Whether it’s cranes traveling on rail or machinery moving on specialty tracks, our GANTREX® clips, combined with GANTREX® pads, constitute the essence of the industry-proven soft rail fixing system.
First, let’s set the basics: what is a rail clip?
Component used to attach the rail to the track supporting structure. Rail clips are typically made of metal and are designed to securely hold the rail laterally, while also allowing for some longitudinal movement and expansion due to temperature change and other factors.
Our clips are suited for every application that requires fixing a rail track:
- All types of industrial overhead cranes and transfer cars systems
- STS and automated portal cranes, stacker-reclaimers
- Loaders and unloaders for bulk material handling
- Automated stacker cranes for warehouse industry
- Special heavy load applications such as retractable roofs and rocket movers
Our GANTREX® patented clips are at the core of our soft-mount crane rail solutions and can fit just about every rail profile available worldwide. Our 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.
Designed as stress resistant, their mechanical performances have been certified and tested by worldwide renowned laboratories for the specialized Rail Tracks Construction.
