    Station Platforms

    We welcome the opportunity to discuss your environmental sustainability objectives early in the procurement process and are happy to detail the significant embedded carbon savings that can be made by choosing our d² station platform and related products over other materials on the market.

    Make huge asset life savings and future proof your station infrastructure.

    With almost a billion passenger rail journeys made in the UK each year, the stations where people start and end their journeys are a key focus for improvements to the passenger experience. Changes to rolling stock require longer platforms, whilst Victorian platform canopy installations and pedestrian footbridges require replacement or refurbishment as they reach the end of their service life.

    With a best-in-class reputation for delivering on even the most challenging rail projects, we design, manufacture and supply sustainable low-maintenance composite product solutions that play their part in helping run a safe and efficient railway for passengers.

    Tackling station safety issues of platform gaps and stepping distances.

    Our modular GRP Dura Platform allows contractors to replace or overlay onto damaged or subsided platforms a low maintenance, modular, lightweight, height adjustable structure that enhances safety and can reduce any PTI gaps to comply with current standards, improving the passenger experience.

    Dura Platform complies with Network Rail specifications, boasting unparalleled efficiency in platform installation and a remarkable reduction of up to 65% in installation time. Our most popular variant is Dura Platform 40, which serves as the foundation for two installation methods, depending on your project needs. Our GRP/Steel Hybrid Platform solution is primarily for new platforms and extensions, while our collaboration with Hammond ecs Ltd utilises the Mountbridge™ system, which achieves overlays and re-gauging with ease.

    Resilient, robust materials that minimise maintenance requirements.

    Beyond the platform, our other composite station solutions minimise the requirement for maintenance over or across live infrastructure.
    Our lightweight, durable composite dagger boards achieve a EN13501 Class B – s1 d0 fire rating that’s ideal for canopy projects as a fit-and-forget solution. We also design and supply award-winning footbridge treads and landings, end-of-platform gates, steps and fencing – all made from our advanced d² product range with its low embodied carbon and full recyclability.


    Saves Time & Cost

    Dura Platform can cut platform installation time by up to 65% – benefitting passengers who are able to re-access the station sooner and saving labour costs for rail contractors.

    Easy Access

    Easy Upgrade for Limited Access

    Efficient in locations where traditional build systems are not suitable due to limited access, restricted possession times and/or passenger disruption concerns.


    Fall Management

    Versatile platform systems that allow for easy height and pitch adjustment, incorporating a 1 in 40 fall to aid water runoff.

    Platform Solutions

    We employ two railway platform installation methods, both utilising our advanced platform surface, Dura Platform 40. Whatever your platform requirements, our solutions cover any scenario.

    • Platform Panels

      Dura Platform can span up to an industry-leading 3.2m clear span and is capable of being man-handled, eliminating the need for costly RRVs or heavy lifting equipment. Our latest innovation for Dura Platform includes the option of a solid surface on the 600mm plank which removes the need for longitudinal cover plates to cover the fixings and provides a uniform, aesthetically pleasing finish.

      • Hidden CAM fixing system minimises trip hazards.
      • New advanced Tri-Tone anti-slip surface.
      • Sustainable product due to extensive 60 year design life.

    • Mountbridge™ for Overlays & Regauging

      The Mountbridge™ system from Hammond ecs ltd is an adjustable, extended lifecycle platform upgrade system that overlays the existing platform structure to eliminate PTI stepping distance issues at stations. This reduces the time, cost, mess and disruption associated with excavation and removal of existing structures.

      • Crankable to create an instant 1:40 fall to manage drainage.
      • System allows preparation work to begin during engineering hours.
      • Particularly efficient in locations where traditional build systems are not suitable.

    • GRP/Steel Hybrid for New Builds & Extensions

      Recommended for new build platform construction and platform extensions, our Queens Award winning GRP/Steel Hybrid solution. Combines the strength of a steel foundation with a rapid deployment hard-wearing GRP Dura Platform surface.

      • Requires fewer track possessions than conventional re-build approach.
      • Versatile system manages panel ‘creep’, curves and falls.
      • Enables seamless transitions from old to new platforms.
