    Kings Cross Rail Station, London, UK

    GRP End of Platform Steps

    Project Overview

    Contractor AmcoGiffen selected Dura Composites to design and fabricate 6 sets of GRP End of Platform Steps which were installed by Amco in a very short time frame to meet the needs of the tight project timescales.

    Ideal alternative to steel for OHLE areas.

    King’s Cross Station is the southern terminus for the East Coast Main Line. Known as the King’s Cross Station Redevelopment Programme, one of the facets of this complex project involved the reconstruction of platforms 1 and 8 and shortening of platforms 5 to 8 to enlarge the concourse.

    AmcoGiffen chose Dura Composites to design and fabricate six sets of end of platform steps made from our high-performance GRP Dura Profile and Dura Slab Structural Stair Treads.

    Rapidly fabricated at Dura HQ & delivered to site.

    Weighing up to 80% less than steel and 30% less than aluminium, Dura Composites End of Platform Steps offer equivalent performance for considerably less weight. This results in major savings including lower installation costs due to more economical transportation, handling and on-site positioning.

    The client was delighted with the quality of the design and workmanship and with Dura’s ability to turn the fabrications around in such a short space of time, describing the structures as having “gone in like a dream”. As well as fully fabricated non-corrosive and non-conductive single unit GRP end of platform steps Dura Composites can also supply in component or flat pack kit form ready for quick assembly on-site.
