GRP Modular Handrail Systems
Another cost-effective and versatile solution for railway track access, is trackside walkways, signal gantries, footbridges and walkways. Yellow or Grey in colour choice, reliability and durability offering an extremely long-lasting solution and maintenance-free.
GripClad modular handrail system consists of a 50x40mm grp pultruded tube (5mm wall) in 5m or 6m lengths that fit exactly into the comprehensive range of matching grp molded fittings. The majority of the fittings are in pairs to fit round the tube. The fittings connect to the tube with bolts passing through both parts of the fitting and the tube. We also supply a special bolt/nut combination where both the bolt head and the nut recess into the fitting so there are no exposed edges to catch the hand of the user.
The handrail system has been independently tested by the Engineering Dept at Lancaster University. Their tests confirm that the handrail system meets all the requirements of BS4592:0 2006+A1 2012 Industrial flooring, stairs and handrails for the general duty (0.36kN/m). We recommend a maximum span between stanchion centres of 1.25m but the Lancaster tests did show that at a wider spacing the handrail remained within the specification given in the standard.

Paving Tactiles 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 off-street blister tactile pavers are used to warn visitors to the station that the edge of a platform is ahead, with additional anti slip properties.
