We're very pleased to announce that the Flexicon insulated flexible conduit system for cable protection is now available for use in new and upgraded Signalling Power Distribution Systems.
The range, which was recently added to our portfolio, has two levels of flame retardancy – ‘Standard’ and ‘Highly’ flame retardant, making it suitable for use in many areas. However, it is also targeted for use in flood areas and in Class II installations.
Network Rail has recently enhanced their PADS requirements to include a provision for areas prone to flooding or prolonged immersion under water. Crucially if an area is prone to flooding and/or there is a risk of cabling being immersed then currently only Flexicon can provide a PADS approved system for Network Rail signalling and infrastructure installations
Class II Installations
The Flexicon flexible conduits are approved for use in Class II installations, note that the Network Rail Certificate of Acceptance states “A Class II installation is satisfied if the insulating flexible conduits, glands and accessories are installed with other system components in accordance with NR/L2/SIGELP/24710 Issue 2. The use of insulating flexible conduit, glands and accessories alone in a Class I installation does not provide a protective measure.”
