Green Trough are mainly laid alongside railway tracks, and carry and protect all kinds of cables, for communications, signals, and electrical power distribution and transmission.
The Green Trough cable trough developed by Furukawa Electric is environmentally friendly, being made from recycled plastics, is extremely light at only one quarter of the weight of the conventional concrete troughs, and lightens the burden on construction workers and significantly reduces construction time.
Also, it is resistant to corrosion and salt damage and has superior durability, making it suitable for use in many locations, such as along coastal areas, etc. It can be used in a variety of fields other than railways, such as roads and electrical power.
Furukawa GREEN TROUGH offers the most innovative, environmentally friendly and state-of-the-art solution to cable route management. GREEN TROUGH polymer cable trough is simple and fast to install thanks to its low weight and intuitive joining mechanism and can be modified on site using basic hand tools.
Approximately 70% lighter than concrete alternatives.
In addition, approximately 40% larger about the capacity than concrete alternatives (These numbers are based on a comparison between GREEN TROUGH 120 series and JIS concrete trough 120 series).
GREEN TROUGH is made of recycled polymer from post consumer plastic waste including bottle caps.
GREEN TROUGH can be installed in tunnels thanks to its flame resistance.
Joint system allows for minor obstacles to be avoided without the need for 45 degree bend units.
