    Where to Find Us

    Railway Interchange 2019 attendees can find Metalex® at the conference at booth #2613. Since merging with Morton Rails Products five years ago, Metalex® has attended the event to explore current trends in the railway industry, collaborate with industry partners, and network with other people in our industry.

    Morton Rail Products now operates under the Metalex® company name, and we have continued to provide a full line of their products and offerings, including:

    • Open-Grip® Running Boards
    • Deck Span® Walkways and Channels
    • Brake Steps
    • End Platforms
    • Ladder Rungs
    • Mounting Accessories

    These are designed to provide long-lasting, reliable use. Morton Rail Product’s safety grating offers the following advantages:

    • Slip resistance. Like all our products, our safety grating exceeds federal specifications regarding slip resistance. This superior slip resistance extends to all directions for safer usage. The surface is also resilient in the face of impact damage and wear. The grating forms a large open area to reduce crowding and accidents.
    • Ease of Installation. This product is designed to be simple to install for both small and large companies. The parts are easy to handle, lightweight, and self-framing. The design also allows for one-piece construction so it isn’t difficult to install the grating.
    • Low Maintenance Needs. The safety grating is self-cleaning and requires little maintenance to remain safe or in good repair.
    • Compliance with ISO 9001 standards. We use 13 gauge G-90 pre-galvanized prime steel to fabricate our brake steps, end platforms, intermodal platforms, and Open-Grip® Running Boards. Also, the full line of Morton Rail Products is approved by the Association of American Railroads.
