Railroad track gauge bars are also called rail gauge bars. As the name suggests, the gauge rod is a rod specially designed to connect two rails at the bottom of the rail to protect the rail from tilting and keep the rail within a certain rail gauge.
How does the rail gauge rod work?
Relying on the tension of the rail tie rod to prevent the rails from opening, effectively ensure driving safety. It is a portable, widely used in railway line construction and maintenance.

Types of Railroad track gauge bars:
Rail gauge rods can be divided into non-insulated gauge rods and insulated gauge rods. Both types of gauge rods include single-ended gauge rods and double-ended gauge rods.
1. Non-insulated gauge rod
The single-ended gauge rod has a hook on one end and a single claw with a nut and a spring lock washer on the other end.
The double-end gauge rod has two jaws, two nuts and two washers at both ends of the rod.
2. Insulated gauge rod
Insulated gauge rods can be used on railway tracks with signals or wherever electrical insulation is required.
A pair or iron claws at both ends of the double-ended gauge rod clamp the rail base to fix the rail for measurement and keep the rail upright to resist wheel pressure.
