    Project Name: Ezi Klamp’s GRP Handrail supplied to Barking Riverside project

    Location: Barking Riverside, East London

    It’s been a pleasure to install over 2.5km of Ezi Klamp’s GPR Handrail system along the new track extension at Barking Riverside”

    The large-scale development at Barking Riverside in East London includes the construction of 12,000 new homes, a university, schools and many shops. With a heavy increase in residents to the area, the need for public transport routes is critical. The famous London Underground system located beneath the city of London is an invaluable transport method for commuters, Londoner’s & tourists.

    Transport for London made the decision that an extension to the train routes to include this new area would be required for quick and convenient transport for the public.

    Barking Riverside Project - GRP Handrails

    A new 1.5 km long concrete viaduct and train station were created for the electrified railway extension. Ezi Klamp systems supplied over 2.5 km of grey GRP handrails to both sides of the viaduct and many GRP Gratings access steps and landings to allow maintenance personnel to do their tasks safely and efficiently.

    Ezi Klamp also supplied 18 self-closing gates, which were created from our GRP tube & fittings and the revolutionary Truclose hinge.

    One of the main benefits of Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) Handrails is their non-conductive properties, meaning they are the perfect solution near electrified railway lines. Being a lightweight system, the components are easy to move around the site and assemble, at 75% lighter than the steel equivalent, GPR Handrails are easier to install, especially when working in hazardous conditions such as at height.

    As well as being Non-Conductive, GRP is also corrosion, chemical and fire resistant; and Non-Magnetic, making it the best choice for those wet areas, Marine vessels, Water treatment works and Offshore wind & oil facilities. Ezi Klamp’s GRP handrails are Gratings, just a small part of our GRP solutions that include GRP Fence panels and Network Rail approved Catch Pit Lids
