GRP Trestle Platform For Railways

Evergrip GRP (glass fibre reinforced plastic/polymer) trestle platforms have been independently modelled and based on existing wooden sub-structure design. The use of GRP can offer the designer many advantages over traditionally used materials. Because of its high strength and relatively light weight, a GRP trestle platform can be fabricated and offered with a range of fitting options to suit individual railway site conditions.

All required safety features are included – an anti-slip platform surface, speed line (when specified), platform edge markings and an offset blister tactile strip.  They offer excellent opportunities for the new build or refurbishment of suburban and remote railway station platforms and railway rolling stock & train care maintenance facilities.

Trestle Platforms are Built to Last

Our full or partial height fibreglass trestle platform systems are manufactured from high quality pultruded GRP composite sections. They offer a rapid fit, maintenance-free solution for railway platform extensions, refurbishments and height adjustments. The same design is also highly suited to train care and motive power depots, providing safe access for maintenance and repair workers.  They are a highly durable solution, with a 60-year design life.

Bespoke GRP Trestle Platforms

The GRP trestle platform system can be fabricated and offered with a range of fitting options to suit individual requirements. Due to its relative light weight, the partial pre-assembly under factory conditions and installation on site is often achieved by hand. This greatly reduces installation costs, equipment use and possession times, limiting any subsequent disruption to normal operations.

Anti-Slip Platform Surface as Standard

For passenger applications, the surfacing of newly erected structures is also simply achieved with EverDeck load bearing panels. They provide a black, slip resistant, highly durable surface incorporating an off-set tactile paving strip.  All required safety line markings and a hidden fixing system are included.

Structures are impervious to even the harshest of weather conditions, so they will not rust or rot. Our trestle platforms are also easy to clean. Should significant damage ever occur to any components, modular construction allows for quick, easy and low-cost replacement and repairs.
