Anticipated design life of sixty years.
Utilising the same composite material design as our market-leading station platform Dura Dagger Boards, the panels have an attractive woodgrain effect finish which mimics traditional timber. Our cladding and canopy soffit panels combine strength, durability and minimal maintenance allowing them to be used in a variety of station footbridge or platform applications either externally or internally as attractive panelling, soffits and fascias.
The lightweight design means that the panels can be easily manually handled into position without the need for special lifting equipment and ensures that existing structures can take the load of the wood-look composite cladding without the need for intervention at track level. It also allows footbridge parapets to be enclosed with less risk to passengers thanks to the Class B fire rating.
The non-conductive Dura Composites material is long lasting and has an anticipated design life of sixty years, making it suitable for new build footbridges as well as footbridge refurbishments and station platform canopy upgrades. They are ideally suited to modular footbridge designs with differing span arrangements that can be modified for each unique location.
