Slingco's Catchblock gets Network Rail and National Highways approval

Slingco's innovative Catchblock has received formal approval from Network Rail and National Highways (formerly Highways England).

Catchblock is a system for replacing and recovering overhead conductor cable and makes some pretty big claims, including reducing disruption, risks of accidents and costs during replacement of conductor cable.

Nick Dykins, managing director, reported: "Our single system has been fully and permanently approved by Network Rail and National Highways.

"In addition, Network Rail has approved temporary certification for our Catchblock twin system for 12 months. For our utilities contractors this means the seamless replacement of cable with minimal disruption to infrastructure."

Catchblock is now supplied in two versions - UK and export to meet growing national and international demand for this product.
