TSS Green Rail Cable Trough & Troughing Systems

TTS Green Trough Systems

TTS Green Trough is fast becoming the product of choice where versatility and speed of installation of a cable trough is paramount.  With weight savings of up to 85% compared to the concrete cable trough alternatives, TTS troughing substantially reduces transport and on-site handling costs and offers installers a truly customisable solution.

Connecting TTS Green Trough units is easy and any troughing combination is possible. With a male and female connector moulded into the end of each base unit, no joint grouting is required. Pan and tilting flexibility in the joints also means a bending angle of 2° to 5° can be achieved (enabling the route to form a natural minimum radius of 13 to 15 metres).

This function makes laying TTS trough on uneven surfaces much easier and they can be effectively installed into various ground types, including ballast, soil (or a combination) and as a free-standing cable troughing route.

TTS troughs can also interface with existing concrete trough units.

Network Rail Cable Troughs

The ground level or elevated polymer cable trough management system comprising troughs and lids conforms to Network Rail NR/L2/TEL/00013 for protection and management of trackside cables including LV Low Voltage and HV High Voltage signal, telecoms and power cables up to 25kV.

Cable Trough Comparison v Concrete Troughing

TTS Green Cable Trough is available and certificated for use in an elevated application for three trough sizes from the range (TTS090, 150 & 200 Series). The troughing accessories for use in an elevated application includes standard brackets to mount the cable troughing support ladders on posts (either at one or two levels) or wall mounting brackets (for both perpendicular or angled walls). A separate Technical Specification for the elevated system is available – contact Thorne & Derrick.
