Anderton Ander-Fin : Preventing Rail Cable Theft From Cable Trough On Network Rail Infrastructure

New from Anderton Concrete is the Ander-Fin rail cable theft deterrent - the simple route to secure trackside cabling.

The pioneering new cable protection system used in conjuction with Anderton cable troughing enables cables to be secured to cable troughs every metre in high risk areas.

Ander-Fin prevents rail cable theft by securing the cable to the concrete trough - specified for new cable trough routes. The Ander-Fin would be the first component fitted in the trough and the rail cable would fit around it. To protect existing cable trough routes the Anderton Ander-Loc system to prevent trough lid theft or removal can be installed.

T&D distribute the complete range of Anderton concrete cable trough.
