Pressed Steel Baseplates

We've developed pressing tools to manufacture hot-pressed steel baseplates which take most types of European rail sections, and a wide other widely used rails. You can find examples of our baseplates on this page which can be made in a range of widths with various hole configurations.

Rail sections 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.


Rails can be provided in lengths to suit the project from 6m up to 18m. Our rail in stock is generally in lengths of 20 ,30 or 40 ft. We can also provide technical specifications, with some examples below.
