Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) composite rail platforms give transportation agencies a corrosion-resistant structure that can stand up to weather, de-icing chemicals, and high foot traffic at train stations. Lightweight panels can be installed quickly around train schedules, limiting the inconvenience to commuters. CCG's mass transit rail platforms are known for their fast installation as well as being long-lasting. Composite rail platforms are designed to be zero-maintenance structures.
In addition to FRP's material advantages, CCG offers a variety of features, including crown or cross-slope surfaces, non-slip polymer overlay, warning tactiles at platform edges, curbs, embedded attachment points, drain scuppers and notch-outs for supplemental structures. Our customizable double tee panels offer tailored design and easy installation for both existing and new structures.
FRP double tee stems can be customized to meet specific size requirements, so they can be full-length or transition, similar to dapped end beams for traditional concrete double tees. In addition, designs can be modified for easy integration into existing structures and specialized triple tees can be manufactured for applications with depth restrictions.
FRP material is extremely resistant to corrosion, chemicals and harsh environmental conditions. While concrete can experience significant wear if it’s exposed to deicing chemicals, FRP material can withstand these compounds easily, making it ideal for use on platforms and walkways.
FRP materials are manufactured to meet NFPA 130 & ASTM E-84 Class 1 standards for fire-resistance.
