    Mountbridge™ Platform

    Introducing the Mountbridge™ system from Hammond ecs Ltd: a 60 year design life platform refurbishment solution designed to address Platform Train Interface (PTI) stepping distance issues. Compatible with Dura Platform panels, it offers easy adjustments without the need for extensive excavation.

    Suitable for overlays and regauging.

    The Mountbridge™ system from Hammond ecs ltd is an adjustable, extended lifecycle platform upgrade system that overlays the existing platform structure to eliminate PTI stepping distance issues at stations. This reduces the time, cost, mess and disruption associated with excavation and removal of existing structures and speeds up installation, meaning less inconvenience and disruption to passengers.

    Fully compatible with the patented Dura Platform Glass Reinforced Polymer (GRP) 40 platform surface panels, this system requires minimal maintenance, negate the requirement for repainting of white/yellow lines and can incorporate a yellow high visibility tactile pad recessed into the surface for enhanced safety.

    Available in two variants – one with GRP plates and pedestals suited to platform overlays to solve PTI challenges (in compliance with RIS7016-INS 3.4), and the other using a combination of plates, pedestals and structural wide flange beam to facilitate platform extensions and increase passenger capacity (in compliance with RIS-7016-INS 3.1).


    Built-In PTI & Fall Management

    The combination of GRP plates and pedestals with integrated slope correctors allows for easy height and pitch adjustment of the platform and can incorporate a 1 in 40 fall to aid water runoff.

    Passenger Access

    Less Passenger Disruption

    System allows preparation work to begin during engineering hours, which results in less passenger disruption and more efficient use of possession times.


    Easy Upgrade for Limited Access

    Particularly efficient in locations where traditional build systems are not suitable due to limited access, restricted possession times and/or passenger disruption concerns.

    Dura Platform Panels

    Dura Platform is a composite alternative to concrete and other solutions that are costly and can require long possessions. Made from Glass Reinforced Polymer (GRP) which complies with Network Rail specifications, Dura Platform can cut platform installation time by up to 65% and is capable of being man-handled, eliminating the need for costly RRVs or heavy lifting equipment. Its hidden fixing system minimises trip hazards, and the platform is also crankable to create an instant 1:40 fall to manage drainage.
