Tough But Lightweight Railway Catch Pit Covers
Our GRP catch pit covers are manufactured in one size with a choice of standard or heavy-duty options. Each cover comes 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 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.

The use of composite materials for infrastructure renewals and improvements on the UK’s railway system has gathered pace in recent years. GRP systems offer 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)
