Coloured Trench Covers

A local UK council has specified Fibrelite FM45 trench panels for a busy city-centre market. A series of 8 trenches were previously covered by traditional concrete panels but with constant heavy foot traffic the covers had crumbled and created trip hazards. What's more the concrete was extremely heavy so difficult and unsafe to remove. Metal covers were considered as a replacement but the following benefits meant Fibrelite's GRP composite covers were preferred:
  • Lightweight for easy and safe manual removal
  • Non-slip properties equivalent to a high grade road
  • Will not corrode/rust
  • Will not be stolen as there is zero resale value to the scrap market
  • Chemically inert
  • Extremely strong and durable
  • Significantly less CO2 footprint in production and transpor
British Manufacturing at its Best

With many lengths, widths and depths of trench covers available together with the option of adding colour and logos, Fibrelite’s trench covers offer an extremely versatile solution. All covers are BS EN 124 load rated, from A15 (1.5 tonne, pedestrian traffic) to E600 (60 tonne). Suitable for many applications ranging from stadiums, water sewerage treatment plants, retail, industrial and commercial developments to airports, ports and dockyards.
