STS Cranes

Innovation driving tomorrow’s ports

The past 25 years saw an increase in the size of container ships, which almost tripled to today’s 20 000 TEU capacity. Terminals must adapt the size of cranes to ships to offer productive, cost-effective, higher equipment with longer booms.
Today’s STS cranes are more susceptible to vibration and oscillation, generating a need for increased stability for rail supports in runways. 

In-House R&D

Incorporating the latest innovation of its in-house R&D department, GANTREX’ products and services for STS crane runways respond to issues stemming from the new generation of STS cranes.


  • Additional wedge (Gantrex’s self-contact design patent with inclined bolt)
  • Square shank base bolts
  • High lateral resistance capacity
  • Compact design 


  • Double crown pad shape
  • Redesigned edge

Working hand-in-hand with civil engineers and crane manufacturers, Gantrex provides a comprehensive range of products, designs, supplies and installations for crane rails.

Easy to install

  • Increased lateral adjustment: higher precision of installation;
  • Thicker clip walls prevent welding from entering;
  • Easy-access housing for cleaning operations and bolt insertion;
  • Square shank base bolt ensuring foolproof positioning and tightening with impact wrench.

Rail system stability

  • 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.
Gantrex’ tailor-made range of products and services is available through more than 300 genuine Gantrex crane rail specialists worldwide, ready to be on track, with you.
