OVERHEAD RAILS are usually single rails (monorails) that hang from the ceiling moving the product attached or hanging from it by pulling a track, chain or trolley through a system of tracks and turns. They are an efficient and economic method to utilize areas above the floor. They are ideal for transporting parts through ovens, paint booths, or similar operations.
