Anti-Slip Flooring Solutions for Railway Stations
At GripClad, we provide non-slip flooring solutions for rail platforms and stairs. Railway stations are dangerous places at the best of times. As well as minding the gap and staying behind the yellow line because a train is rushing past, the heavy commuter foot traffic can take a toll on stairs and walkways, making them a slipping hazard.
Britons make over 1 billion passenger train journeys a year and that figure is on the increase. Waterloo, the UK's busiest station, gets over 94 million visits a year. With so many people commuting to work every day or using the train to take a vacation, train stations need to be safe for everyone. With so many stations in the UK, train line companies also need a safety solution that meets the needs of such high traffic areas, while remaining cost effective.

Tactile Pavers for Train Platforms
Platforms are by far one of the most hazardous areas of railway stations for pedestrians if the correct solutions are not in place. Our tactile pavers are compliant with the Equality Act 2010, warning visually impaired users of hazards ahead. For instance, our corduroy pavers and can be used to warn visitors to the station that the edge of a platform is ahead, with additional anti slip properties.
