Safety, sustainability and security polymer cable troughing

In the age of digital rail, with IP and radio-based communication and control systems, cable troughing can (on first glance) appear an uninteresting and low-tech subject. However, cable containment and protection is still an important part of the communication and control network. Over the last 10 years or so, the introduction of polymer-based cable troughing has contributed […]
