London Underground Approved Cable Containment from Unitrunk

Unitrunk Cable Tray, Ladder, Trunking & Basket

LU London Underground Approved



Unitrunk are delighted to announce that they have obtained approved product status from a number of its cable management ranges.

Providing product to London Underground projects demands compliance to the most rigorous standards.

Strict quality controls and demanding installation criteria requires products and service that meets the highest standards.

To have Transport for London approve products to be included on the product register makes a clear statement as to the quality of those products.

It is a benchmark for consultants or contractors assessing the suitability and durability of products.

Unitrunk - London Underground

Unitrunk met the challenge head on when, a couple of years ago although not on the approved product register, they were specified to manufacture and supply a range of bespoke single and multi - compartment trunking for a communications, P.A and Fire alarm project.

Unique installation requirements resulted in over 480 bespoke components being manufactured, a dedicated on site engineer and design team provided the solutions.

The products approved with their respective LU London Underground reference numbers are:
