Weld On Shoulders

Weld On Shoulders
Designed for use with elastic rail clips, the weld on shoulder fastening allows customers to fabricate rail retaining units on both steel sleepers and steel baseplates.

The shoulders can also be welded on to longer length steel sleeper sections or bearers for use in the fabrication of switch and crossing layouts where vertical rail geometry is employed. The shoulders ability to be welded in the specific position as dictated by the layout design makes it particularly useful and cost effective in this role. 
The shoulder accessories are supplied for specific rail sections with design criteria which ensure that the correct elastic clip toe loading is achieved. Certain shoulders are supplied with milled weld area faces to assist in achieving the necessary weld integrity. 
We can offer Weld-on types to suit elastic style clips 30lb up to 113lb. If you would like a quotation please use our
