Harness clamps increase transit safety

Harness clamps increase transit safety Tufnol Composites - the leading UK manufacturer, machinist and stockist of high performance laminates, composites and engineering plastics - has secured orders to supply a series of electric cable and harness clamps and a variety of other critical components machined from its Grade 10G/24, for mass transit customers such as Bombardier, Alstom and London Underground. Tufnol Grade 10G/24 is a high strength phenolic resin glass fabric laminate that has excellent low smoke and toxicity characteristics, good electrical insulation properties and proven resistance to harsh working environments. The specially formulated phenolic resin of Grade 10G/24 gives exceptional performance in fire tests and far exceeds the properties of standard phenolic materials. The tests revealed controlled flammability, good resistance to ignition and excellent low smoke and toxicity values. The Tufnol machined cable and harness clamps are used in a variety of rail vehicle applications from light rail vehicles to locomotives and high speed trains and in the majority of cases are for under vehicle fixings. The characteristics of this LFH (low fire hazard) phenolic grade are even more important now that underground safety standards have been dramatically increased following recent tragedies. The low smoke performance of Tufnol Grade 10G/24 is vitally important for applications in tunnels, underground facilities, offshore platforms and other situations where fire safety is of particular concern.
