Safety through heavy-duty brake systems for railmounted cranes

Static storm brakes for railmounted cranes to prevent runaway in a storm or power failure

Cranes in port and container terminals around the world are exposed to high stress due to climate change strengthened by storms or sudden wind interference.

Other emergency situations represent blackouts.

The use of storm brakes prevents that cranes are set in motion by external forces and thus endanger people and goods.

In this application area SIBRE globally works together with crane manufacturers, suppliers and operators for many years to offer high-end storm braking systems for railmounted cranes through using the most up-to-date means of production and technology.

These brake systems not only convince of their high quality, but also through efficiency and serviceability at the same time.

Individually adjustable closing time

Suitable for different rail and wheel sizes
