Couplers made theft-proof

Couplers are traditionally manufactured from brass, leaded gun metal or stainless steel, making their high weight-to-value ratio presents a theft risk. Proof Engineering therefore pioneered the ProAlloy zinc coupler, which offers reduced theft risk, lighter weight and lower cost. The ProAlloy is manufactured to specification from a zinc, copper and aluminium mix which holds no […]
