Signal Structures

After years servicing the rail industry, WEC Rail offers a variety of structures to suit all requirements. We are specialists in signal structures, straight post signal platforms (912mm, 1272mm & 1500mm width), gantry and cantilever type structures, all designed with the view of "ease of installation".

WEC Rail has become renowned for its innovative design ideas, and employs an in-house design team committed to staying at the forefront of the rail industry. This expert team, coupled with access to WEC Group's specialist and extensive facilities enabling entire projects to be managed from one site, and an internal fabrication and PTS trained installation team ensure that WEC Rail truly is a 'one-stop shop' for any rail related requirement.

The WEC Rail expert design team have designed structures to suit many requirements, these range from generic designs providing the client with flexibility of use, to highly complex bespoke structures designed specifically to overcome unique location difficulties.

General or specific, WEC Rail provide a variety of signal structure options including one, two, three, four, five or six-track portal gantries, one and two-track cantilevers and single-post signal structures. Additionally, to further demonstrate our commitment to the industry WEC Rail provide Form B and Category 2 structural calculation checks.

Focused on innovation within the industry, WEC Rail has broken away from the industry standard and has implemented a new and exclusive design approach. This has produced some impressive results such as the design of a new gantry which is ultra-slimline and weighs in at only 60% of the previous model. The new design is not only more aesthetically pleasing, but also results in improved functionality via better withstanding the wind speed of passing trains, and being 40% lighter than the last model only increases the ease of installation!
