Croom Concrete has many years’ experience in the design, manufacture and supply of precast concrete railway troughs.
Railway troughs are designed to safely support and enclose power and communication cables, and protect them from damage. There are made from solid, precast concrete and can be sited above ground or buried under the surface. Cable troughs provide easy access for maintenance, repair and improvements, as well as giving complete protection. A railway trough will usually have a flush-fitting lid. The precast concrete used is resistant to chemicals and non-conductive to electricity, and can protect cables from freezing or overheating in extreme weather conditions.
