Rail brakes, suitable for medium forces from 130 to 500 kN (securing cranes against the wind force) work pressing down on the top of rail by disk springs. Brakes are hydraulically released. Usual parking utilisation requires a few closing/opening cycles per day. They are usually installed in the middle of crane gantry travel (One or two per crane corner).

Operating Restrictions

Brake shoes of our rail brakes have been designed to work on common market rails whose hardness is between 200 and 270 HB (= 700 to 900 N/mmВ). The certification of TUV are referred to above given values of rail hardness.
