Growing deployment of GRP Anti Trespass Panels
This week has seen the completion of an ATP matrix on LNW Route, at a problematic area in the North West, where all the timber anti trespass needed replacing as it was insufficient in stopping people from walking over the track, . The decision was made by Network Rail, to specify the lightweight anti trespass panels provided by HR Kilns Ltd. The lightweight GRP panels, have considerable advantages when compared with other products , not least manual handling benefits, Health & Safety benefits and the general flexibility of the product. This particular site includes point rodding in 2 directions combined with a TPWS toast rack, deflector plates on the level crossing and other obstacles. A job well done by the team on the ground.
Lightweight GRP panels are becoming increasingly popular with Network Rail and contractors as the product of choice. Fully fire retardant panels are also available – currently these are the only fire retardant panels available and accepted for use by Network Rail.
