GRP Railway Catch Pit Drainage Covers

Our GRP catch pit drainage covers are Network Rail approved (acceptance No: PA05/03812). They make the ideal alternative to existing steel covers. This is because they are manufactured from tough but lightweight fibreglass, which is quick to install and easy to handle.

Our solution is perfect for new projects. They also make a great choice if you are replacing end of life or missing steel catch pit drainage covers. Not only are our GRP covers easy to handle, they are also maintenance free. Plus, with nil scrap value, they will not appeal to potential thieves.

Tough but Lightweight Railway Catch Pit Covers

Our GRP catch pit covers are manufactured in one standard size with a choice of regular or heavy-duty thickness options. Each cover can be supplied with fixing brackets (also in GRP) for installation. They are a fraction of the weight of the steel version, so handling the grates into position is much easier and safer for those working on the railway line.

The GRP we use is UV light stabilised to maintain the highlighted blue colour throughout its life. What’s more, GRP products do not rust or rot, so your catch pit lid will not require any maintenance.

UK stocks and spare parts are available for quick and easy replacements. 

Our GRP catch pit covers are Network Rail Approved for use:

The use of GRP in railway systems

The use of composite materials for infrastructure renewals and improvements on the UK’s railway system has gathered pace in recent years. GRP systems often have clear advantages over the use of alternative materials like steel, concrete and timber. Benefits of installing GRP components such as our catch pit covers include:

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