Trackside environments are littered with cumbersome and often broken concrete troughing lids. At the request of key clients, TTS have developed a composite lightweight lid which can be retrofitted onto C/1/9 and C/1/43 concrete bases, which invariably remain solid and intact.


Made from recycled materials, the TTS Replacement Composite Lid is compliant with Network Rail’s manual handling regulations for a single-man lift and is conducive to rapid installations, making it a compelling product for maintenance teams across the network.
