Trackside Cable Troughing Is Made Easy Thanks to the Flexible ARCOSYSTEM®

This article first appeared in the Railway-News magazine, Issue 3 2022.

Installing cable troughing alongside a railway line is often made more challenging due to an obstacle-laden route or inconvenient trackside access. However, with ARCOSYSTEM® — Complete Composite Systems’s versatile elevated cable management product — any installation job runs much smoother.

Manufactured from pultruded fibre-reinforced polymers (FRP), the lightweight composite troughing allows for height and directional adjustments to be made with ease when running it along complex routes.

Designed to be adaptable so it can be successfully installed in a variety of challenging settings and circumstances, ARCOSYSTEM® can be post-mounted, wall-hung or attached to an assortment of lineside structures such as bridges or even roadside barriers.

Secured by bespoke laser-cut steel bracketry, ARCOSYSTEM® can also span six metres between supports, allowing for swift and cost-effective installation compared to ground-based alternatives.

Navigating Bridges? No Problem!

ARCOSYSTEM® was recently chosen to be the cable management system for a batch of tricky jobs running across a number of bridges around the city of Darmstadt, near Frankfurt in Germany.

The cluster of projects presented several practical installation issues to solve, including having to mount the cable troughing atop a long run of ballast boards and designing a ‘river jump’ of more than ten metres. As can be seen in the images, the adjustable ARCOSYSTEM® proved it can be successfully attached to different styles of bridges in a diverse range of locations.

Another project required cable troughing to be fitted across a towering viaduct in the German ski resort of Willingen-Upland. With no room to lay down concrete and a limited working area for operatives along the bridge, our specialist narrower elevated version of ARCOSYSTEM® was the ideal solution for a space-constricted job in a soaring setting.

Innovative Solution

In a further example, the dexterity of ARCOSYSTEM® was put to the test during a recent project in the German town of Gössnitz.
