2018 Launches

Scott Parnell has taken the initiative to embrace products that provide both commercial and on-site benefits and that has started with ArcoSystem elevated trough. We are the sole suppliers in the UK of this innovative product that is the only elevated GRP trough that is Network Rail Approved to span 6m between fixings.

This has been proven time and time again to provide huge monetary savings on both installation time and labour costs. This is a further example of the different directions Scott Parnell Ltd drives market growth.

We will be showcasing our  brand new smaller Size Zero Range as well for Fibre and Telecom Cables.

There are more new products to be launched this year including a walkway system that will integrate directly with our ArcoSystem and our Touch Safe GRP Palisade fence system that will provide answers to the questions raised about the current offering regarding resistance to vandalism and strength.

At Rail Live 2018, HS1 Ltd will be celebrating the first decade of operations of High Speed 1 including the railway’s economic impact across Kent and the UK. HS1 Ltd will showcase the latest techniques and insights into asset and infrastructure management and profile the communities and people that have helped to make High Speed 1 a true UK rail success story.

At the show Peli will launch the innovative Peli™ 9600 LED lighting system. This new system of linkable lights offers a powerful output over a length of track, eliminating the problems of dark sections associated with other similar products.  The Peli™ 9600 has been developed in cooperation with rail industry professionals and is a rugged, versatile system, ideal for the tough conditions experienced in trackside maintenance.
The full range of Peli portable trackside lights will also be on display, many of which now feature an “intelligent control” panel.  Intelligent control adjusts the light output according to the length of light duration required, providing a real-time display.  The control panel can be set to the number of hours and minutes of light required and the unit will calculate and adjust the output.


Stanton Bonna is pleased to launch the innovative precast concrete MOFIX pile foundation, which can be used for various applications including overhead catenary poles, masts or noise barriers. The MOFIX is installed by method of drilling and its compact design means that little space is required, minimising disruption to any surrounding infrastructure. The units are delivered to site ready to install, meaning they can be laid very quickly and that the cost for in-situ steel and concrete materials is significantly reduced compared to traditional construction methods. The MOFIX system is proven on European rail networks and it is suitable for all types of ground, whether its soil, sand, clay or rock, with minimum impact on the environment.”

The new Husqvarna K 1270 comes with the patented X-Torq® engine that contributes to lower emissions and low fuel consumption. This without losing its superior power among petrol driven power cutters. In short; an unbeatable combination. At the same time, Husqvarna introduces Husqvarna K 1270 Rail, with the same benefits. Husqvarna K 1270 and K 1270 Rail will eventually replace all Husqvarna K 1260 power cutters.

SilentRail® have developed a revolutionary rail coating that reduces rail noise & protects from damage.  Unwanted rail noise causes damage to both the ear and the surround fixture and fittings. SilentRails® engineered rail coating, prevents the rail from vibrating, which dramatically reduces the noise. The system also protects the rail from damage and reflects heat, preventing the rail from buckling.

Key Benefits:

  • Noise Reduction of up to 9dba.
  • Quick & efficient install onsite.
  • Bespoke design which allows the coating to be applied to any existing rail system.
  • Quick & efficient install onsite with minimal setup.
  • Life span of up to 30 years
  • Option for heat repelling pigment which prevents to the rail from bucking and welded joints from breaking.
  • Dampens vibration reducing noise and damaged.

Mirage have developed a new method of rail welding using induction. The system is lighter enabling the use of light-weight RRV’s, power consumption is one quarter that of flash butt welding, almost nil emissions, and very safe to use with a very low risk of ignition to surrounding areas. The rail weld is a forged joint with adjustable rail consumption with bend strengths significantly higher than flash butt and aluminothermic welds. Mirage are set to raise the bar for rail welding cost, integrity and possession times for rail infrastructure. Come and visit us on Stand E55 at Rail-Live.

Visitors to stand W12 at this year’s Rail Live exhibition will be left in no doubt about Ballyclare’s impeccable credentials as a rail industry workwear supplier. The company will be displaying its new range of male and female-fit hi‐vis polycotton garments which have helped it secure yet another new contract to supply workwear to Network Rail.  Ballyclare already supplies Network Rail with full ranges of both foul-weather and arc protection garments, and this new contract underlines the company’s strength as a specialist supplier to the rail sector.

“We have been providing Network Rail with a wide range of our waterproof foul‐weather garments for some time,” explains Roger Foster, Ballyclare’s Sales & Marketing Director.  “We also supply them with flame‐retardant and arc‐protection clothing for their employees who are involved in more demanding and hazardous tasks. Under the new contract we’ve now also begun to deliver our industrially launderable hi‐vis polycotton jackets, cargo trousers, polos, T-shirts, fleeces, bodywarmers, safety vests, coveralls and base layers to Network Rail, and these will be displayed on our Rail Live stand.”

This latest rail success underlines Ballyclare’s strength as a major workwear supplier to the sector. “We will be showing the new hi‐vis polycotton garments which we designed to meet the stringent Network Rail specification,” adds Roger. “Our experience in this sector allows us to really understand the specific demands which it places on workwear. We also worked closely with end-users to find out exactly what they required from us, and this helped us create new workwear which offers improved fit, female fit options, better performance and greater value for money.”

With multiple leg lengths, a wide size range and industrially launderable designs that offer maximum comfort, Ballyclare’s safety garments are the only ones that Network Rail allows its employees to wear, and visitors to the Ballyclare stand will soon come to understand why that is. The company’s innovative, multi-hazard protection wear is the only range of high visibility garments that are fully waterproof and breathable, flame retardant, anti-static and which offer electric arc protection, but which meet the Railway Industry Standard, RIS-3279-TOM.

As a British designer, manufacturer and distributor of protective clothing and specialist PPE, Ballyclare is a BSIF (British Safety Industry Federation) Registered Safety Supplier and is accredited to RISQS, the Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme.

Sandhurst will be launching a revolutionary new attachment at Rail Live with a launch party at 2pm on Wednesday 20th June at our plot E1 and we’d like very much to see you there to raise a glass to a Great British innovation which will change the way we handle complex structures for good.

The Articulator 5000 is the world’s first attachment capable of handling or manipulating, complex, irregular, and weighty structures up to WLL 5000 Kg and 20m in length For the first time ever, on site and on track, operators will be able to move and place with precision masts, poles, box sections, H sections, tubes of steel or concrete which are tapered or of different variable diameters.

This innovation is set to revolutionise performance on site or on track providing enormous savings in time and cost with one man handling from the cab of an excavator or RRV of carrier class 14 tonnes and above.

Responsive, strong and capable by design, The Articulator 5000 features combination of responsive elements - telescopic legs, four individually adjustable feet, a central stabiliser pad, and a rotating brainbox. This stunning combination means The Articulator can adjust to various widths and sizes and remain sturdy and safe.

The performance of The Articulator 5000 on site is jaw-dropping as it rotates enormous steel masts, heavy concrete pipes, tapered poles with ease as if each was as light as a feather.
