Barking Flyover - FRP Parapet Screens

Barking Flyover - FRP Parapet Screens

Pipex px® are experts in the design, supply, manufacture and deliverance of world-class, corrosion resistant Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) products for the challenging requirements of the UK’s rail market sector, and have consistently provided our advanced, long-life solutions for industry leaders Network Rail.

Staff safety & fast track installation are key factors for any railway upgrade project as demonstrated by recent improvements to the Barking flyover near London, UK.

The flyover runs adjacent to overhead power cables and parapet screening was required in order to provide adequate protection for personnel traversing the length of rail-track.

Pipex px® supplied, manufactured and delivered 158 linear metres of non-conductive FRP, interconnecting  parapet screens, fabricated utilising a combination of EXTREN® FRP profiles and DURADEK® I-6000 FRP grating.


206 screens were fabricated completely offsite at our innovative HQ facilities in Plymouth and this ability to facilitate fast track installation was vital as the FRP parapet screens required installation during a 2 night time possession window, minimising any disruption to normal rail operations.
