A key player in the Rail Sector, Argus has been supporting hose development for over thirty years and is recognised as having one of the best low smoke and fume products available on the market and is now launching RailSAFE, an enhanced version of this hose range.
The RailSAFE hose compound meets the combustion requirements detailed in:
NF F 16-101 – Category I2 & F1
BS6853:1999 – Exterior minor use Category 1b and 2
EN45545:2013 – R23 for HL1, HL2 & HL3 hazard level classification
Full test reports are available to support the above on request.
The hose and fitting combination has been subjected to the tests detailed in EN854.
To demonstrate the confidence in the RailSAFE product we are currently subjecting the Railsafe AF45 hose range to an extended 1-million cycle impulse test.
The bespoke Railsafe AF45 hose range was designed specifically for the rail industry and is often used to replace a standard EN854 R3 hose for railway air brake applications.
