FRP Staircare SC-R Project

Downer EDI Rail Crossings


Existing hardwood timber rail cross overs have distorted and become slippery especially when wet.

The Task

Design, manufacture, supply and install Staircare SC-R rail cross over made form FRP H-Beam supports and custom made grating with silicon carbide anti slip grit with UV protection. Remove and dispose of existing hardwood cross overs. Supply engineering sign off, design and as build drawings for 62 pedestrian rail cross overs.


The StairCare FRP track cross over conform with:

  • AS 1657-2013; fixed platforms, walkways, stairways and ladders – Design, Construction and Installation.
  • AS 4586:2013; Slip Resistance Classification of New Pedestrian Surface Materials.
  • AS 1428.1-2009; Design for Access and Mobility.
  • ESC 520; Level Crossings – Rail Corp Engineering Standard, Version 2.3 Issued July 2010.


Staircare worked in close consultation with Downer AMC Service Engineer Rail and the Facility Support Team Leader.

This Cooperation ensured a safe, smooth, efficient and on time completion of all works.

FRP Platforms & Crossovers

Platforms & Crossovers

Staircare SC-R platforms and Crossovers are entirely made from FRP composite material, they are non-conductive and provide the ultimate in corrosions resistance. SC-R grating, stair treads, structural shapes and handrails combine to an FRP system that provides safe and versatile access.
