KETS (Kestrel Emergency Telephone System) Now Network Rail Approved

Designed to provide a public emergency telephone system for level rail crossings, the KETS system has been engineered to meet the onerous standards of such applications whilst providing simpler installation and maintenance. The initial investment and projected lifespan of the KETS System would allow significant savings over existing competitive products.
