GRC Channels for the Rail Industry
All within the Health & Safety At Work Act. GRC cable troughing can be installed quicker than pre cast concrete which can save you money. ... www.bcmgrc.com/railhome.shtml
Ben, what IS your customer laying: cable - ordinary HT cable and drainage pipes, or what? And is it indeed attached to a more heavyweight engineering programme - such as casper's posting might suggest - like a railway line?
