Fibrelite’s super light duty trench covers have been selected for an onshore gas valve plant in the UK. The gas valve plant consists of two buildings where Fibrelite’s super light duty range of panels (FM45SH-A15) were selected to be installed over a series of cable trenches.

During the installation, Fibrelite’s technical team worked closely with the contractor from the design stage of the panels to delivery ensuring that the product was of the highest specification and the products where installed within the required project timeframes.

Sophisticated Highly Specialised Material

Fibrelite is the world leading manufacturer of Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) composite manhole covers and trench panels. This sophisticated and highly specialised material is fast becoming recognised as the more effective modern alternative to traditional materials such as heavy steel and concrete.

Benefits over the more traditional, technologically inferior metal covers:
  • Lightweight for easy and safe manual removal
  • Non-slip properties equivalent to a high grade road
  • Chemically inert and corrosion resistant

No Compromise on Performance


Upon request, Fibrelite can provide a semi-custom solution. This means that the panel dimensions, internal stiffeners and fibre architecture can be altered to optimise the performance of each panel based on project specific design criteria.

A clear advantage over cheap and low quality off the shelf products flooding the market.
