Requirement ISS Labour Ltd required cable hangers for the track renewal programme at Summit Tunnel in Todmorden, Yorkshire. Contractor CRSA Balfour Beatty had requested that the cable hangers be fitted onto the tunnel wall in order to replace the previous troughing route. The hangers were to be installed at 1m intervals, with the bottom bracket installed at rail height.

Solution The Ellis Pegasus hanger offered a non-corrosive, lightweight & modular hanger option. The modular element allowed the 4 way hanger to consist of a combination of 100mm hooks and a control style bottom hook, to suit project requirements. ISS Labour selected Pegasus for its high quality. The 1200 units were supplied to a short project timeframe, to suit the track access timetable provided by ISS Labour.
