Client: London Underground
Type of works: supply of Jaymart's Grime-Rail Firefighter, a fire-resistant entrance-matting system.
Jaymart Rubber & Plastics Ltd, established in 1967, has been supplying the London Underground for over 20 years, since the Kings Cross fire disaster in 1987. After the disaster, London Underground contacted Jaymart to develop and produce entrance matting to their exacting specification, and they were supplied with Jaymarts Grime-Rail Firefighter, a specialist fire-resistant low smoke emission Vamac 7300 ribbed rubber/aluminium entrance-matting system. This product is particularly suitable where fire safety, low smoke and toxic fume emission are of critical importance, and Jaymart has recently re-launched the open construction variant with specialist fire-retardant strips also on the underside to accommodate the London Undergrounds special drainage grid system.
Grime-Rail Firefighter is the specified entrance matting for all London Underground section 12 stations. Recently supplied Underground stations include:
- Stratford Station
- Wood Green Station
- Euston Square Station
- Dalston Station
- Shoreditch Station
- Hoxton Station
- High Barnet Station
- Mile End Station
- Aldgate East Station
Grime-Rail Firefighter 15mm gauge is available in open or closed construction, and is DDA compliant for use by wheelchair users.
Also available in Jaymarts vast range of specialist floorings, mats and mattings is Alligator-Track for non-section 12 stations and many other public and commercial building entrances.
