Exhibiting at TOC Europe, Gantrex has introduced what it claims is a more advanced rail clip for enhancing the rail performance of cranes and structures.
Prior to the clip’s development, the older generation rail lock was not secure enough to handle the vibrations and oscillations which arose from increased wheel loads, faster speeds and higher duty calls.
The brand name ‘RailLok’ is an optimised design which has been engineered to have better contact on railway lines, and does not kick back from the rail.
In comparison to the previous design, it carries faster and more effective installation, has an increased load-capacity while reducing its size, and has an enlarged adjustment range.
Robert Shearsby, senior sales consultant at Gantrex stated: “The rails will last longer in terms of their wear and breakages and will improve productivity for rail networks.”
He added: “The double-wedge design positions us favourably among our competitors because the clip is more advanced and secure for railway services.”
