Step on Safety’s Rail access solutions

Since receiving a commission from Transport for London back in 2009 for 800 Pit Ladders, Step on Safety has enjoyed a close working relationship with the rail industry, providing GRP safety products and solutions for trackside and depots. From our QuartzGrip® Anti-Slip Stair Tread Covers to a 300m Depot Wash Shed Access Gantry constructed from GRP Open Mesh Grating and GRP Structural Profiles, no detail is too small, no project too large.

All our solutions are fabricated from GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) also known as fibreglass or FRP. GRP is as strong as the steel equivalents but is corrosion-free, chemical-resistant and non-conductive, with load tolerances that meet or exceed the Network Rail specifications. It’s relatively lightweight so can be manoeuvred into remote or awkward locations manually. All our Stairs and Flooring have our QuartzGrip® anti-slip finish that is effective in wet, icy or oily conditions. It never fades or chips, is impact resistant and will last decades with little to NO maintenance.

Where possible, every item is built at our Suffolk headquaters, carefully quality checked and then transported to your site where our specialist installation teams will install it, making any adjustments necessary to ensure a perfect fit. Alternatively, we can simply deliver for your own teams to put into place – over 70 Bespoke Embankment Staircases have been supplied in modules to locations throughout Scotland for rail engineers to easily install.
