The size of container cranes has more than doubled since the first container cranes were built in the late 1950s. Over the years, Ship-to-Shore cranes (STS) have been updated and upgraded with twin-lifting capacities and increased productivity requirements resulting in higher duty cycles, trolley speeds and accelerating & breaking forces.
This has led to higher expectations of the trolley rail systems.
Gantrex’ range of specific products and services for STS crane trolleys are engineered to meet the market demand for more reliability tailored to the larger and faster cranes used to quickly load/unload Ultra Large Container Vessels (ULCVs).

Gantrex’ RailLok™ design ensures full and tight contact between the upper component of the clip and rail foot. Coupled with the self-locking wedge, it keeps the tightened clip bolts in tension.
The RailLok™ pad’s specific grooves and edge design prevents damage or movement of the pads resultant from rail twisting and the bow wave effect, almost completely eliminating the risk of premature pad weakening ensuing from dirt ingress.
