Safe and secure access for railway staff to non-ramped platform ends or any raised the operating facility may be achieved using end of platform gated access steps made from composite materials.
A full design, drawing and engineering verification service is available for these products, with prefabricated units being delivered to site for rapid installation.
Complete with all safety guardrails these units provide a long lasting and maintenance free solution. All tread surfaces are finished with a highly durable, Anti-slip coating for all weather conditions. Gates are lockable for added security.
Glass Reinforced Polymer (GRP) products will not rust or rot, nor will they need painting as the colour is throughout the product and they are easy to clean too. Medium acquisition and low life-cycle costs are also significant. Should substantial damage ever occur to any components, modular construction allows for quick, easy & low cost repairs.
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
- Maintenance free
- Low life cycle costs
- Rapid fit times
- Insulating properties (electrically non-conductive)
