Safety Access Flooring Solutions
At GripClad, we provide non-slip safety access flooring solutions in collaboration with our design, supply and install team offering bespoke fibreglass access structures. Railway lines, stations and storage areas are dangerous places at the best of times.
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. As there are 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.

GripClad Anti-Slip Panels
Our anti-slip safety panels and sheets are a simple solution that provide a safe environment across all access areas. Every step and path around the station can be made safe and secure with these non-slip panels. There are also a variety of methods to make them stand out.
GripClad's anti-slip GRP panels are resistant to heeled shoes, weather and chemicals. They are an affordable, non-slip safety product for train stations that have been proven to excel over other methods.
Installed as part of your station's health and safety precautions, the panels can help avoid slip accidents and potential liability claims.
GRP Anti-Slip Stair Tread Covers
Our heavy duty anti-slip stair tread covers can be fitted with minimal downtime, and with an immediate positive safety enhancement.
Hard wearing and resistant to all weathers and high levels of foot traffic, our covers are ideal for both external and internal stairs and are available in a wide range of colours and sizes.
We aim to meet your specific requirements providing you with tailor-made, cost effective solutions to everyday slip and trip hazards.
Anti-Slip GRP Gratings
GRP Grating is another cost-effective and versatile solution for railway track access, trackside walkways, signal gantries, footbridges and walkways. Available as GRP square moulded open mesh, mini-mesh and pultruded gratings, their reliability and durability means an extremely long lasting solution and maintenance free.
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.
GRP Handrails for Additional Support
Our commercial GRP handrails offer the ideal additional support for pedestrians crossing railways bridges and using stairs in the station. Made up of 70% fibreglass, these corrosion resistant handrails can withstand the harshest of environments. They are perfect for high footfall commuter traffic, withstanding the consistent knocks of suitcases, bikes and bags.
Easy-to-install and cost-effective, GRP handrails are maintenance free and outperform traditional galvanised steel.
GripClad anti slip solutions provide a safe walking surface on platforms, station steps and walkways, providing comprehensive security to commuters all year round, no matter the weather.
Slips, trips and falls make up 47% of all railway platform accidents. We understand the needs of the rail industry especially the volume of foot traffic and the impact that has on flooring and stairs.
We needed a heavy duty anti-slip solution that could stand up to the punishment of daily foot pounding and impact."Gripclad's product suited that bill perfectly."
