Temperature Controlled Location Case (PA05/06865)

Rainford is pleased to announce that they have received PADS approval from Network Rail for their Temperature Controlled Location Case (PA05/06865). 

The 3 bay temperature controlled location case (TCL) uses a forced air, active cooling system above 22oC to maintain a suitable working environment for signalling and telecommunications equipment.  The TCL can house both BRS SM440/867 frame work and standard 19 inch racking, allowing the installation of new and legacy equipment.

The TCL can remove the need for REBs and associated services in locations where an REB cannot be justified. 

The Rainford rail team are delighted that they can offer Network Rail PADS approved temperature controlled cases to their customers which is a welcome addition to their innovative rail product portfolio.
