Weld on Shoulder

Weld-on types: elastic clips: 30lb – 113lb rail sections

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. Their ability to be welded in the specific position as dictated by the layout design is particularly useful.

Length of rail
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.

Clip Toe Loading and Integrity
