TERRAsystem cable ducts in polypropylene – fast and efficient cable routing

Whether for railways, airports or the energy grid, the use of modern infrastructure relies heavily on a steadfast energy supply and information transfer. In this context, it is important that the vast lengths of essential cables are effectively protected from external influences. The TERRA system is easy to install, extend and modify.

Simple and flexible handling

The TERRAsystem cable ducts can be quickly and easily installed by hand, thanks to their low weight and relatively short length. They simply click together without the use of any tools other than a screwdriver, if you want to secure the covers with screws.

The use of lightweight plastic offers several advantages, including cheaper transport and simple installation at the site without the need for transport and lifting equipment. Installation is easy with punched holes for cable outlets.

Flexible in use and reusable

The plastic covers of the cable troughs can be fastened with screws and are easy to reopen. This allows the cables to be checked and inspected, and the TERRAsystem cover to be reinstalled. Furthermore, the system is easy to dismantle and reinstall, so a perfect solution for temporary installations. Overall, from a lifecycle cost perspective, the polypropylene cable ducts are a cost-effective alternative to traditional concrete cable troughs thanks to a shorter installation time, with reduced personnel costs and down-time in the track, while the recyclable materials are a benefit when the product reaches end-of-life.

Strong and lightweight

TERRAsystem cable ducts are lightweight and incredibly strong, thanks to the integrated ribs and reinforcements. The system is as strong as traditional concrete troughs. Walking on the covers is possible to a limited extent, and they can be opened and re-closed several times, allowing for quick visual inspection of cables.

Easily adapts to the cable run

Punched cutting grooves allow the plastic cable tray to be easily adapted to the requirements posed by the cable run, e.g. curves, angles and T-sections.
