Fibrelite Supply Trench Covers for M4 East Bound at Newport

Fibrelite’s range of covers offer easy access for operators who regularly need to access these chambers that house communication cables and CCTV camera cables. Due to the nature of what is underground the covers need to be easy access for operators who regularly check and monitor the equipment. For operators working at the roadside in all weathers and often at night, ease of access and safety are critical.

Fibrelite’s access covers are lightweight, durable and very strong. Every Fibrelite cover is manufactured using high technology Resin Transfer Moulded production methods to create a highly engineered, monolithic composite product.

Sophisticated Highly Specialised Material

Fibrelite is the world leading manufacturer of glass reinforced plastic (GRP) composite manhole covers and trench covers. 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 metal and concrete covers:
  • Lightweight for easy and safe manual removal
  • Load ratings from A15 to F900 (BS EN 124)
  • Chemically inert and corrosion resistant
  • Anti-slip/skid properties
Damaged Cast Iron and Concrete Covers Replaced

The previously installed, heavy and damaged cast iron and concrete covers caused a health and safety issue and needed replacing. Fibrelite’s lightweight medium duty composite trench cover was identified as the solution. Designed as a ‘fit and forget’ product, the maintenance free covers provide easy and safe access to the essential cabling.
