St Pancras International

The Eurostar train connecting the UK to mainland Europe runs into and out of St Pancras Railway Station in London. As with all passenger walkways it was essential that walking to and from platforms and through the concourse was safe with minimal risk of slips or trips.

 

Preformed instant flat sheets from the RonaGrip Instants range were used to provide instant and safe access to passengers immediately after installation.

 

Fixed with a fast cure adhesive, or mechanically, or both, the flat sheets are available in a variety of sizes and colours, together with stair nosings, ladder rungs and other high grip finishes.
