Mountbridge™ Platform Solution


A platform refurbishment solution, fully compatible with Dura Platform panels, which allows for easy stepping distance adjustments. Can be easily deployed to rectify Passenger Train Interface (PTI) stepping distance issues.

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.

The Mountbridge system is fully compatible with the patented Dura Platform Glass Reinforced Polymer (GRP) 40 platform surface panels, which require 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.

BUILT-IN PTI AND 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.

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.

60 YEAR DESIGN LIFE FOR PLATFORMS

  • Sustainable product due to extensive design life
  • Multi-award winning & patented design
  • Complies with fire safety standards set by Network Rail (Network Rail TQ-51_R – Appendix A: Specification & Testing Requirements for GRP)

MODULAR SYSTEM

  • 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)

SAVES TIME & COST

  • Can be rapidly installed to bring platform stepping distances back into compliance
  • Minimises passenger disruption

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.
