Polybridges

Network Rail & TFL Approved

OCL Polybridges have been approved and have been in use on both TFL and Network Rail infrastructures since 2017; the OCL integrated polybridge system was first designed by OCL in 2017 and was an industry first to incorporate several additional safety features, as a proprietary system including built-in GRP handrails that conform with section K2 of the Building regulations: protection from falling, along with BS 6399 part 1 1996

20 Mins Install Time Only

The OCL Polybridges can be installed with a team of 4 trained personnel in less than 20 min, and the OCL polybridge can be removed from the track environment in less than 15 mins, including fixing and removal of all components; the OCL Polybridges and installation method-ologies can also be made to suit your project track times with manufacture being considered in such a manner that installation can take place without the need for an OLE isolation and all personnel remaining 2.75m away from the OLE at all times during install and instead utilising the line block period or possession period only.

Increase Possession Productivity

With limited time within (NR) possessions and engineering hours (TFL), The OCL polybrdidges undoubtedly assist in maximising your outputs; this is clear when large amounts of Spoil removal is required as part of a Civil engineering project, and multiple heavy and large quantities of materials are needed to travel between platforms for your projects to succeed, project productivity can increase up to 500% from conventional personnel methods of transporting materials and plant.

Reduce Manual Handling Requirements

In line with HSE Guidance, Frequent and heavy lifting and handling can cause back injuries and other injuries; therefore, utilising an OCL polybridge will help reduce lifting and handling requirements hence removing or reducing the risk altogether and keeping your workers healthy and at work. All OCL polybridges have been designed and built with this guidance in mind; For example, a single 10t dumper can travel across the bridge in one 2 minute trip, which would take approximately 400 individual trips by an operative carrying single bags up and over platform structural bridges.

Platform Access For Heavy Machinery

All OCL polybridges will be designed and built to suit the maximum loading requirements of the fully laden machinery that you will use, including the point loading of individual sections and incorporating the height, width and weights and whether the vehicles are tracked or wheeled vehicles, OCL will take the machine specification and then produce a design built around the spec ensuring the correct amount and size of spreader boards are set along with the proper density blocks being chosen to give you precisely what you require.

Pre Fab Track Surveys Carried Out

OCL will provide you with detailed track survey forms for you to peruse and produce well in advance of the fabrication; this will allow you to decide the exact position of the OCL polybridge and to incorporate any additional requirements during the laser cutting of the blocks, such as third rail requirements, additional comms cables or raised chairs that need to be incorporated into the design. Again, this can be done by yourself and your project team or completed in attendance with an OCL engineer that can be provided.

Fully Trained Installation Teams

OCL can provide fully trained and experienced dual PTS and LU certified installation teams for your project to run smoothly, leaving you to concentrate on other parts of your project. Alternatively, OCL can offer in house training by a supervisor upon delivery of your OCL poly-bridge to your labour force.

Bespoke Ssow And Task Briefs Provided

With an experienced Rail team including a chartered CMIOSH experienced Rail safety manager in house at OCL, we offer professional advice and can produce complete installation guidance including SSOW , methodologies and task briefs to suit your infrastructure requirements, whether it is Network Rail, London Underground, DLR, or TFL tramlink, including there relevant Depots and Area A locations we can work with your preferred company templates or provide you the required information to incorporate into you or your client’s documentation.
