All our teams are experienced, highly qualified and will deliver the most cost-effective solution.
GCP Eliminator System
We are an approved and highly experienced contractor of the GCP ELIMINATOR® waterproofing system – formerly Stirling Lloyd. This is a cold, spray-applied solution that can outlast the life of the structure — reducing future maintenance and associated costs and traffic disruptions. The ELIMINATOR® system was developed for the protection of concrete and steel bridge decks and has an unparalleled track record with thousands of structures waterproofed successfully throughout the world.
We can offer the HYTEC system – another highly advanced product from GCP. This is a loose laid, flexible polypropylene sheet waterproofing membrane that has exceptional physical performance properties. It was developed specifically for fast track limited possessions for rail operators when deck and climate conditions are uncertain, and for masonry arch bridges where no continuous deck exists. HYTEC is fast to apply, offers high tear and puncture resistance for long lasting protection and weather tolerance to allow year round application.
We have over 10 years experience in implementing the INTEGRITANK waterproofing system, protecting critical infrastructure. It a fully reactive elastomeric system based on ESSELAC, a unique advanced resin technology. The INTEGRITANK system was developed to provide a tough, durable and fully bonded protective waterproofing membrane that is resistant to backfill, hydrostatic pressure and long-term immersion in water. This approach can be used on many major construction projects including roofing, basement roofs and podium decks.
Metrail can supply and install multiple types of bridge expansion joints (or movement joints). They are all designed to enable continuous traffic between two structures and control structural movements that arise from creep and shrinkage effects, temperature variations or deformations under live load - the effectiveness of bridge expansion joints has a direct impact on the life expectancy of a bridge. With our high standards of delivery in this area, Metrail can help to prevent the ingress of water and road de-icing salts into bridge structures that can weaken the infrastructure.
SAFETRACK SC is a liquid applied, fast curing, UV stable, slip-resistant road colour coating based on advanced resin technology. Metrail use this approach to provide a highly visible, skid resistant demarcation coating. We use it for projects such as the London Underground, bus lanes, cycle lanes, and traffic calming.
This is a liquid applied system designed for localised areas requiring anti-skid. It is based on the GCP resin developments and is suitable for the rapid, reinstatement of damaged or compromised road surfaces or for the reinstatement of anti-skid surfacing following maintenance work. SAFETRACK® HW is a Type 1 certified BBA/HAPAS High Friction Surfacing System that also conforms to Clause 924 of the UK Specification for Highway Works (March 1998) for Resin Based High Skid Resistant Surface Treatments.
