Dorman receives Network Rail acceptance

Listen to this article

Leading LED signal innovator Dorman has received Network Rail acceptance on its revolutionary Integrated Lightweight Signal (iLS).

The signal has been developed over the past three years by the engineering team at Dorman, and represents a significant technological advance.

The iLS is now a complete system with the integration of Dorman LED and Optical technology into a new signal head and structure.

The integrated signal structure, which has the flexibility of either a ‘trunnion’ or the ground-breaking Signalling Equipment Enclosure, reduces the whole-life costs through a combination of reducing the time and cost of installation and being virtually maintenance-free, creating significant savings for project and maintenance teams.

The enclosure also enables the control of other trackside equipment without the need for a location case.

Multiple signal configurations can now be achieved in a single structure, reducing or eliminating the need for gantries, platforms and removes the risks of working at height.

Mark Morse, managing director of Dorman, said: “The achievement of the acceptance recognises that the new technologies developed by Dorman will keep us at the cutting edge of signalling development.”

Since acquisition by Unipart in 2002, Dorman has gradually increased its presence in the railway market and is now the market leader in LED signalling in the UK.
