Hot rolled special steel shapes have proven to be economical and efficient for manufacturing material handling products such as overhead crane rail components, guided motion technology, conveyance tracks, warehouse shelving and industrial lift truck components.

Tram / Elevator Rail

McDonald Steel’s tram rail hot rolled T-Bar sections are produced using medium high carbon billets and then welded by our customers to a structural steel web and top flange. This innovative tram rail construction increases load carrying capacity and significantly improves track life. Incorporating McDonald Steel special steel shapes in your next  rail application design can help realize similar savings and improve product performance.

Crane Rail Joint Bars

McDonald Steel’s hot rolled crane rail joint bars are produced to meet today’s tough industry specifications. Our hot rolling process strengthens rails and provides stability for the largest overhead cranes lifting the heaviest loads. McDonald Steel also hot rolls special steel shape joint bars for other rail section applications.

McDonald Steel’s hot rolled special steel shapes are engineered to meet or exceed the critical standards that assure a lift truck carriage bar can manage the weight and pressure of daily use.
