FP McCann TroughLite
FP McCann has developed a lightweight C series precast troughing system by utilising proven lightweight concrete technology that was traditionally used when manufacturing precast fencing products. The lightweight Trough-Lite system has the same dimensions as the company’s traditional products, so that two systems are fully compatible. Trough-Lite 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
