GANTREX TECHNICAL SNIPPETS: PADS IMPROVEMENTS

Gantrex carried out an in-depth analysis on the causes of pad failures on large STS ground tracks and overhead applications and we found out that rail rocking, and increased dynamic loadsing and the ingress of dirt and water under the pad was were tearing the pad apart. It took us a couple of years of extensive R&D to produce a solution and introduce the patented Gantrex RailLok pad to the Market! That is why our Gantrex RailLok™ Pads were improved,…

It is important to select the right clip for your application to ensure the clip can transfer all the lateral forces that are applied on it. It is even more important to accurately select the right clip upper component and nose height combination to mitigate the effects of the Bow-Wave while applying the correct force on the pad to secure it in place and to properly compress the edge seals.

Using Gantrex patented pads underneath a crane rail delivers real performance benefits There’s lots of reasons to use a Gantrex pad under the crane rail. For example, if the rail sits directly on the steel plate you’ll have a lot of high stress concentration and high stress point contacts between the steel and the rail. By inserting a rubber layer in-between the rail and the steel surface, you create a much better distribution of forces which in turn leads to…

Why did Gantrex invent the Soft Mounting Solution ?

With the introduction of soft mounted rails in the steel sector in the 1970s, Gantrex took the lead in updating rail fastening techniques. At the time, steel-on-steel clamps or J-bolts were employed to fasten rails directly to the steel girders, placing the girders under excessive strain and accelerating their deterioration.
