GRP Platforms, Steps & Walkways

Lightweight, Non-Conductive, Earth Free Solutions

iLECSYS Rail supply and manufacture a range of GRP platforms suitable for industrial and commercial environments. Our modular range of platforms are manufactured using Fiberline Composites high grade E23 structural profile. All structural profiles are made from non-corrosive materials and therefore offer excellent resistance to general environmental factors and a variety of chemicals. The materials have a much longer life expectancy than conventional construction materials and are virtually maintenance free. GFRP is far lighter than other materials resulting in easier deliveries, assembly and installation. Reduced mechanical handling risks and a reduced requirement for RRV's (Road Rail Vehicles), reducing costs, rail movements and potential possession over runs. 

Fiberline structural profiles are all certified to the European structural FRP standard EN13706 ensuring that all products meet or exceed minimum certified criteria. Like steel types are graded by their yield strength (ie. S235) in the European structural steel standard (EN10025), the grade designation system in EN13706 is based on the elasticity (ie. E23) and specifies everything from testing and tolerances to surface quality and mechanical tolerances. 

Our bespoke GRP platforms are not only used within the rail infrastructure but can be employed for water treatment works, chemical process plants, offshore structures, power plants and many other industrial applications.

  • GRP KEY FEATURES

  Safety - GFRP (Glass Fibre Reinforced Polyester) is safer than more conventional materials. No risk of electric shock, removing the requirement for earth-bonding.

  Lightweight - GFRP is lightweight which allows for easy delivery, assembly and installation. Reduced mechanical handling risks and no requirement for RRV's. 

  Turnkey - iLECSYS Rail provide a complete package from ground investigation, structural design, manufacture and site installation. 

  Foundations - The fundamental element of the platform system is the foundation solution. iLECSYS Rail are working in collaboration with Strucsol to deliver the innovative RapidRoot system. The ping solution is hand portable and again does not require RRV's or possessions for installation. 

  Quality - iLECSYS Rail use Fiberline E23 structural profiles for all GFRP platforms, all profiles are compliant to EN 13706 (part 1, 2 & 3)

  Efficient Installation - The modular GFRP platform is designed to be installed with minimal impact on train operations. All parts can be hand carried to site. All assembly can be safely done track-side with reduced possession times. 

  Maintenance - Reduced maintenance cost over the life-cycle of the project, easy to disassemble and move structure if required.

  Environmentally Sustainability - Corporate dedication, constant process optimisation and energy efficient material make GRP structural profiles an environmentally friendly choice, leaving less than half the carbon footprint compared to conventional construction materials.
