Although a simple method of transportation, railway system components can be quite diverse and complex, and face challenges similar to the aerospace industry. The rail industry has many aspects of operation and maintenance, such as high-speed public transit, diesel engines hauling large amounts of cargo, light rail for urban transit, subway trains, monorail trains for airports or amusement parks, and many others.

Just as an airliner must meet FAA requirements, rail systems must comply Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) requirements. Zippertubing® carries proven solutions and raw materials to create custom applications that comply with those FRA requirements, as well as other specific needs to solve problems that occur in the rail transport system.

Zippertubing® manufactures custom and proven solutions to the rail industry to meet FRA requirements for testing and application, and to resolve many other issues that may fall under the need for EMI shielding, cable management, heat shielding.

With rail systems carrying valuable cargo, ensuring all wires and cables operate as they should is crucial.

Depending on how power generates, the systems used to conduct power can elevate to very high temperatures or be exposed to harsh chemicals. Using Zippertubing® products ensures protection from the conditions faced in the nuclear energy, power, and utility industries.
