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) – 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>
A trench belt can be deployed when needed and ensures a proper fit of the cover.
The smooth internal surface of the BG-RAIL FILCOTEN cable trough makes it easier to pull in the cable strands.
Recess edge – 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.
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.
