Passive Safe Cable Terminations



Passive Safe Terminations & Safety Equipment


The TOFCO TPSK range of Passively Safe Cable Terminations have been specifically designed for use with all Passively Safe Support Structures in accordance with BSEN 12767:2007 - these include High Energy, Low Energy and No Energy lighting columns, signposts and traffic signal posts.

TOFCO offer two Passive Safe Termination Systems tailored to meet the varied requirements of the street lighting industry - the TPSK - ZV and the TPSK - SAFE system.

TOFCO TPSK - ZV – this is the market leading Zero Voltage disconnection system, ensuring that complete electrical disconnection is achieved below ground in the event of a vehicle impact, even if the supply cable is tethered.

What are Passively Safe Systems?

Passively Safe Systems are those items of street furniture placed in the roadside which are designed to deform or break on impact to reduce the severity of injury to a road user in the event of an impact. These include sign posts, lighting columns and gantries. These systems are tested to the harmonised European standard EN12767.
