The rail industry with HellermannTyton products

Cable identification: TLFX DS heatshrink markers

The rail industry: TLFX-DSThese cable markers come in a handy ladder style and have been specially developed for the rail industry. They meet the highest standards in terms of low flammability, have all the necessary certifications and can be quickly produced as permanent cable marking solutions on our thermal transfer printers.

Perfect for stringent fire protection requirements: the TIPTAG marking system

The rail industry: TIPTAGThe cable markers in the TIPTAG range are ideal for areas with particularly stringent fire protection requirements. They meet all the demands of the rail industry, are halogen-free and are particularly popular on account of their flexible mechanical properties.


For double-sided printing: the TrakMark DS thermal transfer printer

Rail industry: TrakMark DSThis thermal transfer printer is just the ticket when you need to print large quantities of heat-shrinkable tubes quickly. The TrakMark DS is capable of speeds of up to 125 millimetres per second – an efficient rate that stops printing from being a race against the clock.

Wherever you find friction and impact: Helagaine Twist-In-FR

Rail industry: Helagaine Twist-In-FRHelagaine Twist-In-FR is ultra-fast to process and helps you raise your installation and mainentance efficiency. And its excellent fire protection properties make this self-closing protective braided sleeving essential whenever safety is the top priority in the rail industry.

Speedy workflows for greater efficiency: with the EVO9

Rail industry: EVO9Nothing moves forward without evolution. For us, holistic cable management means ensuring both speedy and reliable processing. It was not only a matter of time before we designed the patented EVO7 tool for fitting cable ties. We specifically enhanced it, the result being that the EVO9 suggested addition: for heavy-duty plastic cable ties lets you complete your workflows even more quickly.


Our absolute forte: cable ties for the rail industry

Rail industry: T-SeriesWe specialise in the development of industry-specific cable management solutions. We have been working for some 20 years on behalf of the rail industry – an area where our innovations keep on setting new standards. Take our T-Series cable ties, for example, which are serrated on the inside for reliable grip on the bundle. The OS-Series, on the other hand, is serrated on the outside, so that sensitive cabling comes into contact with a perfectly smooth surface. If there is a need for exceptional holding forces, or reliably secure connections – such as on folding bellows – we recommend our KR-Series, a patented system with a unique head.



Rail industry: many HellermannTyton cable ties meet the requirements of DIN EN 45545

Perfect for the rail industry:
as confirmed by internationally recognised certification

Just under two decades ago, we started making secure cable management solutions for the rail industry. First and foremost, this unique industry is interdisciplinary and constantly changing due to market conditions and technical requirements. Over the years, one trend has been particularly noticeable: certification such as that in line with DIN EN 45545 has become increasingly important, as have exceptionally stringent fire protection requirements.

As a company, we therefore decided to get one step ahead. As we have our finger on the pulse and consult with legislators and institutes all around the world, we often meet the standards for the certificate you need before the legislation has even been passed. Across the globe, our experts are ready to help your company. We’re at home in 37 countries and speak your language.

We can even assist you in the planning phase for new rail vehicles. That is HellermannTyton to a T. No less characteristic than our wide-ranging service is the added value we provide by being a truly reliable partner.

Thinking and planning ahead

Two of our most indispensable characteristics are our ability to spot trends and to develop innovations that enable reliable planning. There didn’t use to be any certification for cable ties. We realised that things change, however, and worked extremely closely with the established institutes. Therefore, we were not surprised when certification became a requirement. Quite the opposite. We had already met the standards before the legislation was ratified.

This brings us neatly back to the story of The Hare and the Hedgehog. We’re already there!

Functionality based on quality.
Marketability based on certification

In the rail industry, stringent safety legislation is decisive in terms of marketability. International certification is key in this regard. The IRIS (International Railway Industry Standard) is already firmly enshrined in the procurement guidelines of HellermannTyton. As a long-standing manufacturer for the rail industry, we meet all requirements in this area and tailor our services to the needs of railway suppliers. In particular, the harmonious interplay between project management, configuration management and obsolescence management boosts the safety and efficiency of your operations.

Rail industry: cable marking, cable protection and cable routing – all from a single source

Furthermore, many HellermannTyton cable ties satisfy the requirements of DIN EN 45545. This sets out the fire behaviour requirements of materials and components in accordance with the guidelines of the International Union of Railways (UIC). The following HellermannTyton products, which are regularly used in the rail industry, have already successfully achieved classification as per this standard:

- T-Series PA66W, T-Series PA66V0
- OS-Series PA66W, OS-Series PA66V0
