GRP Rail Access Platforms

No matter which part of the train you need to reach, permanent GRP Rail Access Platforms provide a safe, stable, non-conductive working environment.

From cleaning the train to inspecting or repairing HVAC systems, access platforms that run the length of a train – on both sides and at different levels – mean cleaning and maintenance work can start the moment a vehicle arrives. What’s more, it can be worked on by however many crew members you need, ensuring a fast and cost-effective turnaround without sharing space or compromising safety. Step on Safety has supplied extensive multi-level working platforms to wash and maintenance sheds to rail depots across the UK including Selhurst, Leeds Neville and Cambridge.

Choosing GRP to build permanent vehicle access platforms is a smart choice all round;

  • GRP is low-maintenance and long-lasting
  • GRP Stairs and Walkways are quieter to walk on, helping to reduce noise levels in an already noisy working environment
  • GRP Mesh remains anti-slip even in wet or oily conditions
  • Using Mini or Micro Mesh GRP Grating ensure tools and fixings don’t fall through to lower levels if dropped
  • Regular Access Stairs ensure a speedy evacuation in the event of an emergency
  • Hi-Vis Handrailing clearly identifies potential hazards, gates and stairs
  • Adding Screen Guards to the handrails adds another level of safety to walkway sides that don’t need vehicle access

If a permanent GRP Access Platform isn’t a viable option, you could consider a mobile version.
