Kessler Kwik Rail is the latest Kessler Crane innovation featuring a variable length, premium build quality and versatility. Designed to take the Kessler Shuttle Dolly and also available in two sizes, the Kessler Kwik is an innovative rail system that can take large or small cameras, while being easy to pack down and fit in the boot of a car.
The Kessler Kwik Rail system comprises of custom machined threaded speed rails that can be configured into variable lengths (currently either 24 inch or 42 inch). Designed to be used with the Kessler Shuttle Dolly and also other speed rail compatible dollies on the market today.
Kessler are positioning the Kwik Rail System is quite different than similar products on the market, "by eliminating the need for connectors or coupling devices to attach two pieces of rail together" Kessler managed to eliminate unnecessary parts that can get lost and compromise the structural integrity of the dolly rail, and instead designed Kwik Rail to have the rails themselves threaded.
The integrated Kwik Thread design makes the connection between rail sections very secure and incredibly fast, up to four times faster than traditional speed rail - saving time, money and frustration on set.
The Kwik Rail has been designed out of aluminium as opposed to steel or other harder materials to save on weight, while still preserving a solid stature. The rails themselves feature thread protectors that will ensure your threads are not damaged during travel or in-use. In addition, the legs are available with either flat or spiked ends, to accommodate different shooting scenarios.
The anodised 6061 T6 aluminium schedule 80 pipe used for the Kwik Rail has thicker walls than many other speed rails available, increasing durability and ensuring maximum weight bearing, yet is drastically lighter than traditional steel speed rail. The precision grind on the Kwik Rail is second to none and provides a seamless transition from section to section.
The hard case is an optional accessory that is watertight, airtight and crush resistant designed to organise and protect Shuttle Dolly 42" rail sections. The case features pre-formed foam inserts can accommodate 14 pieces of rail, enough to make seven 42" sets and are designed to eliminate movement inside of the case for added protection. The Kessler Kwik hard case also features an automatic pressure purge system and has padlock holes that fit standard sized Masterlocks.
