This information was current in 1996.

Gantrex likes to point to some of Rowswells results that show their
product in a good light.

Another good top-running runway publication is from the International
Institute for Welding (IIW): Crane Runways, WG5- Crane Runways, IIW
Commision XV Design and Fabrication, April 1990. It provides a good
international overview and good technical and failure review. Edited by
Biskup and Bent, Canada.
