As part of a sweeping effort to address the nation’s infrastructure needs, President Biden signed into law a $1.2 trillion infrastructure package. Amongst other expenditures in the bill, it allocates $550 billion to build and repair infrastructure in the country for the next five years.
The Fabreeka Impact
Are you looking for a reliable solution that will provide a smooth and safe riding experience for passengers aboard a railroad car? Look no further than Fabreeka®. Our line of railroad car isolation products minimizes the transmission of vibrations that would otherwise travel throughout the body of a railroad car and disturb passengers.
During the early 1930s, the idea for Fabreeka pads was conceived when Fabreeka Sales Manager William P. Brennan was asked by a friend of his in the railroad industry whether Fabreeka belting could reduce noise in passenger cars. Due to the noise generated by the steel wheels rolling on the steel rail, isolation was needed so passengers inside of the cars would not be bothered by the noise.
Since the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, railroad tracks have revolutionized human expansion, developing an interconnected network for people and valuable goods to travel. From the expansion to new frontiers to the development of underground metros that connected major cities, the railroad industry reshaped how mankind moved from one place to another and traded goods to markets.
