Our Fibreglass Refuge Platforms can be Supplied Fully Fabricated or Shipped in Component Form
Fibreglass Refuge Access Platforms by Dura Composites
As a major supplier to the rail sector, Dura Composites understands the importance of delivering high performance and low maintenance solutions that help increase safety for drivers and maintenance workers.
Our extensive product range includes refuge platforms made from strong and durable GRP which can be employed by guards, train drivers and cleaning crews for safe access to (or exit from) trains during maintenance or evacuation.
Modular Access Platforms Made from GRP
Our Modular Access Platforms are constructed from high strength Glass Reinforced Plastic.
These platforms can be configured to suit a wide range of maintenance requirements. Low maintenance and easy to handle, designs can be adapted for both front and side train access in areas such as sidings and traincare depots.
GRP Handrail Systems
A Robust, Maintenance Free Fall Protection Barrier
Glass Reinforced Polymer (GRP) for a Maintenance Free Handrailing System
Dura Composites’ GRP Handrail Systems made from either our market-leading Dura Profile or our GRP Modular Key Clamp components can also be added to provide a robust, maintenance free, non-conductive fall protection barrier.
Panel Thickness and Mesh Size Information
Dura Grating is available in Standard Mesh, Mini Mesh and Micro Mesh versions for maximum versatility. Dura Grating is a market leading fibreglass grating solution which is designed to withstand the harshest of industrial and commercial environments. GRP Dura Grating requires little or no maintenance and its lightweight nature makes it easier to handle and install than metal gratings. Dura Composites offers a bespoke cut to size service prior to delivery for quick and easy install or if you prefer, our GRP grating can be cut on site using standard power tools with a diamond tipped blade. Dura Grating has one of the highest degrees of slip-resistances ever measured for a walking surface especially in wet, oily and icy conditions and is a suitable surface for rail walkways, crossings, stair tread projects, refuge platforms, access structures and much more.
British Standard Slip Resistance test results for structures fitted with fibreglass grating walkway stair tread surfaces
The B.S. 4592 test was devised to test and assess the slip resistance of industrial type flooring, intended for use in water and wet areas. A co-efficient of friction (CoF) is calculated by determining the mean angle of inclination that an operator can safely maintain when the flooring is subjected to a continuous stream of water.
Dura Composites offers you a very high quality and versatile product range and our products are regularly tested – passing recognised international and national standards.
Angular Quartz is integrally bonded to the top surface of our FRP gratings, which produces an extremely hard-wearing surface that greatly enhances the anti-slip properties & durability of the grating product.
