Bespoke Trough Solutions

Features & Benefits

Trotrof Composites, Trojans North American Sister company, developed bespoke TroTrof products for some of North America’s largest rail projects. These were created with the same tried and tested recycled polymer, which needed to be economical and high performance. Some of the projects in Canada needed specialist design that could withstand their extreme environmental conditions. The recycled polymers we use for all our products have now withstood their demanding seasons, proving zero issues despite a temperature range from -45°C to 70°C. So a UK year will never be a problem either.   

 

These TroTrof products are made from the same high specification industry waste, which has shown to exceed 50 - 100 years. 

 

The recycled polymer material and trough design share exactly the same advantages to our UK units:

  • Strength exceeds concrete product

  • Almost five times lighter than concrete reducing transport and handling cost

  • Accelerated life test greatly exceeds NR specification life expectancy

  • Reduced maintenance time and effort     

  • Reduced fatigue and injuries allowing ease of installation

  • Can be walked on without concern for damage

  • Smooth friction-free internal trough surfaces improving cable life 

  • Due to their lids, there is no need for Cable Pulling 

  • Can easily be installed on embankments, cuttings, or over bridges allowing greater engineering flexibility

  • It can be cut using a handsaw or powered tool but does not produce high noise levels, toxic fumes or dust

  • Made locally in the UK, unlike other copycat products. Therefore no shipping, foreign exchange risk or delivery delays.   

 

They have been extensively tested to pass the rigorous NFPA 130 fire ratings too. 

The Data sheets for these can be viewed on the links provided. Our Innovations and Design team are always to hand to create the perfect solution for any project needing sustainable and cost-efficient cable management.
