Read the Case Study
This is for extensive new construction work to redirect pipework from overhead gantries to underground. The site is regularly trafficked by heavy goods vehicles, which is why D400 covers were critical. Also, the company are actively involved in health and safety and could see the huge potential of lightweight covers for easy and quick removal. Various sizes have been manufactured to cater for the corners and smaller sections so a perfect fit is achieved.
The construction involved precast concrete trenches with a concrete rebate for the covers to be housed into. Extremely strong and easy to maintain with no maintenance issues was of great benefit to the customer.
During the installation, the Fibrelite technical team worked closely with the engineers and contractors from the design stage of the panels to delivery ensuring that the product was of the highest specification and the products were installed within the required project time frames.
Sophisticated Highly Specialised Material
Fibrelite is the world leading manufacturer of Fiber Reinforced Plastic (FRP) Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) composite manhole covers and trench covers.
