GLS 100R® Electrical Insulation
GLS Coatings Ltd have been awarded a Network Rail Framework Agreement for the Application of Insulated Coating for LNW Route, LNE Route, SE Route, Scotland Route and Anglia Route.
ONLY GLS 100R® - insulates up to 35,000 Volts.
GLS Coatings' Technicians are fully experienced in the application of our GLS 100R® Electrically Insulating Coating on a variety of substrates, including concrete and steel.
Since our successful initial project, when we coated all the Signalling Location Cases in the public domain for Wessex Route, through to our collaboration with Network Rail and Southampton University, ONLY our GLS 100R® is providing the solution to the many diverse problems.
Increasingly, Network Rail Routes are encountering problems when the clearance between the OLE and the substrate of the bridges is significantly reduced. We have worked with Richard Stainton, Professional Head of Electrification at Network Rail, and Southampton University, in testing our GLS 100R® at 195kV in both AC and DC currents, in conjunction with surge protectors, to provide a solution.
There are NO SHOCKS with GLS 100R® Insulating Coating
Working with Network Rail's Electrification Senior Technical Officers, GLS Coatings Technicians are applying GLS 100R® to electrically insulate parts of the booms and drop tubes on overhead equipment.
And, of course, GLS 100R® continues to make its mark when coating the underside of overbridges, to prevent bird-strikes when pigeons fly between the OLE and the bridges. Since York Station footbridge was coated in 2014, there have no further line-trippings.
GLS Coatings Ltd are the ONLY Approved Framework Supplier to Network Rail for the application of Electrically Insulating Coatings.
GLS 100R® coatings stop pigeon strikes on depot doors.
