Our Products


The hollow porcelain insulators are manufactured using high strength Aluminous porcelain and subjected to strict process and dimensional controls.This insulators protect the internal components from being exposed to the vagaries of the weather


Modern’s Solidcore insulators are not only designed to meet the essential mechanical & electrical properties but also to effectively meet the loads arising out of short circuit, seismic, wind, thermal, ice and any other dynamic loads.


The long rod insulators are subjected to static and dynamic loads including wind load, ice load, conductor galloping, short circuit forces etc. and are designed to withstand such loads constantly and continuously for decades.


Modern insulators has set the standards in the design, manufacture, testing and supply of insulators for railway traction application. We manufacture various categories of 25kV railway insulators addressing every need for the electrification of railway lines.
