Item # 101387, Open Grip® Brake Step, 10-1/16" Notch Offset

Morton’s line of brake steps and end platforms feature the same lightweight, self-cleaning, slip-resistant Open-Grip® pattern that our running boards use. Both brake steps and end platforms are easily fastened to the car using bolt seat washers through the Open-Grip® debossings.

Open-Grip® running boards, intermodal platforms, brake steps, and end platforms are made from 13 gauge G-90 pre-galvanized prime steel. Morton Manufacturing is proud to have a quality system that is certified to the ISO 9001: 2008 standard. All Morton railroad products are AAR approved.

One of the unique design advantages of Open-Grip® is the ability to interrupt the pattern. Interrupting the pattern allows us to offer integral “wiped” ends on our boards. This strong, radiused end is an important safety feature that provides a safe transition between boards when they are laid end to end. It also eliminates the mechanically fastened end supports that some other companies use.Morton Manufacturing is the industry leader in specialized, value-added applications which we can design to your specifications. We are small enough to react to your specific requirements and large enough to effectively and economically service your company’s needs.
