Acting on behalf of Network Rail, Colas Rail/ Morgan Sindall Construction chose GripClad's range of anti-slip flooring to eradicate the problem slippery footbridges and platform stairwells throughout the rail network.
Network Rail passengers were suffering from slippery footbridges and dangerous stair areas high traffic platform locations in a number of railway stations. In order to provide its passengers with a safe travel experience, Network Rail needed a heavy duty anti-slip solution that could stand up to the punishment of daily foot pounding and impact.
GRP Anti-Slip Flat Sheeting & Stair Tread Covers were supplied for contractors to retro fit over existing footbridge substrate and stair areas. The products success met all the specifications for an adequate slip resistant surface because of the very high footfall of train passengers daily.
The product was supplied cut to varying widths. The aggregate grit surface is aluminium oxide which is embedded within the base resin surface of the tread and is almost diamond hard and has a very high resistance to wear, and provides the ultimate traction required in these heavily used environments.

"Our No.1 Priority was to ensure the safety of our passengers who use the foorbridges daily. It was crucial also to find a product that would be up to the job of accepting high numbers of footfall. Gripclad's product suited that bill perfectly." - Rasheed Singh, Morgan Sindall
