Composite Flooring

FRP Floor Panels for Light Rail & Public Transit

Kenway Composites is rapidly becoming a leader in fire safe composite flooring and panel systems for light rail and public transit vehicles. Building on 50 years of composite engineering and manufacturing experience, we developed a lightweight, durable composite floor panel system. Our composite floor panel system provides excellent fire, smoke, and toxicity performance that addresses the problems inherent in traditional plymetal flooring. Therefore, our FRP floor panels are not susceptible to failures caused by moisture which are commonly associated with plymetal design.

Kenway’s composite floor panels are ideal for new manufacturing along with repair and refurbishment of existing fleets. We work with both OEM’s and fleet maintenance centers. Our staff of engineers can design custom solutions that solve many problems prevalent with current floor designs. The lightweight design makes installation faster and easier. Our floors are stronger and lighter than conventional designs. As a result, we provide lower maintenance costs and improved energy efficiency or fuel economy.
