GRP Cable Trough – Schneider

Protection of Rail Cables & LV MV HV Power Infrastructure

GRP cable trough manufactured by Schneider (formerly MITA) is used for trackside protection, support and management of rail power, signalling and telecommunications cables – this includes 11kV/33kV high voltage armoured/unarmoured power cables to British Standards (BS6724 BS6622) and 25kV/44kV trackfeeder cables providing DC and AC electrification in accordance with Network Rail specification NR/PS/ELP/00008.

Schneider also offer a range of cable containment and support accessories for GRP cable troughs including steel posts and brackets.

All components supplied by Schneider Electric have been manufactured in GRP composite using special ‘modar’ resin and pultrusion lamination technology.

Mita were bought out by Schneider Electric in 2009.

Mita, now Schneider Electric, is a specialist in the development and production of cable trough and management systems for low, medium and high power distribution.
