Installation of Crane Rail Systems

There are various Crane Rail Systems and applications, with individual design and installation constraints. However these applications vary, they all share one similarity, that all applications must be installed correctly and accurately to ensure maximum uninterrupted service life.

How can this be achieved?

Rules to apply for success when installing Crane Rail Systems include:

  • Correct identification of the crane capacity and service conditions
  • Establishment of all details of rail track, supporting structure and any particular site requirements, which may affect the design
  • Correct selection of the rail section
  • Identification of the most appropriate fixing method
  • Agreement on installation tolerances, which should be as a minimum to industry standards such as BS466 appendix F or FEM 9.831
  • Selection of the right engineers and site management.
