As the original designer behind the most risk-free way to vent a hopper car, Salco takes pride in its vented hatch cover. As there have been millions of our covers in service over the past 20 years, the material quality and flawless design speak for itself. With conversion arrangements available for every major carbuilder, Salco can without a doubt meet your vented and non vented hatch cover needs.
But we don't stop there. Salco can also supply OEM bottom outlet gates as well as our own 5131 and Pullman micromatic conversion designs. If your gates are operable, but just need ""freshening up"", our Houston, TX Service Center provides a comprehensive 8 step reconditioning process to have them looking good as new!
