Flexicon has published a new brochure showcasing the company’s extensive selection of flexible conduit products and solutions for rail applications all over the world. 

Entitled ‘Cable Protection Systems for Rail,’ the brochure provides guidance for specifiers, installers and contractors involved in UK and international rail projects. It demonstrates the diversity and quality of the company’s product range, and features 14 approved conduit systems that are compliant with Transport for London standard – TFL S-1085 for London Underground and Crossrail.

Flexicon is at the forefront of material technologies and industrial design to deliver solutions that protect safety and performance-critical cabling. To ensure passenger safety and operational integrity, Flexicon’s flexible conduit systems are subjected to detailed quality auditing, including the International Railway Industry Standard (IRIS), and extensive, independent testing.

The extent of Flexicon’s product testing is detailed in the brochure, including ingress protection beyond BS EN IEC 60529. Product fire performance is also tested to EN 45545-2 (compliant to HL3), NFPA 130 and Transport for London S-1085. The brochure goes on to highlight projects where Flexicon products have been used – including London’s Crossrail and the London Underground, the Dubai Metro and China’s High Altitude Railway – to demonstrate product quality and the company’s global reach.

The brochure features metallic and non-metallic flexible conduit systems and glands intended for use in rolling stock, signalling and infrastructure applications, including applications prone to flooding or prolonged immersion under water. Other products detailed in the brochure include stainless steel and nickel-plated brass connection boxes, as well as accessories such as locknuts, sealing washers, clips, clamps and stopping plugs.

Says Tim Creedon, Sales & Marketing Director for Flexicon:  “The safety and reliability of the rail network’s rolling stock and infrastructure is of paramount importance, and adhering to evolving international standards can be a challenge. 

“This brochure was designed with this in mind – we understand and appreciate the various challenges involved in managing and controlling risk, and achieving compliance with the latest standards. We are confident this brochure provides specifiers, contractors and installers with the best possible guidance for specifying, procuring and providing innovative and reliable cable protection solutions.”
