It’s the first impression that counts, and AW Rail have been providing painting services across the network for a varied clientele. Whether that’s a simple coat of paint to a window or a full refresh of a large station building, we have the experience and knowledge to complete all types of projects.

Our teams have worked on all types of properties that sit within the railway environment, it doesn’t matter whether it is a small branch line ticket office, or a mainline station refresh we can deliver unbeatable results which are not only pleasing on the eye but hard wearing and comply with health & safety requirements as well as those specifications set out by Network Rail.

Our project/contract managers take the time to understand every aspect of a project, it’s in our interest as well as our clients to fully understand the scope and requirements of works meaning that we will never let you down when it comes to the finished product.

Not only do we provide a high level of service, but we ensure that the teams allocated to work on your projects come with an unblemished record in safety standards and classifications. We understand just how essential it is to have a safety-conscious team working on your site, particularly in high traffic areas like train station platforms and their surroundings

Painting a station or line side building is not just about walls and windows, one of the biggest issues that these environments suffer from is the level of footfall. This results in easily damaged flooring and more importantly health and safety warnings. These can quickly become scuffed and dulled because of the sheer number of feet (and station vehicles) passing over them every hour of the day. We are competent in applying premium, industry-leading resistant paint to suit any kind of environment. We don’t skimp when it comes to safety on the railways.

We’re approved applicators of the latest commercial coatings and offer a range of cutting-edge solutions to meet your specifications and environmental challenges including intumescent, fire-retardant coatings, anti-graffiti, hygiene, and coatings for uPVC and metal coatings.

The scope of works that we can provide is exhaustive, we have worked on small ticket offices to the refurbishment of entire mainline stations. We are particularly skilled when it comes to the refurbishment of metal structures, bridges, walkways, signal gantries, barriers, railings and more, all done to Network Rails specification for protective coatings and sealants for use on the railway.

Our operatives are fully qualified to ensure the correct application of any coating and to maintain a safe working practice whilst on site. We have PTS, IPAF, PASMA, ICORR operatives at our disposal as well as safety critical staff to ensure works are carried out safely.

We don’t just get asked to provide our painting and decorating services for the railway industry, with a talented pool of operatives to call on we can attend to the refurbishment of bridges, buildings, walls both internally and externally working in such sectors as Education, Local Authority, Hospitality, Retail and more.
