Junction boxes and trackside ducting are warm dry places, irresistible to rodents. There are many points of access through which a determined rodent can squeeze and make a nest.
Problems occur because rats love to chew. As they gnaw through the protective plastic casing they dangerously expose the vital signal cable. With a break in the signal control, whole sections of railway are put out of use until the fault can be located and repaired. This results in expensive engineering costs and possible train delays.
Our specially designed RODENTBRUSH is easy to use, and incredibly effective. Tests prove rodents do not like the feel of RODENTBRUSH filament on their faces and whiskers.
In trackside ducting, RODENTBRUSH can be laid on top of the cables, filling the cavity and preventing rats from entering. In signal boxes and enclosures, RODENTBRUSH can be pushed into any gaps and spaces at the base of the compartment to act as a deterrent to inquisitive rats.
Unlike other forms of pest control, RODENTBRUSH can be easily removed for routine maintenance and then replaced for ongoing cable protection. Rodent brush can be exposed to all elements, allows air to circulate and water to drain away.
The result is protected cables that allow the signalling network to keep the trains moving.
