Aluminum Rail Spanners are deployed quickly to easily move equipment and cargo over gaps between rail cars, tandem truck beds, and storage containers. Rail spanners create a bridge from the rail car, container, or flatbed directly to a loading dock for custom material and heavy equipment handling. Each aluminum rail spanner attaches to the surface area with a strong 2" blunt-end stub toe design for varying deck heights and a reinforced 3" tapered safety kick plate. Spacing between the bridge spanner beams is designed to accept heavy chain and large tie-downs to reduce bridge spanner shifting during operation. Robust quality construction tailored to meet the needs of the U.S. Military. Made with military grade aluminum, making them 40% stronger than 6061-T6. Standard versions have a maximum 20,000 lb capacity each and a 24" usable width. Higher capacity and custom sizes are available by calling 1-888-651-3431 for custom orders.
