On its exhibition stand (H66), Silver Fox® will be showcasing its wide range of labelling solutions but especially its Fox-Flo® UV-stable, low smoke, zero halogen (LSZH) tie-on cable labels. Independently verified as meeting tough, stringent standards with regard to durability despite the most demanding of operating conditions, Fox-Flo® labels printed in conjunction with along with the Silver Fox® Fox-in-a-Box® Cable Label System is approved for use by London Underground (LUL) – especially for labelling both low and high voltage power cables.

Through customers, such as Waverley Engineering, Silver Fox® labels and Fox-Flo® in particular, are often used on London Underground and other major rail projects. Silver Fox® products are also supplied by, among others Grafoplast Europe (based in Hitchin) and Thorne & Derrick, the well-known national distributor and worldwide exporter of cable installation, cable jointing and electrical equipment for industrial and hazardous areas – which includes use in the rail industry.

According to Nick Michaelson, CEO of Silver Fox®, the Silver Fox® Tie-On cable marking system is ideal for large cables and cable bundles - including use with nylon or stainless steel cable ties – such as are used in the rail industry. For example, they are used on LUL compliant cable labels for power, co-axial and fire alarm cables.

He added: “At a time of continued investment in rail, Infrarail 2014 provides an excellent opportunity for companies, such as Silver Fox®, that serve the rail infrastructure market to showcase their products and services. We’re delighted to be heading to Earl’s Court for this event.”
