Traditionally, agencies have used concrete, wood, and steel to build rail platform decking, but all these materials degrade in response to different threats. These factors have recently encouraged rail platform operators to turn to fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composite decking material: a lightweight, durable solution that resists corrosion and wear, and holds up well against weather extremes, ice buildup, and deicing chemicals.
In this eBook, Riding the Rails with FRP, we explore a few of the most prevalent uses of FRP in rail platform design, and we provide some case studies on how our FRP products have benefited stations that regularly deal with harsh weather conditions. Topics include:
