Cable Trough C/1/8 – TTS 200 Series
Network Rail PADS Approved C/1/8
Certificate Of Acceptance PA05/05145
TTS 200 Series of polymer cable troughing is suitable for LV MV HV Rail Cable Protection in ground installations in ballast, on concrete plinths, wall mounted or elevated onto posts – the straight cable troughs including base and lids are manufactured from recycled synthetic resin to provide vertsatile cable ducting systems for power, signal and comms cables.
The closest concrete trough equivalent size is C/1/8 – polymer cable troughing is 67% lighter (67kg versus 21kg) with a 33% more capacity of 27750sqmm versus 37000sqmm. Where cable capacity is not the prime concern, but weight saving is, the TTS 200 Series provides the perfect solution for safer conformance with Manual Handling & Operations Regulations of troughs and lids.
TTS 200 Series polymer cable troughing units for rail cable protection and management include:
- Straight Troughs
