Leading Premier League Stadium: Phase 1

Fibrelite’s Lightweight Coloured Composite Trench Covers Replace Damaged Steel Covers

Fibrelite’s trench covers have recently been installed at a leading Premier League Stadium to replace damaged steel covers. The damage caused to the previously installed steel covers was caused by heavy vehicles requiring frequent access for concerts. The facilities management team at the Stadium also wanted to solve the manual handling and safety issues which were associated with the cumbersome steel covers previously in use.

Fibrelite can mould its composite covers in nearly any colour or combination of colours. The pigment is introduced directly into the resin during the moulding process, ensuring that the colouring is not merely applied to the surface but evenly and completely infused throughout the cover. This ensures that a coloured Fibrelite cover will not fade or wear over time.
