At Metalex, we’re not only committed to providing our customers with the best industrial products available, but also to be a solution provider. We aim to expand and evolve, offering more of what our customers want and need to satisfy their requirements.

Following Morton Manufacturing Company’s merging with Metalex, we’re proud to offer a full line of Morton Rail Products.  Our Morton Rail Products offerings include:

  • Open-Grip® Running Boards
  • End Platforms
  • Brake Steps
  • Mounting Accessories
  • Steps and Platforms
  • Auto Rack Side Sheets

One of the unique design advantages of Open-Grip® is the ability to interrupt the pattern, which allows us to offer integral “wiped” ends on our boards. This strong, radiused end is an important safety feature that provides a safe transition between boards when they are laid end-to-end, while eliminating the mechanically-fastened end supports that are commonly used by competitors. Our running boards are thus easy to handle and install.

Open-Grip® running boards, intermodal platforms, brake steps, and end platforms are made from 13 gauge G-90 pre-galvanized prime steel. These proven, quality products are certified to the ISO 9001, and all Morton Railroad Products are AAR approved.
