Every year, there are over 1.7 billion rail journeys made in the UK, thanks to thousands of rail engineers managing and enhancing the UK’s long-established network. Unfortunately, being a rail engineer carries many risks, albeit working on the tracks, in tunnels or even carrying out a station upgrade. Here at RVT Group, we support rail companies with hazard control solutions, so that engineers remain protected from dust, fumes, gases, noise and other potential health hazards on site.
RVT are certified as a safe and cost-effective provider to the railway industry as verified by our RISQS certification. Over the years we have provided countless ventilation solutions for tunnel projects, such as Box Hill Tunnel, and various fume extraction solutions for thermit welding. We have also provided noise, dust and fume control to protect commuters, local residents and businesses during station upgrades, such as the Waterloo Station upgrade.
RVT can also provide; fire resistant acoustic barriers, pile wrap attenuators, dust extraction systems, welding filters, diesel filter kits, noise monitors, dust monitors and gas monitors.Hire Equipment

“We have used Soundex® acoustic barriers for our hydrodemolition works to ensure noise levels were reduced to allowable tolerances. The quilts proved very effective as we managed to carry out the hydrodemolition close to the station concourse while ensuring noise levels were acceptable to the station management.”
“The input from RVT Group contributed to the success of the Queen St Cowlairs Tunnel project, both in terms tender advice and providing a workable solution to our ventilation problem. The bespoke ventilation system provided effective control, backed with invaluable management support right through the project and most importantly safeguarded the wellbeing of the site personnel working within the tunnel. This brought the Project peace of mind, and meant we could get on with the job with confidence”
