Ballast Cages.

Hannams has had many years experience in supplying RailCorp and other rail networks within Australia with a purpose built fully welded galvanised steel cage to sit over concrete drainage sumps to alleviate ballast stone from encroaching into the drainage pit and at the same time providing an effective means for draining excess water away from the ballast bed and track area.

Ballast cages are manufactured using a heavy duty mild steel fully welded frame, fully braced with rigid weld mesh panels. Appropriate lifting handles are provided for safe handling of the ballast cage to and from the drainage pit area. All ballast cages are with half size removable lids to allow inspection of the drainage pit via appropriate rail corridor staff. Our ballast cages are manufactured in compliance with RailCorp standard #CV0400998 and are used throughout the metropolitan network.

All ballast cages are manufactured to the following pit sizes or can be produced to suit a particular drainage pit or ballast bed configuration.

Standard RailCorp overall cage height - 650mm unless otherwise advised.
