Rail Pads

PATENTED PADS, COVERING ALL APPLICATIONS

Combined with the GANTREX® clips, GANTREX® patented pads are at the core of soft-mount crane rail solutions and prove essential to reduce shocks and vibrations in rail systems.

Our pad range covers all rail profiles and includes continuous and discontinuous pads. Placed between the rail and its support, the pad ensures the load distribution over a larger surface, the elimination of load concentrations and ensuing fatigue stresses, the centering of loads on the supporting element, the absorption of uneven contact surfaces between rail and support, and the reduction of wear of the rail and its support.

Key features

  • All rail profiles covered
  • Wider load distribution
  • Wear reduction of the rail and its support
  • Improved stress distribution under the rail​
  • Eliminates stress concentrations and point loads on the sole plates​
  • Distributes the loads under the center line of the rail

RAILLOK™ INNOVATION

The patented RailLok™ series of continuous pads (MK9) is specifically designed to perform integrally with the RailLok™ clips. The design eliminates the ingress of dirt and water between the rail and its support, minimizes the effect of crane oscillation and rail twisting, and improves the compression created by the “nose” of the clip. The integrated steel reinforcement ensures lateral creep of the pad is eliminated under standard operating conditions​.

The Gantrex RailLok Pad patent is filed under the following numbers across the world: US9435082B2, EP2794994B1, CN103987896B

As a truly global company, we have several pad production sites across the world, from EU origin production to local North-American production. Whatever you need – we can accommodate for all local specifics.
