Navigating bridges is no problem for ARCOSYSTEM®
Our adjustable cable management product ARCOSYSTEM® proved it can be successfully attached to a range of bridges during a group of recent challenging installations.
The jobs were each located around the city of Darmstadt, near Frankfurt in Germany. They presented a host of practical installation issues to solve, including having to mount the cable troughing on top of ballast boards and designing a ‘river jump’ of more than ten metres.
The various projects highlighted the proficiency and versatility of ARCOSYSTEM®, an elevated cable management system manufactured from pultruded fibre-reinforced polymers (FRP) and secured by laser-cut steel brackets. The lightweight troughing allows for height and directional adjustments to be made with ease when running it along complex routes. ARCOSYSTEM® can be post-mounted, wall-hung or attached to an assortment of trackside structures such as bridges or even roadside barriers.
ARCOSYSTEM® can span six metres between supports, allowing for quick and cost-effective installation, especially when used in conjunction with our eco-friendly foundation material TECHNO-CRETE®, an innovate alternative to concrete post mix.
Exclusively distributed in the UK by Complete Composite Systems, ARCOSYSTEM® carries cable loads of up to 90kg/m. Being constructed from durable materials ensures a constant working temperature range of -40˚C to +80˚C, allowing it to withstand continuous freeze-thaw cycles.
