Pandrol’s products and technical expertise has shaped all of the major heavy haul railways in the world with a track record covering more than 4 decades and extending across all continents.
As Pandrol has developed its product range and introduced new technologies it has applied those technologies to the requirements of heavy haul. Today we have a full range of products for axle loads up to 40 Tonnes for operating railways and we even have some special applications for crane rails for up to 50 Tonnes. If you have axle loads higher than that please contact us!
In the 1970’s Pandrol began supplying the Heavy Haul giants around the globe with the original Pandrol PR Clip system which resulted in Pandrol becoming the established product for Heavy Haul operations. The main Heavy Haul users in Africa, Australia, Brasil, Canada and the USA all had different operating environments, climates and local conditions which gave Pandrol a unique understanding of the Heavy Haul needs across different territories.
