The client was Network Rail. The aim of the project was to replace the old rooftop walkway with an alternative material to steel. The walkway had to be
elevated to a height of 250mm to match the door access level.
The old rooftop walkway was either non-existent or in a very poor state of repair. The client required a light weight product that would allow for drainage,
and would further provide a highly visible walkway.

to size ensuring that they would fit between the main support beams of the building. Steps were supplied with highly visible yellow GRP nosing at the
Finally, pedestals were supplied to elevate the grating from the roof to allow drainage, and additionally to match the level of the exit doors.

easily handled by two personnel.
