Rail Support

Contact us for Crane rail support

Crane rails are generally not laid directly on concrete floors. This is because the concrete cannot support the rail very well, so it is necessary to lay the steel soleplates as the direct bearing surface of the rail. There are also some rails that can be laid directly on H-beam or channel steel. We call it to rail support.
GloryRail has an independent rail support processing workshop. The raw materials are uniformly purchased with high-quality plates, and laser cutting and drilling are used to ensure the accurate size of the soleplates. For the welded rail clips solution, we can directly weld the clip base plate on the steel soleplates and can galvanize the whole, and paint it for corrosion protection according to the needs of customers. In this way, the customer only needs to transport the processed steel support plate to the construction site for laying.

continuous soleplates rail support


Continuous soleplates are used to carry heavy lifting rails and are fixed with bolted rail clamps or welded rail clamps.
In general, we use more welded rail clips and continuous steel soleplates to carry heavy cranes. The steel plate uses carbon steel plates over 20MM. The rail clips’ baseplates should be welded to the steel soleplates before galvanizing, so as to have a good welding interface and achieve a better anti-corrosion effect. There are fixed threaded holes and leveling bolt holes on the soleplates, which are connected and leveled with the on-site concrete base


Lighter lifting equipment can use individual soleplates. Compared with the continuous soleplates, individual soleplates saves more materials, and at the same time, the construction amount is small and the installation is convenient.
The individual soleplates have holes for connecting with the anchor bolts, and holes for installing the bolted rail clips. In some light applications, the rail clips and the anchor bolts can be directly connected.
