DESIGN AND PERFORMANCE HIGHLIGHTS

The Met-Track® steel track design is one of high strength and low weight by combining the running track profile with standoff reinforcement to considerably increase span distances. The ‘V’ shaped profile of the running track ensures alignment of the trolleys and end truck but also prevents dirt accumulation inside the tracks.

Machined wheels with crowned tread and precision sealed bearings ensure absolute minimum rolling resistance, providing long operational life.

TRACK FEATURES:
1. Five capacities to choose from 250 lbs (125kg), 500 lbs (250kg), 1000 lbs (250kg), 2000 lbs (1000kg) and 4000 lbs (2000kg).
2. Long spans of up to 30ft (9m) allow systems to be installed with the minimum of supports, maximizing the cell layout
3. Enclosed track bridge cranes are up to three times easier to move than traditional bridge cranes

The Met-Track® pre-engineered modular design allows for easy relocation and/or expansion by simply adding runway sections and/or additional bridges. Splice joints connect the track sections and are complete with vertical and horizontal adjustment screws, facilitating precise alignment of the track sections. Floor mounted cranes can be installed on any normal 6-inch (150mm) reinforced concrete floor. For ceiling mounted cranes it is imperative that you seek professional advice on whether your building structure is capable of withstanding the forces generated by the workstation crane.
