In a recent project, the expert team at COBA Flooring collaborated with Kier and Volkerfitzpatrick to provide a comprehensive solution for ensuring safety and improving aesthetics at the Luton Dart station. By supplying GRP sheets, GRP stair treads, and entrance matting. We covered nearly 350m2 of GRP Sheet, 53 GRP Steps, 40m2 Matting, we also supplied them 2 x bespoke steel ramps (which we sub contracted out) for Luton Dart.
The Luton DART is an innovative passenger transit system, connecting Luton Airport Parkway station to London Luton Airport in under 4 minutes. The new link replaces the original bus shuttle, delivering a significantly better passenger experience to the airport.
Enhancing Safety with GRP Flooring:
To mitigate the risk of slips and falls on external pedestrian stairs and walkways, COBA Flooring recommended the use of GRP (glass-reinforced plastic) flooring. The COBAGRiP® range of products, crafted from a durable fibreglass composite, offers numerous benefits as safe floor surfaces that comply with health and safety requirements. The coarse grit surface of COBAGRiP® ensures a high level of slip resistance even in wet, oily, or icy conditions. By installing GRP sheets and stair treads, Luton Dart can significantly reduce the likelihood of accidents and provide a safe passage for passengers.
GRP Stair Treads- A Complete Solution:
COBA Flooring’s GRP stair treads were the perfect choice for Luton Dart’s requirements. Designed to cover the entire step area, the treads provide effective stair protection while offering a gritty finish that enhances traction for passengers entering the building. With their robust construction and slip-resistant properties, the stair treads serve as a reliable and durable solution that meets the demands of high foot traffic volumes at the station. By installing COBAGRiP® stair treads, Luton Dart ensures passenger safety while maintaining a visually appealing environment.
