Torrent Trackside are the experts in the design and installation of trackside and tunnel lighting. With safety being the main priority on track our lighting systems are designed and installed to ensure that poor visibility isn’t a contributory factor in accidents.
Our experienced Lighting Supervisors control the contract from start to finish, the process starts with a site walk which enables Torrent Trackside to design the best lighting solution for the site. All Torrent Trackside lighting installations are fully detailed in our Lighting Method Statement that is supplied to our customers prior to installation for sign off that we have understood their requirement and designed a solution that is compliant.
The lighting set up will then be installed by our PTS Certified Staff all of whom are trained in house and put through a rigorous mentorship program before being allowed to work on a lighting site. The installation will be overseen by the Supervisor who is also a fully trained COSS
The lighting solution can be installed prior to the possession to speed up access to the tracks and ensure that maximum productivity can be achieved in the possession. Our staff will also maintain and modify the lighting as required throughout the shift to ensure safe working (this can include re-fuelling, moving or adding lights as conditions change, etc.)
At the end of the shift the Torrent Trackside personnel dismantle, remove from site or make safe all lighting equipment as required.
An area of particular expertise that Torrent Trackside have developed over many years is the design and installation of Tunnel and Underground lighting systems, these are naturally more complex than a standard trackside lighting installation.
Our specialist contracting team based in Canning Town design innovative solutions that not only provide the lighting for these applications but also Power Generation solutions that support the ventilation of the tunnels in addition to the lighting and power the welfare facilities and other plant equipment being used in the tunnel whether this is on the Network Rail infrastructure or London Underground. The team have a national remit and then work with our local lighting expertise to deliver the contract operationally.
