Fishplates in Stock

Most steel manufacturing countries have produced sections to their own standards, which means there are a huge variety of rail shapes and sizes that customers can use. We can provide most of these rail sections, depending on quantity. However, industrial railways mostly standardise on a few universal sections and we therefore commonly stock the above rail sections.

Technical Drawings

We can provide technical specifications for fishplates we supply, with some examples below which you can download. We have a complete set of technical drawings which we can supply to our customers.

Rails are made to different standards. Choosing a standard depends on what the rail is being used for, but generally the higher the standard the more costly the rail. We can supply a complete range of international rail and crane rail sections in sizes from 6Kg/m up to 150Kg/m.
