Panlock key is a type of rail fastener for bullhead rails. It is inserted between the rail and the chairs (mainly the outer side, sometimes the inner side).
Bullhead rail is a rail profile invented and widely used in the UK. There are mainly four types of rail keys for bullhead rails: the Panlock key, the steel rail key (the Mills Key), the JBBH rail key, and the wooden keys.
The function of Panlock key
In the fastening system of the railroad track, the panlock key works together with the cast iron rail chairs to support the rails tightly fixed to the sleepers. It is the unique twisted shape that helps the Panlock steel key hold its position. A Panlock key is inserted or removed by a special tool named Panlock-Puller.
The material of Panlock key
The panlock key made by AGICO is manufactured to the standard BS427. The material used is 5mm spring steel which reached the Vickers diamond hardness 370±30. Benefit from the property of spring steel, the panlock key is not easy to be crushed even after times of transporting passengers or loadings. The surface of the panlock key is coated with paint to prevent them from rusting.
