Polysafe Level Crossing Systems

Polysafe Level Crossing Systems

Dominating the railway level crossings market in the UK since the mid 1970s, the Bomac design was combined with modern materials in 1990 by Polysafe. The result was a level crossing system that key stakeholders in the rail network were looking for: reliable, durable, cost-effective, easy to maintain and above all – extremely safe.

The same qualities are in demand today with much higher volumes and speeds of road and rail traffic and the Polysafe system continues to meet this demand. Using the latest in Polymer Concrete technology and a design that eliminates problems associated with systems that are supported by sleepers and/or ballast, the Polysafe system has evolved to meet today’s demands.

And because Polysafe is a UK-based company, manufacturing their own product in the UK, turnaround times are quick and flexible to meet the needs of our clients.

A quality product is critical, and the following accreditations held by Polysafe ensure the highest standards are maintained:

  • Network Rail approved supplier – the UK rail system is vast, and inevitably the standards required to be an approved supplier are stringent.
  • BS EN ISO 9001: 2015 – the internationally recognised sign of high quality has been held for many years.
  • RISQS verified supplier – assurance that you are dealing with a company of high integrity and standards.
