Railways led to the development and change of the iron and steel industry all over the world. With the spread of railways in the 19th century, most of the iron and steel producers established in many countries, primarily in the USA, England and France. iron rail profile started to work for production.


Railway rails are defined as S class. S-class rails have high vertical strength compared to A-class crane rails. Compared to the crane rails, they have high heights and high surface widths. Railway rails should not be welded to the ground. The dimensions of the crapocks used when laying the rail bars on the ground are generally 21.102-N crapo or 22.105-N crapo.

Railway rails in our country is the only manufacturer of Karabük Demir Çelik Fabrikaları A.Ş. d. Kardemir produces S-class large size rail tracks. Apart from Kardemir, small scale rail manufacturers generally manufacture crane rails, which are defined as Class A.

S Class produced in Turkey ray beam dimensions:

  • 54 E4
  • UIC54
  • 54 E1
  • 60 E2
  • 60 E1
  • UIC 60
  • 59 R2 grooved rails

The rail-mounted rail track is used in the materials referred to as pads to fit the rail profile on the ground. Rail track pads are an important support material used to reduce the pressure on the rail during the passage of the wagon and also to reduce vibration. Rail pad is made of rubber material. Rubber, the raw material of rail pad products, can be produced either naturally or artificially.

Railway track profiles ton prices

Railway rail profiles prices vary depending on the iron and steel industry. The main factors causing the changes in the rail prices are iron ore prices, oil prices, natural gas prices and scrap prices. Railway rail prices, of course, vary according to the size, apart from the main price change factors.
