Maximum lateral stability

The solid ribs on the side walls ensure maximum stability.
+

Prevents shifting at the transition

With the tongue-and-groove system, the troughs are installed from top to bottom. This helps avoid any sideways shifting and prevents grit from entering the cavity.
+

The benefits at a glance:

<ul> <li>Lightweight yet stable component</li> <li>Environmentally friendly, 100% recyclable</li> <li>Quicker installation (manual installation possible) &ndash; less track obstruction time</li> <li>High dimensional accuracy and straightness with the tongue-and-groove system and trough installation from above</li> <li>The BG-RAIL FILCOTEN cable trough is lighter, narrower and more compact than conventional troughs. The easier and faster creation of mitre cuts saves time when diverting the run around pylons.</li> </ul>
+

Trench belt

A trench belt can be deployed when needed and ensures a proper fit of the cover.
+

Smooth surface

The smooth internal surface of the BG-RAIL FILCOTEN cable trough makes it easier to pull in the cable strands.
+

Recess edge &ndash; outer edge of the trough

The upper edge serves as a guide to level the backfill material when creating paths.
+

Verified LCA (life cycle assessment)

<ul> <li>Reduced greenhouse gas emissions</li> <li>Manufactured with 100% green power</li> <li>Resource-efficient manufacturing process</li> </ul>
+

Cable trough cover

The cable trough cover protects cables from damage and harsh weather. All cable trough covers are produced with or without fibre reinforcement.
+

Anchoring pockets

The innovative FILCOTEN HPC production and moulding technology made it possible to design anchoring pockets for a concrete trough body to ensure an even better hold in the ballast bed.
