Station Platforms & Specialist Ancillary Products made from GRP
Low Maintenance GRP Station Platforms & Ancillary Products
Winner of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise Innovation 2020, Dura Platform complies with Network Rail specifications and offers significant improvements over traditional station platform alternatives such as concrete.
Featuring several unique patented features that enable rapid deployment and enhance passenger safety, the modular Dura Platform was developed to solve the challenges faced by the Rail industry as a result of station platforms requiring replacement or refurbishment as they reach the end of their service life, often after more than a century of heavy use.
Also known as Glass Reinforced Polymer or GRP, the composite material from which Dura Platform is made allows contractors to replace or overlay onto damaged or subsided platforms a low maintenance, modular light-weight, height adjustable structure that enhances safety with a rigorously-tested anti-slip surface, in-built water management, integral lines, integral lighting and even snow melting capability.
Achieving huge commerical success over the past 5 years, Dura Platform can span up to an industry-leading 3.2m clear span and is capable of being manually handled, eliminating the need for costly RRVs or heavy lifting equipment. Its hidden fixing system minimises trip hazards, and the platform is also crankable to create an instant 1:40 fall to manage drainage.
Dura Composites also supplies GRP Platform Access Humps (commonly known as ‘Harrington’ Humps) which can be tailored to suit any platform requirements to provide a safe PTI (passenger train interface) for those with mobility challenges.

The best anti-slip surface on the market
Dura Platform features our best ever gritted surface which is tested to over 1 million footfalls (in accordance with BS 7976-2:2002+A1:2013) and outperforms all other products in the market when it comes to durability and anti-slip properties. Our unique high specification composition achieves ultra-low slip potential in both wet and dry conditions and what’s more, the slip potential of the surface is proven to reduce by a mere 5% after 1 million footfalls.
Other GRP Station Platform Products
Recognising the requirement for other lightweight, non-conductive and maintenance free GRP products in and around the station, Dura Composites now also offers a range of ancillary products for train stations such as Decorative GRP Dagger Boards, Wall Linings, End of Platform Gates, GRP Fencing and Debris and Trash Screens. All of our GRP Products are faster to install than conventional materials and offer huge cost lifecyle benefits. For more information on each solution, simply click the images below.
