Description Icon Description

Suitable for new projects or end of life board replacement the GRP system is typically used to retain track ballast on bridges and to protect track-side facilities on embankments. Non-metallic construction makes them nil scrap value to thieves.

Much lighter in weight than traditionally used materials, but just as strong, the panels can be produced to withstand all required loading capacities.  They are easier to transport, quicker to install and offer a zero maintenance, long life span.

All sizes are manufactured to order with an option of integrated post & handrail system.

Background

The use of composite materials for infrastructure renewals and improvements on the UK’s railway system has
gathered pace in recent years. GRP systems have benefits which show clear advantages over alternative proposals
(steel,concrete & timber), with a combination of desirable characteristics:

  • Corrosion resistance
  • High strength
  • Light weight
  • Maintenance free
  • Low life cycle costs
  • Rapid fit times
  • Insulating properties (electrically non-conductive)
