GageLok® Rail Screws AS1085.18
GageLok® Rail Screws are a range of fasteners designed to fix rail directly to timber or composite sleepers.
GageLok® is the Australian market leader for timber and composite sleeper fixings being the contracted supplier to most major rail authorities.
GageLok® Rail Screws are a direct replacement for dog spikes.
GageLok® Rail Screws feature a DIN standard wood cutting thread and a shank slot to minimize any potential sleeper splitting on installation.
A key feature of the GageLok® is that the rail and/or plate is securely clinched to the sleeper, minimizing movement of the fastening system over time and minimizing damage to the hole. This results in substantially reduced system maintenance costs over time.
GageLok's® are hot dip galvanized to prolong life by minimizing rust formation.
GageLok® meets the requirements of AS1085.18. GageLok® Rail Screws have also passed the rigourous requirements of the AS1085.18, 3 million cycle, cyclic load test. Test reports are availabe upon request.
