Fibreglass Structural Stair Treads & Landings

Fibreglass Footbridge Treads & Landings

Dura Slab structural stair treads are fabricated from fibreglass and have a high strength to weight ratio. Created in association with Abellio Greater Anglia, this new product incorporates a number of ground-breaking features designed to reduce project costs and installation times, thereby limiting disruption to passengers. Pre-fabricated and lightweight, the treads and landing can easily be fixed into position thanks to their single unit construction. Dura Slab structural stair treads feature a built-in riser for rapid installation and an in-built fall to assist with drainage and reduce pooling on stair surfaces. The Riser detail can be removed if necessary.

Replacement Stairs & Landings are Quick and Easy to Install Resulting in Shorter Possessions Times

The products are formed by combining resin and glass fibres to produce ‘thermoset’ products which are renowned for their strength and durability. Where previous composite treads on the market have been limited in span capabilities, Dura Composites has the ability to span up to 2.1m clear open span, achieving the required 5kN/m2 at L/300 deflection and meaning that additional supports can be avoided in most scenarios. The design has built-in risers, speeding up the install process and a slight fall to assist in the prevention of water pooling which can lead to problems with ice in winter.

Structural Stair Treads for Rail Projects

It has long been acknowledged that the challenges facing Britain’s railway network are those of capacity, reliability and efficiency – and that new technology holds the key to solving many of these. However with budgets under ever increasing scrutiny, it’s never been more vital to ensure that the solutions provided to the rail industry are both futureproof and have a measurable impact on efficiency. That has always been our goal, and with Dura Slab fibreglass structural stair treads, we’re proud to have pioneered a solution that really delivers.

Our single unit construction stair treads span up to 2.1 metres, are corrosion and weather resistant, non-conductive and require minimal maintenance, making them ideally suited to electrified rail environments and for use on passenger footbridges. Available in 65mm or 90mm thicknesses accommodating for up to 320mm Goings on the treads, the Dura Slab structural stair treads are the ideal choice for new builds or individual tread and landing replacement projects.

The Dura systems made from fibreglass are lightweight, high-strength, anti-slip, non-corrosive and non-conductive and so overcome all the problems normally associated with the use of traditional materials such as wood, steel and concrete. Our structural stair treads can be installed with minimum disruption to passengers, whilst still offering benefits over traditional timber treads.

All stair treads and landings have an anti slip surface creating one of the highest degrees of slip resistance ever measured for a walking surface.

Structural Treads & Landings Vastly Reduce Installation Times

Across the country, pedestrian footbridges are in need of essential replacement and refurbishment works to ensure their safe use by foot traffic. Landings and treads need periodic replacement due to the inherent issues with traditional materials, such as degradation of wood, rusting of metal, becoming slippery due to build-up of organic material or compliance with updated legislation. Dura Composites offer newly developed full systems to speed up install times and reduce costs, possessions and bridge closures, thereby limiting disruption to rail passengers.

Ultimately, it is an innovative, durable, more cost-effective, easier to install and transferable solution, suited to a wide range of structures, which delivers for customers, the community and the commissioning rail company. As such, we look forward to the roll-out of the Dura solution across more stations operated by Abellio Greater Anglia.

How Fibreglass Stair Treads Compare to Traditional Timber Treads

Where previous composite treads on the market have been limited in span capabilities, Dura Composites has the ability to span up to 2.1m clear open span, achieving the required 5kN/m2 at L/300 deflection and meaning that additional supports can be avoided in most scenarios. The new Dura Slab Structural Stair Tread design can be specified with built-in risers, speeding up the install process whilst increasing safety, particularly in scenarios where bridge treads are located near overhead lines or are replacing open risers.

Health & Safety Compliant

Thanks to the light weight, and single unit construction, no heavy lifting equipment is needed as all panels can be easily manhandled even in full stock lengths.

To ensure safety and ease of access for people with limited vision, Dura Slab Structural Stair Treads have DDA and Equality Act compliant contrasting coloured nosings, and provide a slip-resistant surface, particularly when wet.

Maintenance and Installation of Fibreglass Structural Stair Treads

On-going maintenance of the system is not required as fibreglass will not rot, corrode or even lose colour throughout is design life, and is ideally suited to situations where the footbridge or staircase is located in close proximity to overhead power lines or electrified areas, due to its non-conductive properties. All stair treads and landings have a gritted anti slip surface creating one of the highest degrees of slip resistance ever measured for a walking surface.
