Rail Clips

Patented Solution

Combined with the GANTREX® pads, GANTREX® patented clips are at the core of the soft-mount crane rail solutions and can fit just about every rail profile available worldwide. Clips maintain rails in position via a mechanical lock and simultaneously accept the real rail movements through a soft synthetic elastomer nose, vulcanize-bonded to the clips designed to accommodate the forces applied to rails by cranes. Lateral adjustment facilitates the installation and allows for further corrections to the track geometry throughout its life.

Key features

  • Fit the largest selection of rail worldwide
  • Includes Rubber Nose Clips to eliminate uplift forces
  • Laterally Adjustable Clips to allow for proper alignment

RAILLOK™ INNOVATIVE DESIGN

Through the introduction of our patented RailLok™ clips and pads, Gantrex has literally rewritten the state of the art. This technology ensures active-contact between the clip and rail.  With this patented feature of the Active Contact the use of impact drills is possible as the bolt tilts during torquing to push the clip against the toe  of the rail​, reducing installation time. The patented technology increases the clips capacity to address ever growing crane loads and provides a narrower design allowing operational and financial savings.

RailLok clips ensure the clips are installed properly against the toe  of the rail​ and improve the dynamic load transfer to minimize clips backing off​.

The Gantrex RailLok Clip patent is filed under the following numbers across the world: US8205803B2, EP2173947B1, CN101720371B

As a truly global company, we have several clip production sites across the world, from EU origin production to local US production where we are producing a range of “Made in America” clips. Whatever you need – we can accommodate for all local specifics.

RailLok™ clips are available in weldable and boltable versions for different fixing supports. The mechanical performances of the stress resistant clips were certified and tested by worldwide renowned laboratories for the specialized Rail Tracks Construction.

Weldable Clip
Boltable Clip

Weldable Clip

The welded clip comprises of two parts, the welded lower and adjustable upper part.  The lower part is welded to the steel support and the upper part is fixed to the lower part via captive bolt(s).  The self-locking wedge design of the clips keeps the clip bolts in tension.

Weldable RailLok™ clips feature the patented additional wedge via inclined bolt which ensures that lateral contact with the rail foot is maintained during installation. Moreover they allow the use of impact wrenches which permits faster and easier installation.

Weldable clips are available in different sizes and capacities to suit different rail profiles and wheel loads.  The correct clip selection not only depends on those dimensional and mechanical considerations but also on installation contingencies. We therefore recommend you contacting us to discuss YOUR requirements.

Boltable Clip

The RailLok boltable clip consists of two interacting elements which allow easy lateral rail adjustment.  The clip is fixed to the rail by means of bolt(s) inserted through the holes made in the steel support.

Boltable RailLok™ clips feature the patented active-contact design which ensures that lateral contact with the rail foot is maintained during installation. They also allow the use of impact wrenches which permit faster and easier installations.

Boltable clips are available in different sizes and capacities to suit different rail profiles and wheel loads.  The correct clip and bolt selection not only depends on those dimensional and mechanical considerations but also on installation contingencies. We therefore recommend you contacting us to discuss YOUR requirements.
