Preventing slack span and kinetic friction: plastic guide rails

Our wide range of accessories also comprises guide rails for roller chains. They help support and guide the chains, prevent undesired slack span and, compared to steel rails, reduce slide friction.

Standard guide rails are made of polyethylene. Furthermore, other types made of special materials, regenerated PE or C-steel rails for extra support and mounting optimization are available. C-steel rails are made of either galvanized or stainless steel. On request, we can also supply special designs, and milled constructions made of standard or special materials. We also offer guide rails for our accumulator chains.

We will be happy to submit a tailor-made quotation to suit your individual requirements. In order to be able to do so, we would like to ask you to provide detailed information on all system data concerning load, standstill and speed.
