Fireproof Railway Cladding & Soffits
Class B Fire Rated Cladding & Soffit Panels for Rail Footbridges & Station Canopies
Manufactured exclusively by Dura Composites to a patent-pending design with Class B fire rating, our footbridge 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 composite panels are incredibly lightweight and meet the requirements of BS EN 13501, allowing for footbridge parapets to be enclosed with less risk to passengers thanks to the Class B fire rating.
Attractive, woodgrain finish without the maintenance
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 detailing but is more robust and requires significantly less maintenance over time.
Lightweight, easy to install soffits and footbridge cladding panels
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. 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.
Versatile to suit various projects
Dura Composites railway footbridge cladding panels are ideally suited to modular footbridge designs with differing span arrangements that can be modified for each unique location.
The material can also be used to replace worn timber soffit details under station canopies to give a modern clean look to the canopy whilst concealing the unsightly structure underneath. The lower weight nature of the composite means that panels can be quickly and easily removed if the substructure requires inspection or remedial works.
