That works out to 73 miles of fence post - which would be 1,075 football fields laid end to end! Talk about the ultimate in recycling - a product that has been around for generations being re-formed into a product that will be used for generations to come!
The quality realized in rail-steel products can be attributed to the quality initially manufactured into all railroad rails. There simply is no other high carbon steel product which is produced and controlled as carefully as these rails.
When rails are taken out of service, Chicago Heights Steel makes sure they meet strict inspection standards for high quality before being purchased for rolling. During production, the rails are slit into three parts: head, web and flange. Each part is then rolled to a predetermined shape and size by a series of rolls. A section of rail steel can be transformed into tee posts, U-channel posts, or custom products in a mere four hours. Check out the process below.
