Helping deliver efficiency for traincare depots.
McNealy Brown Limited is an approved supplier for many Main Contractors and Infrastructure Companies operating across the Construction and Rail Sectors and was appointed for the modernisation of the existing Ealing Common Depot.
The depot is accessible from both ends, and lies in a north-west to south-east orientation, on the north-east side of the tracks between Ealing Common and Acton Town stations. McNealy Brown were required to install 4 low level platforms to enable the depot to carry out maintenance to the trains interiors and door level external maintenance.
McNealy Brown chose Dura Composites for the supply of a wide range of innovative low-maintenance and safe GRP solutions which could help meet not only the maintenance and cleaning requirements of new trains, but also the operational requirement of increasingly frequent timetables.
Dura Composites’ innovative GRP product solutions at Ealing Common Depot included trench covers, structural stair treads, handrailing, walkway grating and profile sections. The characteristics of GRP makes it ideal for transforming existing depots into state-of-the-art facilities, with minimal disruption to the depot’s operational teams. The most critical part of the design and install of the low level platforms made from Dura Composites GRP panels, was to ensure that no part of it encroached into the path of the trains.
