Description

Manufactured in one size with a choice of standard or heavy duty options, the covers come complete with fixing brackets (also in GRP) for rapid installation. They are a fraction of the weight of the steel version, so handling the grates into position is really easy.

The GRP is UV light stabilised to maintain the highlighted blue colour throughout its life and as GRP products do not rust or rot, this adds up to a maintenance-free life.

Should substantial damage occur to any components, spare parts are available for quick easy and low-cost replacement.

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
  • Lightweight
  • Maintenance free
  • Low lifecycle costs
  • Rapid fit times
  • Insulating properties (electrically non-conductive)
