Features & Benefits
One metre long sections are connected together using jointing pegs which allows 1-3° of movement possible to follow gentle curves in the track.
MMtrough units can be secured against the threat of vandalism or theft with standard tamper proof locks and keys.
MMtrough won't catch fire and has low smoke properties.
MMtrough is designed with reinforced ribbing and twinwall design which ensures it meets pedestrian loadings.
Linear Ballast Anchor Points
Linear ballast anchor points secure the MMtrough unit into the surrounding material, meaning units are not displaced by the velocity of passing trains or vehicles.
MMtrough is built with 3° of flexibility in the interlocking connection to match bends in the track. For more extreme bends, vertical and horizontal bends can be supplied.
Weighing under 10kg, MMtrough offers significant health and safety advantages over traditional concrete troughing systems that can weigh over 90kg.
Single Person Install
MMtrough is suitable for single person lift and install, enabling compliance with manual handling regulations. Being lightweight and easy to deploy results in considerable project time and cost savings.
How It Works
One metre long sections are connected together using jointing pegs which allow for 1-3° of possible movement to follow gentle curves in the track. Laying MMtrough is typically five times faster than traditional concrete units, thereby reducing the total cost of installation.
Glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) is a composite material, fibre-reinforced polymer made of a plastic reinforced by fine fibres made of glass. GRP has a high strength to weight ratio, high temperature range, high mechanical properties and is fire retardant. Additionally, GRP is also chemically insert and isn't susceptible to creep.
Covers can be locked and opened individually or as a combination of several covers and can be secured against the threat of vandalism or theft with standard tamper proof locks and keys.
MMtrough meets the vertical load class of A15 set by EN124.
MMtrough has been designed with optimum sidewall strength performance to ensure minimal flex when back filled.
