Incorperating Unipart Dorman's lightweight hinged post for the latest generation of Integrated Signals , FLI can supply a Laydown Platform on just two piles or a single screw pile mounting. Both products are form 3 approved and allow the entire installation to be completed within a single shift.
Straight Signal Posts
FLI offers signal posts with a range of maintenance platform sizes, anti-climb and OLE guards, mounted on traditional concrete or a single screw pile or multiple piles.
Network Rail approved designs, Form 2 and 3 (A and B). Our standard cantilevered multi-LOC platforms only require four H or screw piles, with a single pile mounting as an option. GRP hybrid platforms and our ‘Mini’ LOCs are also available as off-the-shelf products. More information on these and other platforms is in our Staging Platforms brochure.
Single Pile Foundations
LOC platforms can be mounted on a single 355 FLI screw pile. With just one steel pile there is a cost reduction for both product and installation. One four metre pile in normal ground can be installed in minutes with the entire installation finished in just one possession. One foundation pile is much easier to work around existing services, obstructions and structures, as well as minimising delays when installing in difficult ground.
FLI's refuge platforms can be installed either as fully assembled units, or 'piece small' for green zone working to reduce possessions. Green zone working can extend to the foundations using FLI's hand installed screw piles, greatly reducing overall costs.
Steel foundations enable straightforward complete installations on sloping sites in a single shift. Screw piles can be installed with an RRV in poor ground and require no curing time. They meet sustainability criteria with a much lower carbon footprint than concrete and unlike driven piles, are easily recovered, delivering a 100% recycle rate.
