Concrete cable trough is in service throughout the UK Network Rail infrastructure including West Coast Main Line Upgrade, Channel Tunnel Rail Link and Southern Power Upgrade projects.

Concrete cable troughs have been installed for light rail and underground train systems at Glasgow, Newcastle, Sheffield, Birmingham, Manchester and Nottingham.

Specialist and customised rectangular and trapezoidal concrete cable troughs can be produced to order -Cable Trough this includes concrete cable trough, duct and channel.

The cable trough system is complemented by a complete range of concrete tees, transitions and curves specifically designed to complement concrete cable trough systems - all cable trough products are approved to Network Rail RT/E/PS/0013.

The concrete cable trough lids are designed to withstand an 11.5 tonne wheel loading thus allowing vehicle overrun - cable trough lids are available in steel chequer plate and concrete infill.

All cable trough lids are galvanised to prevent corrosion, with the larger lids having substantial under-bracing to attain required strength.

Please note lids with under-bracing will reduce the internal capacity of the cable trough. Concrete cable trough lids provide trackside protection to cable runs including fibre and radio cables. 

Cable troughs and ducts provide easily accessible, affordable sustainable solution to rial, highways and power industries for the protection and troughing of power, fibre optic, pneumatic and rail cables.

Cable Trough Benefits

  • Cable troughs are non-conductive to electricity
  • Cables buried at depth are unexposed to environmental change
  • High strength cable trough for long term cable protection
  • Cable trough allows easy access for cable repair, jointing and cable additions

Anderton concrete cable troughs are available in 100mm, 130mm, 150mm, 190mm, 250mm and 350mm widths - T&D UK provide a nationwide delivery service for concrete cable trough by Hiab vehicles.

To complement the standard straight cable trough and lids containment system, T&D also supply rail industry specials including concrete Tees, curves, transitions and transformer bases approved by Network Rail.

Also - Hi-Ax lids designed to withstand an 11.5 tonne wheel loading, thus allowing vehicular overrun on the cable trough system.

Cable trough Hi-Ax lids are available in steel chequer plate and concrete infill to suit the complete concrete cable trough range.
