Rail field lighting

Efficient and safe with Kummler+Matter EVT - Safety and urban aesthetics in the rail field area shine with the installations of Kummler+Matter EVT, who can offer rail field lighting from a single source. From planning to assembly and installation.


Lighting for tracks is essential to ensure the safety of railway personnel. With the right lighting, obstacles, vehicles and track workers can be recognised better. This makes working on the tracks, on the vehicles and on the freight containers safer, because sure-footedness and caution are needed when working on the tracks. Due to the various needs on the rail field area, rail field lighting is a complex matter. In addition to the functionality of the lighting systems, lighting design aspects are also very important. People driving by are more aware of the environment when the rail field is illuminated. Lastly, the illumination of the tracks also has an effect on the image of the public area and it enhances urban aesthetics. The specialists at Kummler+Matter EVT offer rail field lighting from a single source: from planning through to assembly and installation.

Kummler+Matter EVT handles planning for the entire project: plans for building, construction, foundation, earthing and lighting, as well as project planning for electrical installations.


Once the location has been determined and the planning finalised, lighting calculations can be carried out.


This is followed by the installation of the supporting structures, be it street lights or yokes, as well as installation of the lighting fixtures. The cables are installed to connect the rail field lighting to the power grid. Kummler+Matter EVT can offer its customers the required special vehicles and, above all, specialised teams. These special units, consisting of security guards and fitters that have been specially trained for work on tracks, are our contribution to ensure safety.


The light points are checked, the system is put into operation and light measurements are carried out.


Kummler+Matter EVT can also take care of the cleaning and replacement of lamps on request. For the lights, Kummler+Matter EVT relies on the latest LED technologies, which fulfil the photometric requirements for rail field lighting.
