For more than a decade, Armor-Deck® has been raising the standard for transit safety. Passenger safety remains at the forefront of our designs, while maintaining functionality and aesthetically pleasing installations. Years of experience working closely with major transit authorities have allowed us to gain expertise experience and understanding within the industry.
Armor-Deck® is a state-of-the-art transit platform, its panels are composed of a structural reinforced polymer composite formed into a pre-cast panel incorporating a monolithic Diamond-Tek granite wearing surface. Armor-Deck® Systems are manufactured by the makers of Armor-Tile® and boast a factory installed “Diamond Hard” vitrified polymer composite.
Armor-Deck® can be installed with minimal labor, eliminating heavy equipment because of our lightweight system. Our innovative transit safety solutions reduce construction costs, installation time, and even critical path scheduling. Additionally, our products are zero maintenance because Armor-Deck® is corrosion and chemical resistant and can easily withstand vehicular loading. Armor-Deck® has an estimated lifespan of 75 – 100 years, creating a long-lasting and permanent transit safety solution.
The industry leading Armor-Deck® heated platform with Nexatherm is the most cost-effective choice for your transit needs, as it is only activated during snow, frost, and ice, resulting in low energy usage during snowfall hours and eliminates traditional costly Winter-time idling. Armor-Deck® also reduces platform damage by eliminating the use of salts or other de-icing chemicals and physical damage from winter service, therefore extending the life of transit platforms. The high-tech sensor in Armor-Deck® detects temperature, snow, ice and frost without special infrastructure. The composite dome shape helps ensure reliable snow and ice detection as it prevents snow accumulation around the sensor.
Ultra-light weight Armor-Deck® panels can reduce up to 85% of the concrete weight. This saves money on erection and substructure. Armor-Deck® enhanced design of detectable warning surface provides a safer and more accessible walking surface for all disability groups and more, including mobility impaired, the elderly and visually impaired to name a few. Armor-Deck® is UV-stable and comes with a twenty-five year structural and corrosion resistant warranty. Armor-Deck® Systems are manufactured by the makers of Armor-Tile® and boast a factory installed “Diamond Hard” vitrified polymer composite.
