Low-Friction Linear Movement

Harken Industrial trolley and rail systems provide a simple and low-maintenance way to move loads smoothly.

The rail is a simple, strong, low-maintenance system on which the load travels. Harken Industrial offers four sizes of rail. Select the relevant size and length of rail (sizes listed by width measurement of the top of the rail in millimeters).

System Components 

low beam circle

 

Low-Beam Rail

Choose low-beam rail if it will be supported for the entire length.

High-Beam Rail

Choose high-beam rail for spanning unsupported spaces.

end-stops

Endstops

Endstops absorb shock loads and prevent the trolley from coming off the rail.

Ideal for Moving Heavy Loads

Harken Industrial rail systems can be used in a wide range of applications, including:

  • Construction
  • Renewable energy
  • Facilities management
  • Vessel maintenance
  • Material handling
  • Film production
  • Architectural
  • Utilities, oil & gas
  • Exercise
  • Transportation

Curved Rail 

Rails can be bent to suit a variety of applications.

Minor bends can often be made when the rail is installed. If the rail requires more bend, Harken Industrial can provide horizontal, vertical, or compound curves to specification.

The trolley’s length must suit the track radius to carry the correct load and perform smoothly. If the load requires a long trolley, but the radius is too tight, consider using two short trolleys joined by a coupler.

Below are the profiles of the four sizes of rails.

Q: Can Harken Industrial trolley and rail systems be fitted retroactively?

A. Yes. The simplicity of the systems means they can be easily installed at a later date.

Q: Are Harken Industrial trolley and rail systems able to accommodate a radius?

A: Yes. Trolley and rail systems can accommodate a radius bend. Contact Harken Industrial for information.

Q: Are Harken Industrial rail and trolley systems suitable for human suspension?

A: Only the R27 and the R32 Access Rail systems are certified for human suspension. Please view the Access Rail page for further information.

Q: What other benefits are there to Harken Industrial trolley and rail systems?

A: Harken Industrial strong, lightweight trolleys and rails are specifically designed to resist the corrosive effects of an outdoor environment. Stainless steel wire guides hold ball bearings captive when the trolley is removed from the rail. An open-ball race makes trolleys easy to clean with soap and water.

Warnings and Instructions

You must carefully read, understand, and follow all of the warnings and instructions in the manual provided by Harken Industrial in order to avoid an accident. Never, under any circumstances, exceed the maximum load.
