Areas of application for heavy-duty rails in the rail transport industry
Telescopic rails are very versatile in the railway industry. Their high load capacity and solid construction ensure that they meet all requirements. In addition to corrosion protection, increasing the puncture resistance also plays an important part. Both are achieved by our special surface treatments.

Robust telescopic slides for the railway industry
Many people today are on the road with their cars. In rural locations, people often have no other way of getting from A to B. The situation in smaller and larger cities is somewhat different. In addition to normal road traffic, there is also rail traffic. With the help of trams and underground trains, people living in cities reach are able to their destination.
The annoying search for a parking space is no longer necessary, and this transport method is even more environmentally friendly. The train is available for long distances. All these vehicles, which travel on rails, are used every day. Thousands of people use trains, trams and subways every day to get to work or go to on vacation.
The weight that these vehicles are exposed to are correspondingly high
All materials used in the railway industry have to be particularly strong and meet high demands. Passenger safety must always be guaranteed. The vehicles are exposed to vibrations and shocks every day. Moisture also plays a major role. In the railway industry there are many areas of application for heavy-duty rails and telescopic rails.
A heavy-duty extension used in this area must above all meet all the demands of the everyday use. However, there are also some specific requirements that the railway industry places on telescopic rails. Heavy-duty extension and telescopic slides must always function optimally even under difficult conditions. They must be easy to use, but also very reliable. Another very important point is that the extension always fits perfectly into the space provided. Heavy-duty extensions are available as partial extensions, but also as full-extension and over-extensions.
When selecting the parts which are used in the railway industry, reliability is of primary importance, but their durability also plays a major role. The reliability ensures that the safety of the passengers in the train, tram and underground can be guaranteed. It is also very important when it comes to extreme operating conditions, vibration loads, strong temperature and weather fluctuations as well as the very long and particularly intensive use of the parts.
Especially for transport companies, it is very important to use particularly reliable and robust parts that have a long lifespan. At the same time, these parts should require very little maintenance and low maintenance costs. If these parts come into contact with moisture, dust or other contaminants, they must still function flawlessly.
Telescopic rails with partial extension, full extension or over extension can withstand loads of up to 2000 kilograms and more. The heavy loads that occur in daily use are no problem. Despite these high loads, telescopic rails always function smoothly and without loss of any stability.
