Fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) is becoming the material of choice for mass transit and rail systems because of its lightweight, prefabricated structures, fast installation, corrosion resistance, low maintenance, and long life. Applications for FRP include platform structures, stairs, trackside equipment, passenger and freight cars, trackside access, and overhead pedestrian walkways.
Large prefabricated FRP panels can stand up to weather, de-icing chemicals and high foot traffic at train stations. These lightweight panels can be installed quickly around train schedules, limiting the inconvenience to commuters. LEARN MORE >>
FRP stair systems are corrosion resistant and maintenance-free. Stair components include non-slip treads and railings. LEARN MORE >>
Third rail coverboards and tie extensions protect personnel from “live” rails by using lightweight composite profiles that do not conduct electricity. LEARN MORE >>
