkways, training tracks and gallops.
