MET-TRAK™ Double Nested Drag Chain System

Part one of a Double Nested MET-TRAK™ Cable & Hose Drag Chain system is currently being built in Workshop 1 and will shortly undergo the Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) that will be witnessed by our client, a leading global supplier of Offshore drilling equipment.

The fully assembled MET-TRAK™ system will leave Metreel for it’s final destination Newfoundland, Canada complete with pre-installed cables and hoses that are accurately placed within to protect expansions and contractions. 

The 'Plug and Play' installation is simply achieved by loading into position and connecting to the static pipework onboard the Offshore Rig, minimising production downtime.

Metreel now certified to ISO 9001:2015


Gaining this certification is such an achievement!

It means our customers have complete assurance that Metreel operates to the highest quality standard and that all regulatory requirements are met for our products and services while we continually strive to maintain and improve these standards that set us apart.

Customer satisfaction has always been a fundamental part of our business but implementing ISO 9001:2015 ensures we identify all present customer needs and identify and assess future requirements. It also helps to measure client satisfaction and enables us to continually improve our processes.

One of the unique parts of the new ISO 9001:2015 is the requirement to assess risks and identify opportunities but also to continually examine opportunities for improvement. It also enables us to put in place the operational controls to effectively manage and measure our performance.

This is a milestone achievement and one that reflects Metreel’s growth and development as a leading manufacturer of Enclosed Track Handling, Lifting and Fall Protection products.

The diverse visitor turnout far exceeded our expectations with the 3 day show generating huge interest from end users to OEM’s from all areas of industry.

We are extremely pleased with visitors’ repeated comments on the ‘simplicity’ and ‘ease of use’ of the MET-TRACK® design - one of the reasons this particular product stands out from the competition.

The launch of the NEW CraneBUILDER™ service offered visitors the opportunity to have a crane system designed and quoted within minutes with full approval drawings emailed directly to them for consideration over a coffee!

New Radio Remote Controls

Metreel have extended their range of crane control equipment to include the NEW T-Series Radio Remote Controls providing a superior solution to traditional wired control systems.

The T Series Radio Remote Control is designed for wireless control of cranes & hoists and other industrial machinery. Using RF communication with univocal code, our T Series controllers provide reliable operation at all times even in ‘electronically noisy’ environments.

Removing the need for a cable connection between the pendant controller and the machine, provides greatly improved freedom of movement to the operator, leading to increased productivity and efficiency and, more importantly, an increase in operator safety.

Having an operating range of up to 100m*, 111 channels and quick and simple installation, the T Series offer a cost effective and extremely efficient means of providing accurate wireless control.

The compact and lightweight handheld transmitters are available with 3, 5 or 7 buttons plus Emergency Stop. They are rated to IP65 so can be used in a wide range of environments and in temperatures from -20C to +70C. All units conform to community directives R&TTE 99/05/CE and LVD 2006/95/CE.
