Removal GRP handrail system at railway rolling stock depot


The requirement was to construct a guard rail system for this large, newly built maintenance depot. The system comprised of individual removable sections of varying sizes which mounted onto fixed steel posts, facilitating access to the train vehicles at any position.

As the track is electrically live it was determined in the design that the use of a steel handrail system would have been hazardous should any part of it fall from the platform. The fibreglass system was chosen due to its non-conductive characteristics, strength, light weight and durability.

In total, approximately seven kilometres of GRP tubing was used on this project with 75% of the fabrication carried out at our factory in Selby. In order to meet tight programme schedules, the remainder was fabricated in workshops close to the construction site.
