Context

Network Rail operators required a fencing system that would assist in protecting people from the dangers of high-speed trains passing through stations.

This type of barrier is a key factor in reducing the chances of people in distress from accessing tracks serving high-speed trains.

Product supplied

Bespoke Mid Platform Safety Railing complete with manual sliding gates were supplied by Barkers Engineering in a bid to make station platforms safer.

Network Rail decided on 1.5m high Mid Platform Safety Railing to ensure maximum possible performance, which were designed and manufactured in-house. The system was then installed between platforms to prevent public movement between lines serving stopping trains, and adjacent lines serving non-stop, high-speed trains.

The anti-climb railings effectively discourage the public from approaching tracks and reduce accessibility to high-speed platforms. The barrier also gives station staff precious extra time to act if they notice a person in distress. Securely lockable manual sliding gates were also provided to enable operators to maximise station capacity during peak times.
