Crane track on ballast bed

The use of a ballast bed ensures stability, dampens vibrations and drains away excess rainwater. When the construction is fully filled, the sleepers can be aligned in height. A hydraulic jack is used to level the rail in the correct position. With the tamping machine especially designed by Bemo Rail, the ballast is compacted under each sleeper.

The advantages of this system are:

  • Regular settling of the subsoil can easily be counteracted.
  • By means of tamping and regular maintenance the ballast system can easily be brought back to the required tolerances.
  • Relatively low investment costs compared to the installation of foundations for regular constructions on concrete.

Crane track on concrete sleepers

Bemo Rail has its own concrete sleeper, especially for crane rail constructions with high wheel loads. The rail is mounted on a sleeper with a strong spring clamp and an elastic sole plate. The sleeper can be installed very precisely in a gravel bed, on sand-cement stabilisation or in repak. If necessary, the entire rail construction can be applied in combination with surfacing (asphalt, concrete sheeting or paving). It is important that the subsoil is well compacted.

Crane track on wooden sleepers

In addition to concrete sleepers, Bemo Rail uses hardwood sleepers with a supporting plate and rail fastening material. Furthermore, it is applied in the same way as the concrete sleeper.

Crane track on synthetic sleepers

Synthetic crane track sleepers are made of recycled plastic, a strong product with a long life span of about 50 years. For many years, plastic has been used worldwide for bridges, and it is also used for switches, railway tracks, subways, GVB companies and in industrial applications. The advantage is the high production capacity, the product is strong, durable, lightweight, easy and quick to assemble and fully recyclable.

Industrial track

Rails op dwarsliggers

Like crane tracks, industrial track can be mounted on various types of concrete, wooden or plastic track girders. The track rails on the sleepers can be used at factory sites and private rail connections.
