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 continuous driving lane from the rail car, container, or flatbed directly to a loading dock for custom material and heavy equipment handling. Each aluminum rail spanner lays on the surface area with a strong 2" reinforced stub toe, which accommodates varying deck heights, and a reinforced 3" tapered safety kick plate to keep the ramp for sliding. 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. Higher capacity and custom sizes are available by calling 1-888-651-3431 for custom orders. Call for a quote on custom rail spanners and rail bridge applications. We can manufacture any size or weight capacity custom spanner you require!
