    Porthmadog Viaduct - GRP Handrail Project

Project Name: Porthmadog Train Viaduct Upgrade

Location: Porthmadog, North Wales

Watch the video below to learn about the project!

Project Scope: The timber structured train viaduct in Porthmadog, North Wales required some vast upgrades to make it safe for maintenance tasks to be carried out. Ezi Klamp was approached with a design concept in view of replacing the timber handrails with a system that would have a long life span and withstand the damp, salty conditions near the sea.

Ezi Klamp provided a bespoke GRP Handrail solution that could be fastened to the side of the viaduct and create a strong, study guardrail as per the clients specifications. Loading Tests were carried out by Ezi Klamp to ensure that the handrails would comply.

GRP Handrails have a life span of over 25 years and are non-corrosive making them great in this environment. Being 75% lighter than steel options, the components were easy to move around the project.

The handrails were supplied in kit form, posts were pre-cut to length and drilled to save time on site.
