FRP Staircare SC-R Project

SC-R Top Cover FRP Grating Panel Walkway


Bexley North Train Station Accessibility Upgrade for Arenco (NSW) Pty Limited

The Task

Replace existing concrete footbridge panels with fibreglass panels. Design, supply and install Staircare SC-R top cover FRP grating Panels 38 x 38 square mesh with heavy duty load bars and 5mm thick top cover plate. The silicon carbide anti slip grit provides a Class P5 slip rating. The 1476mm wide SC-R panels had to be load tested and complied with AS1657-2018 Appendix D and the clients’ specific requirements for 5kPa distributed panel load. FRP top cover grating panels have been installed on FRP 50 x 50 angle supports to achieve a smooth pedestrian walking surface.


Staircare SC-R top cover grating walkway conforms to:

  • AS 1657:2018: Fixed platforms, walkways, stairways and ladders – Design, construction and installation.
  • AS 4586:2013: Slip resistance classification of new pedestrian surface materials
  • AS1170.1-2002: Structural design actions.


The entire 40 metre long concrete walkway was replaced with SC-R top cover FRP grating over two nights. Staircare worked closely with Arenco site personnel, this cooperation ensured a safe, smooth, efficient and on time completion to achieve a top quality finish.
