The Modular Platform System by Corus provides a swift

and cost-effective solution to platform construction –

even in the most challenging of site conditions

Modular platform innovation

Fast Installation

Standardised, lightweight components

mean the system can be installed fast

and without lengthy possessions. The

cantilevered design allows the support

structure to be built behind the 1200 mm

line in a green zone.

High quality finish

Galvanised steel and high quality prefinished

components ensure a robust

and long-lasting system that is suitable

for all platform profiles including curved

or tapering platforms.

Platform Specification and Technical Capability

Key features and benefits of the Modular Platform System

by Corus include:

• Unique system adjustability – ensuring on-site buildability

and potential to respond to re-gauging.

• Lightweight structure – ensuring ease and speed of

installation and enabling cost-effective construction over

poor ground and tunnels.

• Designed for construction by a single-trade crew using

minimal mechanised plant – reducing timescales, costs

and safety risks and making the system ideal for use with

third rail or OLE lines and on sites with difficult access.

• Standardised, pre-finished components – minimising

installation time and providing built-in adaptability for future

growth and changes.

• Off-site design and manufacture – minimising track access

requirements and enabling accurate prediction of installation

costs and timescales.

• On-site health & safety benefits – The reduced time frame

on site, single trade platform assembly and majority green

zone work all contribute to a statistically safer and reduced

risk work environment.

Key design features of the Modular Platform System by

Corus include:

• Standardised hollow section components in galvanised

steel provide a column and beam structure to support the

platform deck.

• Cantilevered design ensures majority green zone installation.

• Telescopic platform feet and arms mean the system is

uniquely adjustable in all planes.

• Lightweight components reduce foundation impact and

avoid the need for costly and time-consuming ground

treatment measures. Each component requires only a one or

two person lift.

Modular design enables a dry build using sustainable

construction techniques.

High quality finish to all components contributes to system

robustness and longevity.
