Cable Protection Troughs

FP McCann manufacture and stock over 30 different types of ‘C series’ cable protection troughs and lids. Electricity service cables and trunking are completely protected from accidental damage or acts of vandalism whilst allowing for ease of access to maintenance teams.

As well as the standard straight troughs and curves, we supply a range of specials including, tees, transitions and transformer/ location bases, all with Network Rail Approval.

If you require a non-standard item that is not shown in our product range, we offer a bespoke service working to your specification.


Using lightweight concrete technology, that has been utilised and proven for years when manufacturing concrete fencing products, FP McCann have developed a lightweight C series troughing system. 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 Trough-Lite 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
