New Ultrahord System debuts at Birmingham New Street

Ultrahord is a robust and stable system that makes it ideal for a mainline platform at a busy railway station.

One of Ecogenik's newest systems, Ultrahord has been installed at one of UK's major mainline stations.

Ultrahord uses sturdy polythene bases which can be filled with water for added stability and impact resistance. The versatile bases can be used on a variety of projects including creating traffic lanes as well as  supporting perimeter hoardings.

The system passed both wind and impact resistance tests before being granted Network Rail approval for use on platforms where high speed trains can generate considerable air flow pressures.

The vertical panels used in the Ultrahord system are chosen to meet site conditions and our 100% recycled plastic Ultraspan and SPF panels are compatible. Both the panels and the polythene bases can be 100% recycled for use in new plastic products.

The contractors at Birmingham New Street are Colemans and MACE. Click on the photo to enlarge.

This is one of several nationwide Network Rail projects that Ecogenik's parent company, Kwik-Klik, is involved with. Projects at Edinburgh Waverley Station, London Kings Cross, Cannon Street and Victoria underground stations are also under way.
