FP McCann has developed a lightweight precast troughing system by utilising proven lightweight concrete technology.
The lightweight TroughLite™ system has the same dimensions as the company’s traditional products, so that two systems are fully compatible. TroughLite™ reduces the concerns associated with manual handling due to a weight reduction of up to 30% when compared to standard concrete.
FP McCann’s TroughLite™ system is authorised by the Network Rail Acceptance Panel (NRAP) to be used on railway infrastructure for which Network Rail is the Infrastructure Manager.
Certificate of Acceptance Number: PA05/06217
