Are your cables providing tasty treats for vermin?

1st November 2014 - Rail - Infrastructure, Protection From Rats, Hazardous Areas

rat attack   Throughout the years, there have been many stories in the media and on television about Rats causing chaos for railway lines. Back in 2010, millions of pounds had to be spent on the repair and replacement of 20,000 miles of rail track, across the UK, solely due to Rats gnawing and damaging cables. Of course, with damage to this cabling comes serious implications to trains and their passengers; severe delays, break downs and, in some tragic cases, even crashes. July, 2014 saw a collision…

It is important to note that these experiences had nothing to do with any PMA products, but with conduits from another, unrelated, company. This loss of confidence in polyamide materials led them to begin searching for alternative cable protection…
