Need a second opinion or an expert to take a look at your rail system? Gantrex has experienced technical personnel and qualified inspectors for the execution of an on site visual inspection that will check the visible state of pads, clips, rails, plates and the supporting structure (concrete or steel ) of your crane rail system and provide you with a written report outlining track condition and any maintenance requirements.
SURVEY & INSPECTIONS
The scope of our offering includes the runway survey as well as the analysis and presentation of the measurement data obtained on site. Using the data collected, we are able to develop individually tailored corrective solutions for you. This includes everything from a local repair to the complete refurbishment of the crane runway:
- Corrective Solution
It is extremely important to ensure the crane runway is within operating tolerances. Gantrex seasoned surveyors can undertake the geometrical measurements on some track components (rail, plates), the surrounding supporting structure (beams and columns if present) and crane wheels. This is necessary in order to detect geometrical defects, unusual tolerances. Gantrex experienced technical personnel will analyze the data and provide you with an easy to read report and maintenance recommendations.
Advanced Technical Survey
In order to understand the problem it is good to have the full picture. Gantrex has specific technical expertise to provide advanced inspections in order to measure particular technical features of the track and crane behaviors. These may include measurements for applied stress or the presence of fractures in the rail. Our technical personnel can analyze the data and provide with a final report identifying the core issues and providing you with actionable items and solutions.

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…

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.
