Description

The REHAU Patented, Height-Adjustable GRP (glass reinforced plastic) Insulators have been developed in partnership with both Network Rail and Transport for London.

Manufactured in the high-tech tough and chip-resistant GRP material, REHAU insulators outperform the traditional porcelain alternative. Our insulators are easy to handle, quick and simple to install and give greater strength and increased safety to the railway network. REHAU insulators can be adjusted in use, without the need to unbolt them or use multiple pads.

We provide insulators for both overground and tunnel applications.
