Crane Rail Heating

Thermal-Flex Crane Rail Heating Systems are comprised of industrial grade, high temperature constant wattage heating cables and various mounting components, accessories and controls for effectively heating crane rail. Designs are available for heating the trolleys and runways. The heating cable is covered with our high temperature fiberglass channel to both protect it and maximize heat transfer into the rail. The heating components can be fixed to the crane rail with threaded studs welded to the rail web, by drilling the rail, or clipped in place using the crane rail girder.
