Ebbsfleet International Station

A range of access panels manufactured by leading producer Howe Green, have been fitted internally and externally at the domestic section of Ebbsfleet International Station, a station serving SouthEastern Rail's new high speed rail service.
Connecting the county of Kent to Stratford and St. Pancras, the new rail link will significantly reduce commuters' journey times. Running on the same tracks as the Eurostar, it is a leading project for SouthEastern Rail and marks Britain's first domestic high speed rail service. As such a prominent station, it was expected that flooring would be subjected to foot traffic from tens of thousands of passengers. This led to the specification of Howe Green's hardwearing access panels.

Following a competitive tender process, rail infrastructure specialist YJLi was selected to construct the platforms of the new station whilst the KN Group undertook the construction and fitting out of the station extension building.

To provide access covers for vital internal under floor services in the station building, 12 of Howe Green’s 7500 series panels were chosen in a range of sizes and installed by the KN Group. On the external platforms, three 500 mm x 500 mm and seven 800 x 500 mm access panels were installed by YJLi to cover railway communications and services.

Suitable for any situation where heavy loading is required – they can accommodate a 5 tonne pressure from a pneumatic tyre – they were ideal for the heavy foot traffic the station expected.

The panels were tailor-made by Howe Green to the various sizes that were needed – a service provided by the company with no time or cost constraint. Set into the substrate, where they sit flush with flooring so as not to present a trip hazard, they can be easily raised with the set of lifting keys provided. To create a discrete finish, the access panels feature a recessed lid enabling tiling or other floor finishes, to be paid over the panels. This allowed the KN Group to create a seamless finish for the tiled floor surface of the station building.

As well as being durable and workable, the panels offer the best in cleanliness. Double sealed to prevent their penetration by dirt and grease, the panels feature stainless steel baseplates and reinforcements to prevent corrosion. The panels were especially suited to external usage as they have high resistance to weather exposure.
