Concrete crane track sleepers are heavier than wooden or plastic sleepers and are therefore ideally suited for vehicles with heavier wheel loads. An additional advantage of concrete is its long service life of at least 40 years and low maintenance costs.
Because of its long life span, a concrete sleeper is more environmentally friendly than a wooden sleeper. Concrete also absorbs C02 during its lifetime, which ensures a low C02 footprint. Because of the production method of a concrete crossbeam, dimensional stability (within the set tolerances) is guaranteed.
