The Eldapoint Cube Modular Equipment Enclosure.

Revolutionising Trackside Equipment with the Eldapoint Cube

The rail industry is vital to our transportation network, linking people, goods, and economies nationwide and globally. The Eldapoint Group, a seasoned supplier in the rail sector, is renowned for delivering top-tier steel enclosures and portable building units. Their latest innovation, the Eldapoint Cube, offers a cost-effective, sustainable, and groundbreaking solution for housing and maintaining trackside equipment.

Enhancing Safety and Sustainability in Trackside Installations

In partnership with the Tier 1 rail supply chain, the Eldapoint Cube is nearing PADS approval and is set to debut at Rail Live on 19th and 20th June. Its flexible, modular design allows the consolidation of multiple Location Case (LOC) installations, typically housed in separate trackside equipment housings (TEHs), into a single walk-in enclosure. Trackside maintenance and installation present various challenges, requiring workers to adhere to strict safety protocols and endure adverse weather conditions. The Eldapoint walk-in enclosure design offers numerous benefits, providing a controlled, safe working environment. This eliminates the need for temporary protective shelters, enabling workers to operate safely without disrupting live railway operations.

Jonathon Phillips, Eldapoint Group Commercial Director, stated, “The modular configurations help network installers future-proof the project. Besides enhancing safety, it reduces the footprint and overall installation costs while lowering the carbon footprint.”

Eldapoint Cube Specifications

The Eldapoint Cube is available in two configurations: "2 bay" and "4 bay," with the option to connect them via a link kit for various setups. These enclosures accommodate BRS-SM440 racks and 19” racking. Designed to be mounted on pre-set plinths or screw piles, they can be equipped with removable walkways. The Eldapoint Cube features an IP54 rating for dust and water resistance and an SR2 security rating for enhanced protection against forced entry. Additional features include:

Eldapoint’s rail enclosures are PADS-approved and designed to meet Network Rail standards.
