Getzner – engineering a quiet futureGetzner Werkstoffe is the leading specialist in the field of vibration isolation and protection. Its solutions are based on the products Sylomer®, Sylodyn®, Sylodamp® and Isotop®, all of which were developed and manufactured at Getzner's own facility. They are used in the rail, construction and industry sectors to reduce vibrations and noise, improve the service life of bedded components and minimise the need for maintenance and repairs on tracks, vehicles, structures and machines. The company was founded in 1969 as a subsidiary of Getzner, Mutter & Cie.
Rolling stock manufacturing
Getzner is an experienced partner to the world’s largest rolling stock manufacturer, with whom the company produces floor coverings for passenger carriages, locomotives and bathrooms, as well as special bearings for air-handling units. This gives rise to a completely new travelling experience: vibrations are reduced to a minimum, which significantly increases the comfort of the journey.
Getzner’s floating floors for rolling stock use the polyurethane material Sylomer® Fire-retardant, which was developed by Getzner and is certified according to EN 45545-2. The Sylomer® Aluminium Vibration Damper provides particularly light and compact vibration protection for carriage floors. It is used where simple screw-mounting is required. Isotop® DZE Railway effectively protects the passenger area from vibrations caused by the air-handling units and other equipment mounted on the roof or under the floor of the rolling stock.
Getzner has also developed a special solution for freight cars to protect sensitive goods: thanks to their combined spring/damper properties, hard-wearing PU mats made from Sylomer® offer optimum protection against shocks and impacts. This means, for example, that cost savings can now be made in the transport of steel coils used in the automotive industry.

Elastic Solutions for Superstructure
The variety and intensity of modern rail traffic means that the availability, comfort and environmental demands on rail systems are growing dynamically. One of the main problems associated with railways are the vibrations transmitted from the track superstructure to the nearby surroundings. These vibrations can often be felt and heard. Another significant problem is the maintenance needs resulting from wear and tear on the materials, due to insufficient elasticity in the track. Highly elastic products and systems for isolating vibrations can lead to substantial reductions in maintenance costs for both the components of the track superstructure and the vehicles that use it.
The products developed by Getzner are perfect for meeting the requirements of all axle loads and speeds. Combined with the specialized services provided by Getzner engineers, the company is able to offer a comprehensive, complete product, which sets the industry standard around the world.
