End stops : Hydraulic / Sliding friction type

Many passenger and freight locations are terminal (end of line) situations, on the rare occasions the train/Loco fails to stop or slow down sufficiently the risk is that it collides with or overrides the end of the platform / line.


Fitting efficient and effective end stops will protect rolling stock and infrastructure in the event of a train/Loco failing to stop.


End stops can be frequently found in docks and ports at the end of rails where cranes travel and railway lines are used to deliver coal or cargo to a port. They can also be used in factories and steel mills in conjunction with cranes and major machinery in order to take out some of the high stresses that the buildings can endure when the cranes are reaching the end of their travel.
