Troughs are used on the railway to protect signalling, telecommunications and power cables. During works on the railway, troughs themselves are in need of protection from heavy machinery and vehicles. Galvanised steel plates supported by timber sleepers are used to cover the troughs to protect them. These are then removed once work is completed.

LCI Rail have extensive experience of supplying troughing and trough protection on the railway. We provide installation of troughs for new cable routes as well as replacement of existing troughs. Our experience extends to installation of concrete troughs, as well as light weight GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic).

We offer troughing and protection as an additional service to other projects such as level crossings or RRAP installations. We also offer this as a standalone service.
