Our Composite Products are Ideally Suited to the Rail, Transport & Highways Industries

Our Composite Products play a prominent role in the Rail ecosystem.

Composite materials are playing an increasingly prominent role in the Rail, Highways and Transport industries thanks to their lightweight nature, durability and fire performance qualities. Composites offer significant improvements over traditional materials and are providing innovative and sustainable solutions for a range of key infrastructure projects.

In April 2020, it was announced that our patented modular train station platform solution known as Dura Platform had scooped the coveted Queen’s Award for Enterprise Innovation 2020, in recognition of its rapid deployment capability and its ability to improve overall safety for passengers.

If you’re a designer in transport infrastructure, we can help support your design services across all phases of the project lifecycle by providing detailed technical specifications for our award-winning product range. We have an extensive library of previous projects approved and installed throughout the rail and highways network.

Our industry leading solutions are made from high-strength and low weight Glass Reinforced Polymer, (also sometimes known as fibreglass, GRP or FRP) and help solve the key challenges of capacity, reliability and efficiency faced by everyday rail and transport businesses.

Dura Composites is proud of the diverse clients we work with in both the Railway Infrastructure, Highways and Transport Industries, including Network Rail, London Underground, Crossrail and major rail and highways contractors.

We are members of RISQS  – the rail industry’s supplier registration and qualification scheme, so you can buy from us with confidence.

Key products include our Queen’s Award Winning composite train station platform Dura Platform, GRP flooring, handrails, trench covers and structures, as well as low maintenance GRP Ballast Retention systems, trackside walkways, pedestrian footbridges and bridge walkways.

Dura Composites are also members of the Railway Industry Association (RIA), Rail Safety and Standards Board (RSSB) and the UPCRII industry steering group.

All Dura Composites products for infrastructure and civil works offer a fantastic lifecycle cost and are suitable for a wide range of new build and refurbishment projects.
