Steel Reinforced Crane Rail Pad

Our crane rail pad is manufactured from wear resistant synthetic elastomer which is unaffected by oil, grease, ozone and exposure to ultraviolet light.  The pad incorporates a bonded steel strip which is encapsulated in the synthetic elastomer.  This pad is for heavy duty crane applications. For the best results we recommend the use of cam adjustable rail clips in conjunction with the crane rail pad.

Rail Pad

  • Pad thickness: 9/32"
  • Shore hardness: 75 durometer plus or minus 5
  • Shore hardness after ageing: 75 durometer plus or minus 5
  • Temperature range: -40° F to +212° F
  • Ultimate tensile strength: 2500 psi
  • Rebound resilience: 30%
  • Elongation: 250%
  • Permanent set: 5%
  • Reduce noise and structural vibration
  • Reduces rail wear and fatigue stresses
  • Reduces crane runway maintenance
  • Reduces stress in the runway structure and the crane
  • Totally resistant to water, oil, grease, mildew and fungus
  • Absorbs the uneven contact between the rail and the supporting structure
  • Protects the crane mechanism and increases wheel, bearing, and axle life
  • Eliminates wear grooving of the rail on the runway due to fretting corrosion
  • Distributes the wheel load over a larger surface area, reducing high local bearing stresses
  • Has a high recovery rate to dampen each wheel pass and to resist permanent deformation
  • Available for all rail sizes

*We recommend the use of welded rail joints when using crane rail pad
